Gareth Whalley (born 19 December 1973) is an English-born Irish footballer who qualified to play for the Republic of Ireland under the parentage rule.


Whalley was involved in a contractual dispute over a £50,000 appearance bonus,[1] and had his contract cancelled by the club, signing for Wigan Athletic in September 2004.[2][3]

At international level, Whalley was included in a number of Republic of Ireland senior squads under Mick McCarthy[4] but never won a full cap. He was capped at "B" international level.[5]

He was appointed as an assistant coach for Manchester City under-18 team in July 2014.[6]
