Barry joined Liverpool Football Club in 2013 after working previously at Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers.

He arrived at Wigan Athletic in 2003 to work in their Centre of Excellence where he worked with players aged 10-13. He then moved to Bolton Wanderers in 2007 to work at their Academy, coaching boys aged 11-14 for six seasons.

During his time at both clubs he gained valuable experience working across various age groups.

Speaking about his appointment as U18s boss, academy director Alex Inglethorpe said: "We're delighted Barry has decided to take up this position.

"He already has a strong relationship with those players who will make the step up to our U18s in 2018-19 thanks to his previous role with the U16s."
