Where is Barry Horne now?

Everton’s legendary ‘tough tackling’ midfielder Barry Horne retired from playing in 2002 after a short spell playing for non-league Belper Town.

A cult hero at Goodison Park, Horne will forever be remembered for his 30-yard screamer of a goal against Wimbledon on the last day of the 1993-94 season which helped Everton survive relegation.

Whilst still an active player, Horne who was a former Wales national team captain, was elected Chairman of the PFA in 1995 until he left the role in 2001.

Prior to Horne’s footballing career, he had already gained a first-class degree in chemistry and materials science and was half way through a PhD before joining Wrexham in 1983.

In retirement he has returned to his science background and is now a teacher of physics and chemistry at Kings School in Chester.

He also works as the school’s director of football.

In 2011 Barry Horne joined Wrexham FC’s board of directors when the club was taken over by the supporter’s trust but stepped down from his role in 2016.

Horne has also worked extensively in the media since hanging up his boots and provided punditry on Match of the Day and Sky Sports as well as a writing a regular column about his beloved Everton in the Liverpool Echo.
