Club career[edit]

Huddersfield Town[edit]

Breakthrough to first team[edit]

Born in Halifax, West Yorkshire,[1] Berrett is a product of the Huddersfield Town academy and he 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. 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. The following week he made his first full league debut in Huddersfield's 3–1 defeat at home to Gillingham.

His first goal for the Terriers came in the 3–2 win against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium on 22 March 2008.

On 13 May, he signed a new two-year deal at the Galpharm Stadium. On 6 August, he scored to give Huddersfield the lead in their centenary match against Arsenal at the Galpharm Stadium where Town lost 2–1 in the end.

2008–09[edit]

Since Stan Ternent's departure as Huddersfield manager, caretaker boss Gerry Murphy has deployed Berrett in a sweeper role as part of a back five. 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.

He signed a contract extension which will keep him at the Galpharm until 2012.

2009–10[edit]

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

Carlisle United[edit]

After being put on the transfer list by manager Lee Clark, Berrett left the Galpharm to join fellow League One side Carlisle United on a free transfer on 6 July 2010. Also, Berrett is known for his ' long range goals ' this comes after goals from in between 35–50 yards. Berrett is Carlisle United's main set piece taker. On 11 June it was confirmed that Berrett was signing a new 2-year deal with Carlisle.

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 United.[2] After an injury-plagued start to the season Berrett made 32 appearances for Yeovil in all competitions scoring once, the winner against Swindon Town in April 2015.[3] At the end of the season following Yeovil's relegation to League Two, Berrett was one of four players offered a contract termination by new manager Paul Sturrock.[4]

York City[edit]
