Above and beyond – Barry petition support exceeds 1,200

On June 11, the Barry Town Supporters Committee printed off a petition containing 1,100 signatures, in favour of them fielding a Barry side at Welsh League Division One level again next season.

The original target had been 100 – the extra thousand demonstrating beyond any doubt the strength of public feeling on the matter.

In the hours since then, people across the Welsh football community and beyond have continued to pledge support in their droves.

Here are some of the further signatories, whose views deserve to be heard.

This list starts at signee 1,101. For the full petition, visit http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/justice-for-barry-town-united/

Name: Chris Chappell on Jun 11, 2013
Comments: The bizarre decision taken by Barry Town’s owner should not be allowed to damage the position of the senior football club in Barry, whatever name this entity plays under. It’s not as if this is a giant being parachuted into a big league like the Man City women’s team or Rangers being dropped into the English Championship – Barry were already playing in this league! Please see sense.

Comments: As a Welsh football journalist for news website Golwg 360 I firmly believe our top division will not thrive (particularly from a crowd numbers perspective) until we have the best clubs playing in it. The sooner the better Barry are back in the top flight and this will happen sooner if they are placed where they belong for next season, in the Welsh League Division 1.
