‘Barnes: Poetry in Motion’ tells the story of one of football’s most iconic figures. John Barnes' story is a unique one, starting from his arrival in England from Jamaica and then being recommended to Elton John’s Watford by a cab driver who had seen him play for non-league Sudbury Court. Barnes would play only one reserve game before establishing himself as key figure in Graham Taylor’s beloved side, who won promotion to the top tier of English football before finishing runners-up to Liverpool in their first full season. It was while at Watford that Barnes launched his international career with one of England's greatest goals - a mazy run and cool finish against Brazil in the Maracana. He would go on to be capped 79 times for a country that, as John reveals, he was not initially eligible to represent. 

At Liverpool, John would establish himself as one the greatest player in the club’s history, winning the league championship and the Football Writers' Player of Year award in two of his first three seasons at the club. Off the field John found a home in Liverpool, forming an ever-stronger bond with the city - where he still lives and has raised seven children - in the aftermath of the Hillsborough.
