Colours

For the majority of its existence, the Barry senior side has worn a predominantly green strip; something which stems back as far as the club's very origins. Indeed, legend has it that officials secured the inaugural playing kit from Plymouth Argyle, with whom they shared business links.

From 1913 to 1992, a span of some eight decades, Barry ran out at Jenner Park more often than not in green. There have been brief exceptions; most notably the disastrous 1971-72 campaign, where the experimental introduction of a claret and blue strip coincided with one of the club's worst ever seasons. However, this proved a fleeting flirtation, with green returning soon after as the club's colour of choice.

In 1992, the war with the Football Association of Wales over which country the club could play in led to a change; with the exiled first team playing out of Worcester in a new red kit to differentiate themselves from the Town side manning the fort at Jenner Park in the confines of the local league.

Ultimately returning to Wales and Jenner Park for the start of the 1993-94 season, the first team would bring the red kit back home with them; most notably lifting the Welsh League Division One championship in the colour after earning promotion to the fledgling Konica League of Wales.

However, it was the club's remarkable cup form during that landmark campaign which saw a preference develop for its alternate yellow kit; something which would be solidified by the famous Welsh Cup Final win for Barry (in yellow) against Cardiff City in May 1994.

Worn as the Town won an unprecedented three domestic cup competitions and heralded as a 'lucky' strip as a result, the club would retain the colour for its home matches from the start of 1994-95 (its inaugural League of Wales season).

Then, as a result of the huge success and television exposure that followed, yellow would become the kit colour synonymous with Town football at Jenner Park; a change embraced by Town supporters, who won the affectionate moniker of 'The Yellow People' during their European adventures to follow.

Nevertheless, upon taking control for footballing matters in 2011, the club's supporters moved to bring back the traditional green kit as its current alternate kit; paying respect to the club's English pyramid heritage in the process.

Today, supporters are happy to follow their team in either colour; with the revived green strip being used most prominently at Jenner Park for the August 2012 friendly against Cardiff, as attended by an estimated 2,000+ supporters.
