Craig Barr (born March 29, 1987 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish footballer who currently plays for Queen of the South.




Early years

Barr hails from Edinburgh but moved south as a 16-year-old to join Blackburn Rovers and spent almost three years with the Lancashire club.


Barr played in the early part of his career with Gretna signing for the club when they were bankrolled by Brooks Mileson. In 47 league appearances for Gretna Barr scored 5 goals.

Mileson pulled the plug on the clubs cashflow when his health deteriorated. The club thus became financially stricken and went into administration. Administrators for Gretna laid off their last 40 staff including Barr on 19 May 2008.[1]

Queen of the South

Barr signed a two year contract with Dumfries based Scottish First Division side Queen of the South on 26 June 2008.[2]

Said Craig just after signing, "I'm really looking forward to the move. Queens are coming off the back of a fantastic season and I'm excited at the prospect of playing for the Scottish Cup finalists. I know big Neilly MacFarlane, Jamie McQuilken and 'Tosher' from my time at Gretna and also have a lot of respect for ex-Queens player, big Derek Townsley, who I also know well".
