Barrie Hole, a former Wales, Swansea and Cardiff City player, has died aged 76.

Swansea born Barrie hailed from a footballing family - his father had been a professional player for Swansea Town before World War II and his brothers Colin and Alan also played for their home town club.

But it was to Cardiff City that Barrie's early allegiances lay: he made his league debut for the Bluebirds as a 17 year old in 1959-60 when Cardiff gained promotion to the first division.

He was also a Welsh Cup winner with Cardiff City on two occasions - in 1964 and 1965 - a club where he made 211 appearances and scored 16 goals.

It was while playing for Cardiff that he gained his first of 30 Welsh caps, before being signed up by Blackburn Rovers in 1966 for 40,000.

He also had a stint at Aston Villa in the late sixties, before returning to his home town in 1970.

He joined Swansea for 20,000, playing for the club for a couple of years before retiring in 1972.

But it was for his contribution to the Wales team of the sixties and early seventies that he might be remembered most. He made his debut against Northern Ireland in 1963, with his final appearance coming in a 1971 match with Romania.

His family went on to run a newsagents in the city.
