The decision was made via a poll voted for by fans and the pair were delighted to receive their accolades.
Barron, 34, told the club website: "It is definitely an honour to be picked and I am quite proud really."
Team-mate Humphreys added: "To be voted for and get a street named after me makes me very proud and privileged."
Humphreys has been rewarded for his sporting contributions before when he met the Queen in January 2007 but is humble about his achievements.
He said: "I have always been happy with going into work, playing games and the successful times outweigh the disappointment.
"Like I have said in the past, I have never wanted to be anywhere else during my time here and I just really do enjoy doing my job and getting a little bit of success doing it."
