Lyons, Barry Barry Lyons is a legend in our house! My dad Joe Brown lived a couple of doors down from Barry in Warren Terrace and knew Barry as a young boy. He followed his career and watch him play for Nottingham Forest. On one occasion my dad took my brother and a mini bus full of local boys to see Notts forest play and Barry recognised my dad in the crowd and went up to him to say hello, something my brother has never forgot. My dad has lots of memories about Barry and his family and regards Barry's footballing skills as excellent. A real legend.
