The skipper said: “I’m going to take it one season at a time.
“I’m 33 now, nearly 34. The record for the club is 621, which I should get if I play next season.
“But I’m not looking for any milestones it’s all about my body and when I know it’s time to finish, at the minute I feel confident in the fact that I can still a job at this level and I will until myself or the manager thinks any different, I want to play.”
When he does retire the former Sheffield United trainee will be a big loss to the game and will be most certainly suited for a role in management.
Barrett has already had a taste for life on the touchline as he was number Two for a couple of seasons at the Moat Ground.
He said: “I was Assistant Manager for a couple of seasons before this season so I’ve had a taste of it and you don’t realise how much time it takes out of you.
“So what I will do is probably have a break from football, recharge my batteries and if an opportunity comes around then I would have a think about it if anything came about.”
Barrett first came onto the scene for the Moatmen back in 2002 some 15-years ago and while players have come and gone a lot has stayed the same for the club.
Although the team did have to reform back in 2009 and drop into the East Midlands Counties League, which is at step 5 in the Non-league pyramid .
Barrett said: “The club has reformed as Gresley Rovers went bust and the club had to restart.
“Not a lot has changed other than that, same ground, same faces around the club, we are playing at the same level as when I first joined.
“The only thing that has changed is my age which has got older.”
Being a veteran of so many games he has played alongside and against a number of players. Some of which have gone onto feature in the Football League or had done before dropping down the divisions.
Barrett picked out some familiar faces he has shared the pitch with, including a current Premier-League winner and England International.
Barrett has also had success with the club throughout his time there and chose some of the most memorable moments he has enjoyed with the club.
He said: “There has been a few, obviously winning back to back promotions when the club first reformed to get back to the level we are at now that was one of the main highlights.
