Club career

Oldham Athletic

James Alan Tarkowski was born in Manchester and grew up there in the New Moston district . After he finished his school education, he moved in May 2009 to the youth department of the third division club Oldham Athletic from his hometown of Manchester. In October 2009 he made his debut in the reserve team of the Latics . However, the central defender did not play his first game for the professionals until January 22, 2011. In the 2-1 home win of his team against Brentford FC , Tarkowski came on in the 80th minute for the injured Neal Trotman . On March 12th, in the 1-0 defeat by Leyton Orient , he ran for the first time in the starting XI Oldham. In May 2011 he received a profile contract with Oldham Athletic. In his first season 2010/11 he came to nine missions.

In the 2011/12 season he only got his first minutes of action on December 10, 2011, when he came into play for the last half hour in the game against Sheffield Wednesday . From the end of January James Tarkowski found himself in the starting line-up of Oldham. He scored his first goal in his professional career on the 46th and final day of the season. In the 2-1 home win against Carlisle United, Tarkowski scored the goal to lead his team 1-0. At the end of the season he had one goal in 18 appearances.

The breakthrough at Oldham Athletic Tarkowski celebrated in the 2012/13 season , in which he was used in 26 games and was able to score two goals. At the end of the season he extended his contract to summer 2015. Due to his strong performance at the start of the 2013/14 season , Tarkowski was voted Oldham's Player of the Month for August. At the side of Jonathan Grounds , he became an undisputed regular player. On January 22, 2014, he signed a new contract with Oldham, which should now run until the end of the 2016 season. Still, he left the Latics eight days later. During his time at Oldham Athletic, he appeared in 89 league games and scored six goals.

Brentford FC

James Tarkowski signed a 3½ year contract with league rivals, Brentford FC on January 31st. After not being used at the beginning, he made his debut on March 1, 2014, in a 1-1 draw with Carlisle United . On March 11th, Tarkowski was able to network for his new employer for the first time. In the game against Tranmere Rovers, which Brentford won 2-0, he hit the opposing goal with a header. In his first six months, Tarkowski made 13 league games and two goals. During this season he was also able to celebrate promotion to the Football League Championship with Brentford FC .

In his first season in the second division, the 2014/15 season , Tarkowski played mostly in the starting lineup of Brentford. With the Bees , he finished the season in 5th place. This qualified them for the playoffs for the last promotion place for the Premier League . However, they already lost the two semi-finals against FC Middlesbrough and were eliminated. Tarkowski finished the season with 38 appearances and one goal.

The 2015/16 season got off to an excellent start for Tarkovsky. On the first day of the new season, Brentford was in the home game against Ipswich Town , 2-0 down until the second minute of stoppage time, before Tarkowski first assisted Andre Gray's goal in the 92nd minute and then himself in the 96th minute one corner of Akaki Gogia in the mesh. As a result, Brentford was able to convert the believed defeat into a draw and Tarkowski secured his place in the team of the week. Already on the next match day, however, Tarkowski experienced a setback when he broke his nose in the game against Bristol City . He was still involved in the next few games. Given his good performance in the Brentford jersey, speculation was raised in January about whether the center-back will move to a bigger club. Numerous offers for Tarkowski made sure that he refused to play against Burnley FC . He was then suspended by Brentford coach Dean Smith from the squad and was no longer used for Brentford FC. Tarkowski came in two years for Brentford in 74 games in which he could score four goals.

The speculations about Tarkowski about the future came to an end on February 1, 2016, when league rivals Burnley FC announced that they had secured the services of the central defender. The Clarets transferred a transfer fee of four million euros to Brentford for him. He made his debut for Burnley on February 20 when he came on against Rotherham United for the injured Michael Keane.
