Rees, Barry Great player who I watched on the few (4) occasions he played for us in Div 4. Just wanted to respond to your query as to his first name. It was, in fact, Barry. Hope that helps. Keep up this lovely work.

Rees I am a Brighton fan and I am trying to find and add information to the Brighton archives on Die or( Barry) Rees. He played for Everton reserves and was signed by Brighton 1964-65 4th division championship season. He was an outstanding mid-fielder. Alas, he was killed driving home to Wales that same season. Does any Evertonian know of this great young player. Any details would be appreciated for the Brighton & Hove Albion archives Many thanks, John
