Clubs to remember Barrie Greenwood

Football West News

NPL WA and State League clubs will hold a moment’s silence on Saturday for former WA State Team manager Barrie Greenwood, who died this week aged 84.

Barrie, a well respected figure in WA football circles, was also a referee, author and TV and radio commentator.

Football West Head of Referees Eddie Lennie praised Barrie’s contribution to the game.

“On behalf of the Football West referees department we would like to express our condolences to Barrie’s family,” he said.

“Barrie was a good supporter of referees here in Western Australia.”

Originally from Rochdale in England, Barrie arrived in WA in 1958 and played five seasons with Caledonian, where he was Fairest and Best in 1961.

After he finished playing Barrie turned to refereeing, taking charge of a number of cup finals in his seven-year stint, before becoming WA State Team manager.
