Well it's St Patricks day really, but I thought we would rename it Barry Conlon day in honour of the Irishmans stint as a Striker at York City. Signed back in 1999 from Southend United for around 100k. Barry played 48 times for York City scoring 11 goals. He fell out of favour in 2001 and was loaned out to Colchester United before being sold to Darlington.
At the time he played for City to be fair we were not that good and I always thought that at the time he was one of our better players. As with all York City's big money buys in the 90s it never really worked out for Barry. He had a reasonable career though with notable stints at Darlington and Bradford among a throng of clubs that he played for.
It goes without saying that we would like to wish any Irish York City supporters a very happy St Patricks Day.
