YORK City’s record appearance-maker Barry Jackson has died at the age of 83.

A first-teamer with the Minstermen from 1958 to 1970, Barry made 538 appearances for York, with just one of those coming as a substitute.

Born in Askrigg, North Yorkshire, on February 2, 1938, Barry became an uncomprom-ising central defender known for his unwavering commitment to the City cause.

With junior club Cliftonville, Barry played as a centre-forward but caught then City manager Sam Bartram’s eye as a defender, signing a full-time contract with the club in 1956.

After a couple of seasons in the reserves, he got his chance in the first team, when regular centre-half Howard Johnson was injured, and he seized it with both hands.

Barry was dropped only once during his time with York City, in 1968 following an incredible run of 474 games.

He joined Scarborough in 1970.

Barry sadly passed away on November 7 after a long illness.

His brother Grant said: “Barry will be sadly missed by me and I am sure will be fondly remembered by those who were lucky enough to know him and enjoy his 110 per cent efforts on the field.”
