Barron Years In America

The Kids Are All Right – Jim

Jim Barron was in the shadow of Malcolm Finlayson and Fred Davies when Wolves went on their long 1963 tour of the United States and Canada a few months before the club handed him his Football League debut. He had then moved on to Chelsea and Oxford when they went back to win two lengthy tournaments in America towards the end of the decade and narrowly missed out on crossing the Atlantic with them when recruited by John Barnwell to Molineux just after the club played a one-off friendly in Jacksonville.
