Aaron Thomas Barry (born 24 November 1992) is an Irish footballer who plays as a defender for Derry City. Born in Dublin, Ireland he came through the ranks at Sheffield United's academy. Spending two years on the fringes of United's first team, he also spent six months on loan at Scottish side Dumbarton in 2013.

Career[edit]

Sheffield United[edit]

Barry joined Sheffield United having been recommended by Arklow Town.[2] Having played in United's academy side, he was part of the team that reached the final of the FA Youth Cup in 2011,[3] and was rewarded with a first senior contract in March 2012.[4] During the 2012–13 season Barry was on the fringes of United's first team and was an unused substitute on a number of occasions, and was handed another one–year professional contract in June 2013.[5]

In August 2013 Barry was allowed to join Scottish side Dumbarton on loan, initially for a six-month period,[6] and made his debut for the Sons a couple of days later in a Scottish League Cup first-round match against Albion Rovers.[7] Barry was a regular for the Sons during the first half of the season, making 22 appearances for the Scottish club. Despite attempts to extend his loan period, Barry was recalled by Sheffield United in January 2014, at the end of his agreed spell.[8]

Derry City[edit]

With his first team chances at Sheffield United limited, Barry undertook a short trial at Derry City before agreeing a one-year deal with the League of Ireland club in February 2014.[9]
