Geoffrey Robert Barnsley (born 9 December 1935) is an English former professional footballer who played in the Football League as a goalkeeper for West Bromwich Albion, Plymouth Argyle, Norwich City and Torquay United. He was born in Bilston.

Barnsley began his career as a junior at West Bromwich Albion, turning professional in December 1952, with his only league appearance for the Baggies coming in the 1954 55 season. In June 1957 he moved to Plymouth Argyle, playing 131 league games before moving to Norwich City for a fee of £2,000 in May 1961. After only eight league games for Norwich, he returned to Devon, signing for Torquay United in December 1962 as understudy to Torquay goalkeeper Terry Adlington. Adlington was an ever-present in the 1962 63 season, Barnsley having to wait until September 1963 for his Torquay debut, a 1 0 victory at home to Rochdale. He made just six appearances for Torquay and subsequently left for non-league Dudley Town.
