Club career[edit]

Huddersfield Town[edit]

Berrett was born in Halifax, West Yorkshire.[1] He is a product of the Huddersfield Town academy, and made his first team debut at Boundary Park when he came on as a 69th-minute substitute in the 1–1 draw with Oldham Athletic in April 2007.[citation needed] He signed a professional contract with Huddersfield on 5 July 2007.[1]

Berrett made his full debut in Huddersfield's third round FA Cup win over Premier League side Birmingham City on 5 January 2008.[citation needed] The following week he made his first full league debut in Huddersfield's 3–1 defeat at home to Gillingham.[citation needed]

His first goal for Hudersifled came in the 3–2 win against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium on 22 March 2008.[citation needed]

On 13 May 2008, he signed a new two-year deal at the Galpharm Stadium.[citation needed] On 6 August 2008, he scored to give Huddersfield the lead in their centenary match against Arsenal at the Galpharm Stadium, in which they lost 2–1.[citation needed]

Following Stan Ternent's departure as Huddersfield manager, caretaker boss Gerry Murphy deployed Berrett in a sweeper role as part of a back five.[citation needed] Then, following Lee Clark's decision to revert to the 4–4–2 formation, Berrett found himself out of the team again, but following an illness to Anthony Pilkington, just before the game against Crewe Alexandra in February 2009, he got back in the starting line-up and scored a goal, but Huddersfield lost the match 3–1.[citation needed]

He signed a contract extension which would keep him at the club until 2012.[citation needed]

Berrett made nine appearances only stating two with seven coming off the bench in the 2009–10 season.[citation needed] He made his first appearances of the season coming on as a 56th-minute subtitute for Lee Peltier in Huddersfield's League Cup second round tie away at Newcastle United.[citation needed] His first start of the season came in Huddersfield's 1–0 away defeat at Colchester United on 3 October 2009.[citation needed] His first home appearance did not come until 12 December 2009, when he came on as a 90th-minute substitute in Huddersfield's 2–1 home win over Gillingham.[citation needed]

Carlisle United[edit]

After being put on the transfer list by manager Lee Clark, Berrett left Huddersfield to join fellow League One side Carlisle United on a free transfer on 6 July 2010.[citation needed] On 11 June[when?] it was confirmed that Berrett would sign a new two-year deal with Carlisle.[citation needed]

Yeovil Town[edit]

On 3 July 2014, Berrett signed for Yeovil Town on a two-year contract after he failed to agree a new contract at Carlisle.[2] After an injury-plagued start to the season Berrett made 32 appearances for Yeovil scoring once,[citation needed] the winner against Swindon Town in April 2015.[3] At the end of the season, following Yeovil's relegation into League Two, Berrett was one of four players offered a contract termination by new manager Paul Sturrock.[4]
