Barney Carr was a classy and extremely effective centreman who played briefly for Prahran before joining St Kilda in 1921. His use of the ball was impeccable, and he was universally regarded as one of the finest players of his era. He played 130 VFL games for the Saints between 1921 and 1929, and was a VFL representative player on nine occasions. Club best and fairest awards were only intermittently awarded at St Kilda during the 1920s, but Carr won one in his second season. He also captained the Saints briefly in 1925.
