It was a fitting opponent for Barry to set the record against, as the veteran spent time with Brighton as a youth player before moving to Aston Villa in 1997. 

In his lengthy Premier League career, Barry represented Villa, Manchester City and Everton before moving to the Baggies prior to the 2017-18 season.
