Barmby is impressing up front for Hartlepool.
"When I was younger, because of my pace and skill, I got put out on the wing and I did really like it there," said Barmby to the Hartlepool Mail.
"But I like playing up front as well because I feel like I get more involved.
"I prefer it up front because you are always in the action."
