    Barry Town History & Honours
   After a difficult decade Barry Town regained their Welsh Premier status in 2017 as champions of the Welsh League.
  As a full time club Barry won the LoW seven times, most recently in 2002-03. They also won the Welsh Cup and League Cup on a regular basis and represented Wales in Europe. But in 2003-04 they were relegated amidst a financial crisis following the departure of publicity seeking John Fashanu.
  The club endured a period of turmoil under the controversial stewardship of Stuart Lovering who was to be seen at loggerheads with supporters.
  At the end of the 2005-6 season Barry slipped to what proved ot be their lowest ebb. At this time a new manager was appointed in the form of Gavin Chesterfield whose presence signalled the gradual rise of the club via a number of promotions despite the unprecitable antics of chairman Lovering.
  In 2013 Barry had to fight another battle, this time in the High Court against the vested interest of the FAW who seemed ot have turned against the club they once favoured. But the court ruled in the club's favour and a new period of success followed.
  Two back to back promotions saw Barry once again in the second tier of Welsh football and this resurgence was capped in 2016-17 with the Welsh League title and a return to the Welsh Premier.
