He began with Wombwell, before signing for Doncaster Rovers in January 1949, where he scored six goals in thirteen appearances, and also made two appearances in the F.A. Cup, without scoring, before slipping into Non-League football with Midland League side Frickley Colliery at the end of the 1949-50 season. Barritt was an engineer who made cutting tools and was given a second chance at League football by United asa part-timer when they paid 500 in April 1951 to bring him to Elland Road. Leeds were looking for a replacement for Len Browning but, after trying Roy Kirk and Ron Barritt, they finally opted for Frank Fidler to bolster the attack with Ray Iggleden and Don Mills. He left for York City of the Third Division North in June 1952, where he made five League appearances, before he retired in June 1953. He died in 2004.
