Date of birth
Having started his career at Hartlepool and becoming a regular at Stockport, Tony Barras’ claim to fame came during a five year spell as a York City stalwart, when he played in the side that famously beat Manchester United in a 3-0 League Cup win at Old Trafford in 1995, scoring the third goal after a brace from Paul Barnes.
He joined Reading on loan on in March 1999, the deal becoming permanent six days later. Although making only two Madejski Stadium starts towards the end of that season, he did manage to score a goal in his six-game stint as a Royal – in a 1-1 draw at Luton Town.
He joined Walsall that summer and played for the Saddlers in their Play-off final win over Alan Pardew’s men at the Millennium Stadium two years later.
After short stints with Plymouth, Notts County and Macclesfield, his latest signing brought him to North Premier League side New Mills, signing in July 2010.
Up until the end of the 2011/12 season, he made a total of 54 appearances, scoring only once during his time.
