Playing career[edit]

After beginning his career with West Ham United and Portsmouth,[2][3] Bartlett played for the Denver Dynamos in the North American Soccer League.[4] Following his time with Denver Dynamos, he returned to England and signed for non-league side Slough Town where he enjoyed two years making 43 appearances, scoring seven times.[5] He appeared in pre-season friendlies for Brentford, but failed to make a competitive appearance.[6] His career was cut short by injury.[7]

After managerial spells at Yeading, Hounslow and Southall, Bartlett joined Wealdstone as manager in June 1995.[7] Between May 2013 and August 2017, he was the longest-serving manager in the top six tiers of the English football pyramid.[8] On 21 August 2017, it was announced that he had stepped down as manager and would remain with the club in a backroom role.[9]
