Christopher David Fry (born 23 October 1969 in Cardiff) is a Welsh former professional footballer.

Career[edit]

Fry began his career at his hometown club Cardiff City, making his debut at the end of the 1988–89 season. Over the next few years, despite playing over 50 times, he struggled to establish himself in the side and more than half of his appearances were as a substitute, with his only goal for the club scored during the 1989–90 season in a 2–2 draw with Brentford.[1] In August 1991 he was allowed to leave the club to sign for Hereford United. He spent just over two season at the club, playing over 100 times, when he was signed by Colchester United where he went on to become an established regular in the side, including winning the clubs player of the year award in the 1996–97 season.

Fry left Colchester in 1997 and spent two years at Exeter City before dropping out of league football with spells at Welsh sides Barry Town, Haverfordwest County and Llanelli.
