Garry Brady (born 7 September 1976 in Glasgow) is a Scottish footballer who last played for Scottish League One club Brechin City.

Career[edit]

Brady began his professional career with Tottenham Hotspur in 1993, making around a dozen appearances before joining Newcastle United in 1998 in a £650,000 deal. Lauded as "one of the brightest prospects in British football" at the time,[1] Brady made a similar number of appearances at St James' Park but his time on Tyneside was blighted with a serious ankle injury limiting his opportunities. The Scottish under-18 international winger moved with Des Hamilton to Norwich on loan in March 2000, to the end of the 1999–2000 season. On 4 September 2000, Brady returned to Carrow Road on a two-month loan, with a special entitlement allowing him to play in League Cup matches. His loan period expired on 26 October 2000 with Norwich declining to make the move permanent. Brady was released by Newcastle in January 2001 and subsequently joined Portsmouth on trial on 12 February 2001 before signing a permanent deal.

Falling out of favour, Brady joined Scottish side Kilmarnock on trial at the end of January 2002 but returned to Portsmouth to make a four league appearances that season. In July 2002, he joined Walsall on trial and returned to Scotland the following month on trial with Dundee. This move became permanent during the first week of September 2002. In mid-June 2006, after four years at Dens Park, Brady agreed terms with Scottish Premier League newcomers St Mirren, having turned down a request from Dundee – like several other players – to accept a wage cut. In June 2011 he joined Brechin City. He scored his first and so far only goal for Brechin in a 3-1 defeat to Cowdenbeath.[2] At the end of the 2012-13 season Brechin announced that Brady was amongst the players being released.[3]

His younger brother Darren is also a footballer.
