Having enjoyed an extensive youth career back in his native Wales, Barry Horne made the breakthrough into league football at Wrexham, with whom he played in the European Cup-Winners’ Cup.

Spells at Portsmouth and Southampton followed and it was from the latter that he joined Everton in 1992.

By that time he was captain of Wales and upon arriving at Goodison he forged a formidable partnership in the heart of midfield with Joe Parkinson under Joe Royle’s management, the tenacious duo were a key factor in the side being dubbed the ‘Dogs of War’. Horne was a pivotal player in helping guide the Blues to 1995 FA Cup glory.

Horne was another player who produced for the Club when it was in its direst need – that game against Wimbledon in 1993/94. With the Blues trailing 2-1, Horne took aim from 30 yards to level the scores, with Graham Stuart scoring a dramatic winner later on to seal safety as the Blues evaded relegation in dramatic fashion on the final day of the season.

A year later, the tough-tackling midfielder scooped Everton’s Player of the Year award, and he is also the Club’s first scorer of a Premier League goal.

Leaving the club in 1996, he turned out for Birmingham City, Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday, Kidderminster and Walsall before retiring to take up a teaching role, whilst also forging a career in the media.
