Purser began 2000-01 in fine style for Barnet, scoring with a header in the 3-0 victory over Shrewsbury Town in the opening match which was also his debut in senior football.

However, although he regularly featured from the subs bench, it was not until the end of the campaign that he got much of an opportunity in the first team.

A promising young striker, he scored an outstanding individual goal for the Bees in their 3-2 defeat at Blackpool in April.

Along with his Barnet colleague Greg Heald, Purser joined Leyton Orient on Transfer Deadline Day 2003 for a combined fee of £18,000.
