Claude Barrett (5 December 1907 – 3 August 1976) was an English footballer who played in the Football League for Bradford Park Avenue, Port Vale and York City.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Rawdon, West Yorkshire, Barrett played for Rawdon Old Boys and turned professional with Bradford Park Avenue in February 1932,[2] where he made 47 Second Division appearances in the Football League.[1] He joined Port Vale of the Third Division North in June 1936 and after making his debut in a 1–0 defeat at Wrexham on 19 September 1936, he made nineteen consecutive appearances, only losing his place through influenza in January 1937.[3] However, upon recovery he discovered that Roderick Welsh had effectively filled his place and so Barrett left for York City on a free transfer in April 1937.[3] He made his debut in a 2–1 defeat to Crewe Alexandra on 6 November 1937 and he finished the 1937–38 season with 38 appearances in all competitions.[4] He lost his place in the York team following a 6–0 defeat to Bradford City on 10 December 1938, and was released at the end of the 1938–39 season.[2]
