Career[edit]

Bristol City[edit]

Born in Bristol, Golbourne joined his Bristol City's youth system in 2002, at age 15, after winning a scholarship to the club's academy.[2] He began his career within the youth system as a left-sided midfielder.[3] After four years in the youth system, Golbourne made his first-team debut for Bristol City in a 2–0 victory over Colchester United, coming on for Luke Wilkshire in the 72nd minute.[4] On 23 August 2005, he made his League Cup debut in a 4–2 loss to Barnet in the first round.[5] However, after two seasons with the club, Golbourne left his hometown club for Reading in January 2006 for an undisclosed fee.[6][7]

Reading[edit]

Less than 24 hours after a transfer to Reading, Golbourne made his reserves debut for the Royals in a 6–0 rout of Millwall's reserves.[8] Golbourne was awarded the League One Apprentice of the Year Award in March 2006 for his actions on the pitch, as well as his educational achievements.[9] On 17 April, after several months in reserves, he made his Reading first-team debut—a 3–1 win over Stoke City.[10]

After only two appearances in two seasons, Golbourne was made available for a loan by Reading boss Steve Coppell. On 16 August 2006, he was loaned to League Two club Wycombe Wanderers for one month.[11][12] He was immediately made available for the first-team squad, making his debut on 19 August in a 3–0 victory over Bury.[13] Just days before his initial return to Reading, Golbourne extended his stay at Adams Park with a two-month loan extension, after making four appearances for the Blues in his original loan deal.[14] On 25 August 2006, despite a 3–1 loss to Lincoln City,[15] Golbourne was named Man of the Match by the game's sponsor for his efforts in defence and midfield.[16] His first ever league goal came on 18 November 2006, in a 1–1 draw with Grimsby Town.[17] However, the goal came in Golbourne's final match on his loan to Wycombe, as he returned to Reading just days later.[18] Within several days of his return to Reading, he was immediately loaned back to Wycombe on a loan deal which lasted until the end of the 2006–07 season,[19] immediately making his way back into the starting line-up in a 1–0 win over Chester City.[20]

On 25 August 2007, Golbourne made his Premier League debut for Reading, in a 3–0 loss to Bolton Wanderers. However, he was subbed off the 63rd minute for Bobby Convey.[21] Three days later, he featured in Reading's 1–0 win over Swansea City, coming on in extra time in the 99th minute.[22]

After his return to Reading, Golbourne was again loaned out in November 2007, when he joined League One club Bournemouth on a month's loan.[23] On 6 November, he made his Bournemouth debut in a 3–1 defeat to Leeds United.[24] His first goal for Bournemouth, and the third of his career, came on 20 November in a 3–2 FA Cup victory over Barrow, when he netted the opening goal in the 43rd minute.[25] In mid-December, His loan with Bournemouth was extended until 12 January 2008.[26]

On 19 January 2009, Golbourne was loaned out to League One side Oldham Athletic on a one-month loan.[27] He was handed his debut on 23 January versus Stockport County in a 3–1 Oldham win.[28] On 23 March, Golbourne left Oldham and returned to Reading, after manager Joe Royle decided against extending the loan.[29]

Exeter City[edit]

Golbourne signed for Exeter City on 2 July after agreeing a one-year contract with the newly promoted League One club.[30] He ended speculation over his future by signing a new two-year contract with Exeter City in June 2010.[31]

Barnsley[edit]

On 30 January 2012 Golbourne joined Championship side Barnsley on a two-and-a-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee.[32] He made his debut on 4 February, scoring a consolation goal in a 2–1 defeat to Watford.[33] He became a regular first team player for the club, but missed the final months of the 2012–13 season with a knee injury. In total he made 53 appearances for the club during an eighteen-month stay.
