Barry Dyer

Polytechnic FC are saddened to learn of the recent passing of club Vice President Barry Albin-Dyer.

Barry was a Poly player for many years and captained the 2nd team at one stage.  He is remembered as a strong and skilful centre-forward and a popular presence at the club.

Away from the Poly, Barry was a prominent businessman and philanthropist in his local community of Bermondsey and Rotherhithe.  He also authored several books, one of which was made into the ITV serial “Don’t Drop the Coffin” several years ago.
