Sunderland born centre forward Barney Travers played junior football for Sunderland Co-operative Wednesday in 1911 and Oak Villa in 1912 joining New Lambton Star in 1913 and Sunderland West End in 1914. But it was only after the conclusion of the First World War that he joined hometown First Division club Sunderland in 1919, making his Football League debut against Aston Villa that August at Roker Park and scoring the winner in a 2-1 victory. His 23 goals in his debut season saw him finish only behind Charlie Buchan in the club’s scoring charts and included hat-tricks against Notts County and eventual League Champions West Bromwich Albion. But after 28 goals in 63 appearances for The Rokerites, he was transferred to Fulham in February 1921, where he soon found himself amongst the goals hitting 8 goals in his first 8 games, and scoring a hat-trick against Hull City in September 1921. But an injury in March 1922 forced his premature retirement from football after 29 goals in 49 appearances for The Cottagers.
