Meshach Wade (born 23 January 1973) is a retired Bermudian football player.

Club career[edit]

Wade played two seasons for Hereford United, alongside compatriot Kentoine Jennings,[1] in the English Football League before returning to PHC Zebras in Bermuda in 1993. He had a few seasons in US Indoor soccer with Harrisburg Heat[2] alongside another Bermudian, David Bascome, and then played for Southampton Rangers and became player/coach at Hamilton Parish[3] and player/coach at Dandy Town Hornets F.C. in summer 2008.[4]

He was replaced as Hornets' coach after suffering career-threatening injuries in a bike accident in February 2009.[5]

International career[edit]

A national team stalwart for almost 20 years, Wade made his debut for Bermuda in the sensational 1991 friendly win against the United States and has earned over 30 caps, scoring 3 goals. He has represented his country in 18 FIFA World Cup qualification matches.[6]

His final international match was a June 2008 World Cup qualification match against Trinidad and Tobago.
