Swans saddened by passing of Barrie Hole

1st April 2019

Swansea City are saddened to learn of the passing of former player Barrie Hole at the age of 76.

Barrie played two seasons for the Swans between 1970 and 1972, making 94 appearances and scoring five goals for his hometown club.

The son of Billy - who had represented the Swans prior to the Second World War - Barrie's brothers Alan and Colin also had spells with the club.

Barrie won 30 caps for Wales during his career, making his debut against Northern Ireland in 1963 and his final appearance against Romania in 1970.

A cultured wing-half or inside forward, Barrie also had spells with Cardiff City, Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers.

Everyone at Swansea City sends their sincere condolences to Barrie's family at this difficult time.
