Henry McCully is a retired Scottish-American soccer forward. A native of Scotland, McCully spent most of his career in the New England area of the United States. He earned two caps, scoring one goal, with the United States in 1975.



McCully played with the Hartford Italian-American Stars of the National Soccer League of Connecticut for three seasons. In 1967, the Stars won the league title, then went on to win the U.S. Amateur Cup. In 1973, the New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League signed McCully. He played eight games, scoring no goals that season. The next season, he moved to the Rhode Island Oceaneers of the American Soccer League. That season, the Oceaneers took the ASL title with a win over the New York Apollo. The next year, McCully was back in the NASL, this time with the Hartford Bicentennials. He spent the 1975 and 1976 seasons in Hartford, playing thirty-seven games and scoring six goals. The team renamed itself the Connecticut Bicentennials in 1977. That season, McCully scored no goals in seventeen games. At the end of the 1977 season, the team moved to Oakland, California. McCully did not make that move, but instead moved to the Memphis Rogues for the 1978 and 1979 seasons. He played in forty-nine games, scoring nine goals. At the end of the 1979 NASL season, McCully left the NASL and made one final move, to the Hartford Hellions of Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) for the 1979-1980 season. At the end of that season, he retired from playing professionally.
