Paul Barry

Position:

Educated at Lady Mary High School, Paul Barry had an outstanding schools and youth career with 22 games for Cardiff Schools, three seasons with Cardiff Youth (including captaining the side in 1968) and spending two seasons in the Welsh Youth squad in 1967 and 1968. Paul was awarded his Cardiff Athletic cap in the 1969 – 70 season and made his debut for the first team against Nuneaton in 1969. Sadly, the next two seasons were lost to illness and by the time full health and fitness had been regained Paul had fallen behind Carl Smith and Roger Lane in the pecking order for the No 8 role at the Arms Park. The 13th and final game that Paul played for the first team came against Paignton in September 1973. After leaving Cardiff, Paul played for two seasons at Penarth where he played 50 games under the captaincy of Lyn Baxter and St Peters playing over 200 games for the ‘Rocks’ and captaining the first team for three seasons.
