Donny Gary Barnard (born 1 July 1984) is a professional footballer who plays for Harlow Town.


Barnard came up through the youth ranks at Leyton Orient, and wore the #2 and previously #23 shirt. He was reduced to mainly a substitute place for much of the seasons that he was part of the Leyton Orient first team squad. He was a utility player, who never let the side down whether at right back, left back, in midfield. Donny's most memorable moment in the Orient shirt was during the 2004/05 season away at Southend, after the 1-nil victory he orchestrated the wildest team celebration for that of a club occupying 13th position in the league. The celebration became part of Orient folklore and is still mentioned to this day, players celebrating in such fashion are now referred to as 'doing the Donny'. Donny was released at the end of the 2006–07 season and signed for Grays Athletic.[1]

He was released from Grays Athletic on 26 September 2007 and signed for AFC Hornchurch in October the same year.

In November 2009 Barnard joined Tilbury and has been a regular in the first team squad.

Barnard was released by Tilbury in the summer of 2010 and joined Harlow Town in the Isthmian League Division One North.[2]
