Club career

Early career

Born in Croydon, Greater London, Puncheon began his career with Wimbledon, and moved with the team to Milton Keynes, where the club became Milton Keynes Dons in 2004. He was released in January 2006. He moved to Barnet in June of the same year, after brief spells with Fisher Athletic and Lewes.[3] He was named FA Cup Player of the Third Round in 2007 and the following season after scoring a succession of brilliant goals (including a last minute 35-yard free kick versus Bradford) was named in the PFA Team of the Season.[4]

Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth Argyle signed Puncheon from Barnet for £250,000 in 2008. He endured an unsuccessful 18-month spell at the club, making six league appearances. He was loaned to former club MK Dons three times in two years, where he scored 11 goals in 51 appearances.

Southampton

On 30 January 2010, Puncheon joined Southampton which then led to his loan deal at MK Dons to be cut short.[5] He scored his first goal in a 5–1 victory over Walsall, and scored again a few days later, in a 5–0 victory over Huddersfield.

At the start of the 2010–11 season, he was a regular in the first team. However, when Alan Pardew lost his job just days after a 4–0 win away to Bristol Rovers, Southampton hired Nigel Adkins as manager. Under Adkins, he stayed in the first team, but found himself under increasing pressure from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for his place. Eventually Adkins lost patience with Puncheon's erratic performances, and dropped him to the bench in favour of 17-year-old Chamberlain, who was later sold to Arsenal for a reported £15m. On 16 November 2010, Puncheon moved on an emergency loan deal to Millwall.[6] He scored his first goal on his first game for Millwall in their 1–0 victory over Middlesbrough.[7] On 1 January 2011, Puncheon scored a hat-trick in the 3–0 victory over Crystal Palace.[8]

On 31 January 2011, Puncheon joined Blackpool on loan until the end of the season.[9] He made his debut, scoring a goal, at Everton on 5 February.[10] He scored his second goal against Chelsea on 7 March at Bloomfield Road. Puncheon re-joined the Saints after Blackpool's failed attempt to fight off relegation.[11] On 31 August 2011, Puncheon joined Queens Park Rangers on loan until 2 January 2012.[12][13]

He returned to the Saints after his unsuccessful loan spell at QPR,[14] but on 21 January 2012, he publicly criticised Executive chairman Nicola Cortese.[15] However just days later, it was revealed that Puncheon had apologised to Cortese and would be available for selection in the first team.[16] He then started the next two matches: a 1–1 draw in the FA Cup at Millwall[17] and a 1–1 draw in the Championship against Cardiff City.[18]

He scored his first goal of the 2012–13 season with a 30-yard volley in a league cup win at Stevenage. He scored his first Premier League goal for Southampton in a 4–1 home victory against Aston Villa. His second came when Southampton won 3–1 away to Queens Park Rangers. He scored his third Premier League goal in the 61st minute against Reading to secure Southampton a vital 1–0 victory and move them out of the relegation zone. His fourth was scored to give Southampton a 2–2 draw away to the Champions of Europe Chelsea. On 9 February 2013, he scored his fifth in Southampton's 3–1 home win against 2011–12 champions Manchester City.

On 1 March 2013, Puncheon signed a new contract with Southampton, expiring in 2016.[19]

Crystal Palace

On 21 August 2013, Puncheon signed a one-year loan with Crystal Palace.[20] He missed a penalty as Palace lost 2–0 away to Tottenham Hotspur on 11 January 2014,[21] but made up for his miss by scoring the only goal of their 1–0 win against Stoke City the following weekend.[22] On 31 January 2014, Puncheon made his loan spell into a permanent move, for a fee of around £1.75m.[23] Puncheon's three goals in January and a further three in back-to-back wins in April that lifted Palace away from the relegation zone, led boss Tony Pulis to issue a 'hands off' warning to other clubs interesting in signing Puncheon.[24]

On 16 August 2014, in Palace's first match of the new season away to Arsenal, Puncheon took a corner which was headed in by Brede Hangeland for the first goal of the game. He was sent off for his second booking in the 89th minute, after which Arsenal scored their winning goal.[25] On 17 January 2015, Puncheon scored his third goal of the season and second in as many games against Burnley in a 3–2 away win. Crystal Palace had come from 2 goals down to claim victory to boost their survival hopes. Palace manager Alan Pardew heaped praise on Puncheon's performance, describing him as "the best player on the pitch by a country mile."[26]

On 6 April 2015, Puncheon scored the winning goal for Crystal Palace against Manchester City. Puncheon's goal came from a freekick which went past Manchester City's goalkeeper Joe Hart.[27] He opened the scoring in the 2016 FA Cup Final against Manchester United with a goal in the 78th minute, but Palace went on to lose the match 2–1 after extra time.[28]

On 18 July 2017, Puncheon replaced Scott Dann as captain.[29] In January 2018, manager Roy Hodgson announced that Puncheon would play no further part in the 2017–18 season following a cruciate ligament injury sustained while playing against Manchester City.[30]

In May 2019, Crystal Palace issued a statement that Puncheon would leave the club at the end of the 2018–19 season.[31]

Huddersfield Town

On 4 January 2019, Puncheon signed for Premier League club Huddersfield Town on loan until the end of the season.[32]

Personal life

Puncheon is of Jamaican descent and is eligible for the Jamaica national football team.[33]

In December 2017, Puncheon was arrested and charged with possession of an offensive weapon, common assault, and a public order offence of "causing fear or provocation of violence" after a fight outside a nightclub in Reigate.[34][35] On 5 January 2018, Puncheon appeared in court where he denied the charge of assault. The charge of possessing an offensive weapon was withdrawn and he was bailed to appear again in court on 4 June.[36] He later changed his plea to guilty and was given a community order requiring him to carry out 210 hours of unpaid work, and pay the doorman involved £250 compensation.[37]

2009–10 Southampton F.C. season

The 2009–10 season was Southampton's fifth consecutive season in The Football League and their first season in League One. Having been relegated the previous season, Southampton looked to reclaim their place in the Championship by being promoted in 2009–10. On 28 March 2010, The Saints won the League Trophy for the first time, defeating Carlisle United 4–1 at Wembley. On 25 April, however, Southampton's hopes of a playoff place were ended after Huddersfield Town beat bottom-place side Stockport County 6–0 to claim the final place. The Saints eventually finished in 7th position, just one place and seven points below the play-offs.

2010–11 Blackpool F.C. season

The 2010–11 season was Blackpool F.C.'s debut season in the Premier League, after winning the 2009–10 Championship play-off Final in what was their 99th consecutive season in The Football League. It was also their 28th overall season in English football's top tier, but their first since 1971. It was Ian Holloway's second season as manager.

2012–13 Southampton F.C. season

The 2012–13 Southampton F.C. season was the club's 14th season in the Premier League, and their 36th at the top level of English football. Having achieved consecutive promotions from League One and the Championship the previous two seasons, the club were looking to retain their place in the Premier League after a seven-year absence from the top flight. Southampton finished 14th in the league table, five points above the relegation zone. They also made it to the fourth round of the League Cup, and were eliminated from the FA Cup in the third round by Chelsea.In preparation for their first season back in the top flight, Southampton strengthened their squad relatively heavily during the summer transfer window, breaking the club's transfer fee record twice with the acquisitions of Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez in July and Uruguayan midfielder Gastón Ramírez from Bologna on deadline day. Other significant additions included Rangers midfielder Steven Davis, Japanese defender Maya Yoshida, and young full-back Nathaniel Clyne. Several players were released at the start of the campaign, while Dan Harding was the only player sold by the club, moving to Nottingham Forest in July. Norwegian centre-back Vegard Forren was signed in January 2013, although did not make an appearance during his first season at the club.

Southampton began their first top-flight campaign in seven years against reigning champions Manchester City and runners-up Manchester United, and picked up only four points from their opening ten games leaving them firmly at the bottom of the table. In November and December the team's fortunes improved, and they picked up important wins over fellow strugglers to lift themselves out of the relegation zone. After Christmas the Saints went on a six-game unbeaten run, and they later picked up high-profile wins against Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea to continue to move away from the drop zone. Survival in the Premier League was confirmed on 14 May when Wigan Athletic lost to Arsenal to take the final relegation place. Southampton finished 14th in the table having won nine, drawn 14, and lost 15 of their 38 games, collecting 41 points in the process.Despite leading Southampton to back-to-back promotions in 2011 and 2012, manager Nigel Adkins was fired in January 2013, with the club in 15th place in the Premier League table, and was replaced by former Espanyol boss Mauricio Pochettino. Along with the manager, the majority of Adkins's coaching team were also dismissed, replaced by staff of Pochettino's appointment. The winner of the club's Player of the Season award was Morgan Schneiderlin, who was voted in ahead of top scorer Rickie Lambert and midfield partner Jack Cork.

2013–14 Crystal Palace F.C. season

The 2013–14 season was Crystal Palace's first season back in the Premier League after 8 years. After a terrible start to the season which saw Ian Holloway resign and Tony Pulis take over as manager, Palace recovered and finished in an impressive 11th position. The club also competed in the League Cup and the FA Cup.

2013–14 Southampton F.C. season

The 2013–14 Southampton F.C. season was the club's 15th season in the Premier League, and their 37th in the top division of English football. Having secured their place in the Premier League the previous season following a seven-year absence from the top flight, the club progressed in their league performance and achieved their main aim of a top-ten finish. Southampton finished eighth in the Premier League table, having won 15, drawn 11, and lost 12 of their 38 games played: their best season since 2002–03. They also made it to the fifth round of the FA Cup and the fourth round of the League Cup.After releasing eight players at the beginning of the season, Southampton signed Croatian centre back Dejan Lovren from French side Lyon for a fee reported to be in the region of £8.5 million. The club later broke their record transfer fee twice, first signing Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama from Scottish club Celtic for £12.5 million and later enlisting Italian striker Dani Osvaldo for £15 million. Defender Vegard Forren and midfielder Richard Chaplow left the club in July, winger Jason Puncheon joined Crystal Palace on loan for the season, former team captain Dean Hammond was sold to Leicester City, and striker Emmanuel Mayuka joined French side Sochaux-Montbéliard on loan for the season. In the January transfer window, Tadanari Lee and Aaron Martin were released from the club; Billy Sharp, Lee Barnard and Danny Fox left on loan deals; and Jason Puncheon's loan deal with Crystal Palace was made permanent. Club record signing Dani Osvaldo also left the club in a loan move to Juventus on 31 January, following his involvement in a training ground fight with defender José Fonte earlier in the month.Displaying evidence of a much stronger defence than the previous season, Southampton started 2013–14 well by winning six of their first 11 games, conceding only five goals, and remaining unbeaten for almost two months between September and November, reaching a peak of third in the Premier League table in the process. This run of form led to manager Mauricio Pochettino being named the Premier League Manager of the Month for October, ahead of José Mourinho, Arsène Wenger, and Brendan Rodgers. Four losses in their next six matches followed, however, and the Saints had fallen to ninth position by Christmas; in their six matches before Christmas, they conceded a total of 13 goals, more than double the five conceded in their opening 11. The team returned on Boxing Day to pick up their first win since early November, and a period of mixed fortunes saw the team remain just above the middle of the league table.After repeated speculation surrounding his future with the club, it was announced on 15 January 2014 that Southampton chairman Nicola Cortese, who helped bring the club out of administration in 2009 with then owner Markus Liebherr, had resigned from the post. This was reportedly due to tensions with Liebherr's daughter Katharina, who took over ownership of the club when her father died in 2010. Rumours that it was Katherina Liebherr's intention to sell the club circulated but were subsequently proven to be unfounded. The future of manager Mauricio Pochettino was called into question by Cortese's departure, after he had previously stated that he would leave if Cortese left, but he committed his future to the club until at least the end of the season, with a more long-term decision to be made upon the season's conclusion. A number of sources also claimed that Southampton's players were at risk of leaving, with Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, and Rickie Lambert all being linked with moves away from the club, although Liebherr announced quickly that "The club [had] no plans to sell any of the squad" during January. After much speculation, Ralph Krueger was appointed chairman officially on 12 March 2014.

2015–16 Crystal Palace F.C. season

The 2015–16 season was Crystal Palace's third consecutive season in the Premier League and their 110th year in existence. Crystal Palace participated in the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup. They finished 15th in the Premier League and were runners-up in the FA Cup for the second time in their history. The season covers the period from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016.

2016 FA Cup Final

The 2016 FA Cup Final was the 135th final of the FA Cup, the world's oldest football cup competition.
