After playing 135 games for Footscray between 1969 and 1975, Barry Round made his debut in the red and white in 1976. He would go on to play 193 games and kick 157 goals for the Swans, as a ruckman and centre half-forward. He was captain of the Club from 1980 to 1984, and significantly, he was the first captain of the Swans in Sydney. There was a widely held view that without his support, the move to Sydney may never have occurred. He won the Brownlow Medal in 1981 – a year in which he also won his second Swans Best and Fairest award, also having been named Club Champion in 1979. Named in the ruck in the Swans Team of the Century, Barry was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 2001. The Sydney Swans’ Best Clubman award which is presented at the Club Champion dinner each year is named in recognition of his contribution to the Club.
