|Fry at Manchester United|
Entrepreneur Keith Cheesman saw the potential of the young Fry in management and offered him the position at Dunstable Town in early 1974. Still in his 20’s Barry, through his contacts, acquired the services of senior players the calibre of Jeff Astle and George Best – although Best only appeared in a handful of games. Kevin Millett, who made over 400 appearances for Barnet and was generally referred to as one of Barry’s lieutenants over the years told me “I was playing under Barry at Dunstable, and one afternoon in walked George. The lads just couldn’t believe it. He sat down next to me in the dressing room and said ‘hi lads’ and I couldn’t take my eyes of him there he was the legend, absolutely incredible that I played on the same pitch as Best”.
