Quite tall and solidly built at 193cm and 90kg Barry Standfield was a highly effective and versatile key position player for most of his time with Footscray which spanned the years 1990 to 1996. Only in his final season did he fall out of favour, and this led to his being traded to Adelaide where he started well before losing both form and his place in the senior team. The Bulldogs phase of his career saw him play 98 AFL games and kick 38 goals before adding 13 games and 23 goals for the Crows. He played for Sturt when not selected for Adelaide.

Both prior to and after his AFL career Standfield played for Fish Creek. In 2001 he won the Peter Moore Medal as best and fairest in the Alberton Football League.
