Barker moved to the seaside in the summer from Rotherham United and slotted into the back four with ease. Playing at right-back Barker only missed one league game this season through a suspension. He also bagged 6 goals from the right back spot, important ones coming in the away play-off game at Oldham and the 2-1 away win at Crewe with a 91st minute winning header.

Other winners on the night included, Andy Morrell, Ian Evatt, Wes Hoolahan and Lewis Edge.
