Career[edit]

Brighton & Hove Albion[edit]

Barclay played regularly for Brighton U23's and made a number of appearances for the Sussex club in the Premier League 2 league in the last few seasons. The former Manchester City youth player was included in Chris Hughton's 25 man squad for the 2018–19 Premier League season.[3] He made his debut for Brighton on 28 August 2018, in the EFL Cup at home against Southampton where he played the full match in a 1–0 loss against their south coast rivals.[4]

He was released from Brighton at the end of the 2018–19 season.[citation needed]

Loan to Notts County[edit]

On 4 January 2019, Barclay joined Notts County on loan until the end of the season.[5] Barclay made his Notts County debut a day after joining the club in a League Two fixture away against Essex club Colchester United where it eventually finished 3–3 in what also happened to be his first ever league match.[6] On 19 April 2019 Barclay scored his first ever professional goal scoring in the 90+4 minute in a 2–1 home defeat to MK Dons.[7] In the next match which was away to Crawley Barclay was sent off for violent conduct. He was sent off at 1–1, the scoreline it finished.[8] As a result of the suspension he would miss the final two games of the season where Notts County were relegated after a 3–1 away defeat to Swindon Town on the last game of the season.[9]

Accrington Stanley[edit]

On 16 July 2019 he joined Accrington Stanley.[10]
