Colin I was an apprentice with Colin at Hawker Siddely Woodford as it was then. We used to play football on the airfield at lunch time and one day he came in work and said he had signed for City. I thought he was having me on as I am a big City fan but not long after he was running out at Maine Road, I couldn't believe it.

Barrett, Colin I lived on the same road as Colin in the 60/70’s
My mate Graham lived next door to Colin.
I can remember having a kick about with Colin outside his parents home (we were about 10 years old - so it was roughly 1972)

Barrett, Colin I played in the same team as Colin at Cheadle Heath Nomads before leaving for Australia in 1972. The one thing that I remembered most about him was the distance he could throw a ball from a throw in regularly clearing the penalty spot very happy memories.

Barrett, Colin I was a Forest fan in the late 70s and found out from someone that Colin Barrett lived in the same village as me, Southwell. Having discovered his house my friend and I summoned up the courage to knock on the door and ask for his autograph. His wife and answered and was very amused. Colin came to the door and signed our posters even though, as he pointed out, he wasn't on them. I have loved him ever since for that simple act of kindness!
