Barry Lineker

Everybody at Leicester Market was saddened to hear of the passing of one of the Market’s much-loved traders, Barry Lineker.

Barry was a familiar face on Leicester Market for decades as he manned Lineker’s Fruit and Veg stall – a stall which achieved worldwide fame as his son, Gary, became a footballing superstar for Leicester City, Everton, Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur and England.

Happy, friendly and very popular, Barry’s smile was always on show for those popping down for fruit and veg – or just a chat.

Even after Barry sold the stall, the name Lineker’s remained high and proud over the stall – such was the regard that the man was held.

All of the thoughts and sympathies of everyone at Leicester Market is with Barry’s friends and family at this sad time.
