Paul George Barron (born 16 September 1953) is an English former football goalkeeper. He is currently the goalkeeping coach at Nottingham Forest.

Playing career

Born in Woolwich, London, Barron qualified as a PE instructor before becoming a professional footballer.[1] He played for non-league Welling United, Wycombe Wanderers and Slough Town, before turning professional with Plymouth Argyle in July 1976.[1]

He signed for Arsenal in July 1978 for £70,000, as cover for Pat Jennings. Barron made his Arsenal debut on 2 August 1978 against Manchester City but was unable to oust Jennings from the first team; after only eight appearances in two seasons he moved on to Crystal Palace in 1980. He joined Palace along with Clive Allen, while Kenny Sansom moved to Arsenal as part of the deal.[1]

At Selhurst Park Barron was favoured by manager Terry Venables over John Burridge as Palace suffered relegation in 1980–81. He remained at Palace in 1981–82 and 1982–83 as the Eagles finished in 15th position in back to back seasons. Barron joined West Bromwich Albion in December 1982 and spent three seasons at the Hawthorns making 63 First Division appearances. In 1984–85 he joined Stoke City and played once keeping a clean sheet in a 0–0 draw away at Leicester City. He joined Queens Park Rangers in August 1985 and he appeared in the 1986 Football League Cup Final for QPR, in their defeat by Oxford United at Wembley Stadium. Barron spent two seasons at Loftus Road which included a sort spell on loan at Reading and in the summer of 1988 he returned to his first club Welling United.

Coaching career

After retiring as a player, Barron became a goalkeeping coach, working at Coventry City, Queens Park Rangers and West Bromwich Albion. He then moved to Aston Villa, before joining Middlesbrough in 2001.[2] Barron was sent to the stands during Middlesbrough's away League Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur on 26 September 2007, after protesting about Gareth Bale's opening goal.[3] In November 2007 he left Boro to become goalkeeping coach at Newcastle United.[4] Barron left Newcastle United in December 2010 following the departure of manager Chris Hughton.[5]
