Born: 1942

Birthplace: Oxford

Died:

Position: Right-back

Biography: Only played 17 games before being released on a free transfer. During a game for Margate, he suffered a gashed leg and a few days later was rushed to hospital with suspected tetanus. It was thought that this may have been something to do with the fact that sheep had grazed on the land during the Second World War. This led to the PFA introducing compulsory tetanus injections for all players. After a short spell working as a set erector for the BBC, Barry became a driver for a wealthy Arab. Now lives in Weybridge and drives for a gentleman in London.
