Earl Delisser Barrett (born
April 28, 1967in Rochdale, Lancashire) is a former English footballer, most famous for his stints with Everton, Oldham Athletic, Aston Villa, Sheffield Wednesday and Manchester City. He played mainly at right back though could also adapt to a central defensive role. He also gained three England caps whilst playing at Oldham and Aston Villa.

League Cupbeating Manchester United3-1 at Wembley with Earl playing the full 90 minutes. He was bought by Evertonmidway through the next season and although they won the FA Cupin May of 1995, Barrett had already been cup tied(at Aston Villa) meaning he could not claim a winners medal.
