Micky Barron started his career as a trainee at Middlesbrough. The youngster made just 2 starts and 1 substitute appearance during his 4-year stay at the Riverside. Barron joined Pools on a short-term loan in September 1996 and stayed at the Vic until then turn of the year.

Barron returned to the Boro hoping to break into the first team. Pools kept tabs on the defender and signed him up in the summer of 1997 after he was deemed surplus to requirements at the Riverside.

During his time at pools Barron has been converted from a central defender to a right back and was made club captain in 1999. Barron is one of the fans favourites and celebrated his 10-year stay at the club with a series of events including a testimonial game against Leeds.

Barron has played in over 300 games for Pools and won the Supporters' Player of the Year in his first 2 seasons at the Vic. Barron is not known for his goal scoring ability having scored just 4 goals during his time with the club. After 2 injury ravaged seasons Barron played a key role in Pools finishing League Two runners-up in 2007.

Barron was appointed youth team coach in January 2008 and he then retired from playing in the summer to concentrate on his coaching duties. He led his side to the FA Youth Cup fourth round in the 09/10 season, narrowly losing out to an experienced Watford side.

The departure of Chris Turner in August 2010 saw Mick Wadsworth take over as manager and Barron then moved to a new role as reserve team manager. Then, when Wadsworth was dismissed in December 2011, Barron took over as caretaker manager alongside fellow coach Ritchie Humphreys.
