Sad News - David Barr Former DWPC coach
Former Dunfermline Waterpolo Club coach David Barr passed away on Saturday following a recent stroke.
David was a Motherwell man and started his playing career there with considerable success. His physical education career took him south where he played with Lytham, Heath and Sutton & Cheam. He gained international recognition with Scotland and Great Britain as well as Royal Air Force and Combined Services. He started his coaching career with Sutton & Cheam and went on to coach British Universities and Great Britain before becoming SASA Director of Water Polo.
In 1982 Dunfermline WPC was founded and managed to lure David out of retirement as Club Coaching Adviser. He coached the club to our first entry into the ASA Cup in the early 80's and travelled with the club to our first trip to Malta. This trip established the team which went on to win the Premier League and Scottish Cup on several occasions before he stepped down in 1987. David wrote several books and articles on water polo as well as running courses for SASA, ASA and GB. He would have been 85 next month
Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
Update : Memorial Service is on Tuesday 26th February at 12.30pm in Newport on Tay Church. There is a private family burial.
