Barry Duke Portrait

Profile...

Long-haired Barry Duke spent less than a season with Cradley, and also appeared during 1971 for both Swindon and West Ham. He had arrived on the British scene with an impressive breakthrough year at Weymouth three years earlier. Rated one of the most promising newcomers of 1968, he had chalked up a maximum within his third match for the South-coast club.


Update...

Barry attended the riders reunion in November 1999, and happily proved that his hair is just as long as it ever was! :o)
