Barry retires at Brixham
 Women's Football News 21 May 2013
Barry retires at Brixham - 21 May 2013 - Women's Football News19th May 2013 saw the end of an era when Barry Hayward took his leave as manager of Brixham Villa Ladies in Devon. 
Barry, who had managed various teams through the 80s and 90s, including Torquay United Ladies, took over at the newly formed Stoke Gabriel Ladies in 1997 and stayed at the helm through name changes to Paignton Town, Galmpton United and, in 2008, to Brixham Villa.
He has decided to retire from the sharp end of team management, although he will remain on the committee in the Villa Chair. Over the years at the club over 120 players, including Barry's wife, Lee, have played in Barry's teams.
Managing the Hayward way has included a friendly welcome to players of all abilities, sometimes accompanied by the necessity of very basic training for women who have never kicked a football before. His aim was for women to enjoy the sport of football, and his teams have won fair play awards on a number of occasions.
His successors, Sarah Webster and Luke McFarlane, have been promoted from within the Brixham Villa club, but Barry will be a hard act to follow.
His style was never aggressive, preferring the power of silence to the "hairdryer" treatment when a point had to be made, and he approached matches with a sense of humour. So, it was perhaps inevitable that the team would choose to mark the Guv'nor's final match with an informal photocall, featuring one of his regular pieces of advice!
