Barry started his football career as a mascot to South Adelaide for four years. He also played school football where he captained his school teams at Gepps Cross Primary and later Nailsworth Technical High School. Barry also held the position of Vice Captain in the Gepps Cross Under 14 team before moving onto Colts and Thirds football with North Adelaide, working his way up to senior ranks through our Seconds side.

Barry was an exciting, speedy, and determined rover and throughout his association with North Adelaide he always displayed a very cheerful disposition and, on the field, always gave his best, helping his teammates at every opportunity.

During his career he won various awards including the Colts Leading Goalkicker in 1961 and Best Rover in 1962, Thirds leading goal kicker in 1964 and at senior level the Best First Year Player award in 1966. He also won the 1967 Club Service Award and in 1969 the Most Enthusiastic Player Award.

With other talented rovers like Von Bertouch and Francou in the mix during the 1971/72 premiership seasons he was in and out of the league side. He played only 6 games in 1971 after having missed 4 games through injury. In 1972 he only played 7 games but still managed to make the most of his opportunities and kicked a very creditable 19 goals.

It was a very fitting tribute that Barry won the Fairest and Most Brilliant award for the Seconds in 1971, Meritorious Service Award in 1972 and was on standby to play in both the 1971 and 1972 League Grand Finals.

Barry played 62 senior games for North Adelaide and amassed 98 goals over a long and distinguished association with the club.

After leaving North, Barry played another 30 league games with West Adelaide before moving to coaching roles - spending 6 years coaching in the amateur league with Ingle Farm and Salisbury clubs.

Barry then returned to North Adelaide, coaching the under 15 's for 3 years then coaching the under 17 's and under 19's for a further 4 years where he was recognized for his contribution to the development of many of our future stars.

Barry then joined the Adelaide Crows recruiting committee, a role he continued for 10 years.
