Stats

As a teenager, Barrett helped Chester City to promotion from Division Four in 1985/86 while on loan.

At Oldham he helped the Lancashire side to the Division Two title in 1991 and promotion to Division One (which became the FA Premier League a year later). He was also a member of the side that lost the League Cup Final in 1990 to Nottingham Forest at Wembley.

His greatest success as a player came with Aston Villa where in his first six months at the club they finished runners up in the Premier League and in 1993/94 won the League Cup beating Manchester United 3–1 at Wembley with Earl playing the full 90 minutes. He was bought by Everton midway through the next season and although Joe Royle's men won the FA Cup in May 1995, Barrett had already been cup tied (at Aston Villa) meaning he could not claim a winners medal.

Much of his spell as Everton was dogged with a knee injury and he moved on to Sheffield Wednesday in February 1998. Injury again restricted him at Sheffield Wednesday as the club were on a downward spiral and were relegated from the Premiership at the end of Earl's second season with them - upon which he retired from playing.
