Unbelievable Barry Town FC: Success, Failure and Revival: 1993-2019

Ian Johnson

Regular price £16.99

Tax included.

From the publisher:

The success, failure and revival of Barry Town is a story that needs to be told. Few clubs have risen so high - facing Dynamo Kiev and FC Porto in the Champions League - and then sunk so low - going into administration, relegated and eventually withdrawn from football altogether - before being brought back to life by loyal fans who even had to take the Football Association of Wales to court in order to play. Following the club over 25 years, starting with the 1993-94 season when they beat Cardiff City to win the Welsh Cup, Unbelievable Barry Town covers the club's golden decade where they won the Welsh Premier seven times, through the years of playing as an amateur team under controversial owner Stuart Lovering, until the fans were able to take over and turn the club around to once again play in Europe in 2019.

The author:

Ian Johnson has been a Barry Town fan for decades, having been programme and website editor and a sports columnist for the Barry Gem and Barry & District News. He is also a local councillor for in Barry representing the ward that includes the club's home ground, Jenner Park.
