Nicholas "Nicky" Devlin (born 17 October 1993, Glasgow) is a Scottish professional footballer who currently captains Ayr United. He plays as a right-sided full-back.

Career[edit]

Devlin signed for Dumbarton in the summer of 2009, and broke into the first team during the 2010–11 season.

Devlin signed a pre-contract agreement with SPL side Motherwell in March 2011. As part of the deal, Jordan Halsman's loan deal at Dumbarton was extended until the end of the season,[1] and Motherwell played a pre-season friendly against Dumbarton, which Motherwell won 5–0. Devlin officially joined on 1 July 2011.

Devlin was injured for most of the 2011–12 season, but came back at the start of 2012 and turned in some excellent performances for the Motherwell under-19 team. On 29 March 2012, Devlin joined Stenhousemuir on loan until the end of the season where he was awarded the Young Player of the Month award for April, his first full month at the club.[2]

On 17 August 2012, Devlin re-joined Dumbarton on loan until January.[3] That was then extended for a further twenty-eight days.[4]

On 15 March 2013, Devlin was again farmed out on loan, re-joining Stenhousemuir till the end of the season.[5] On 20 May 2013, after not making a single first-team appearance for Motherwell, Devlin was released by the club.[6]

Upon being released by Motherwell, he was quickly signed on a permanent contract by Stenhousemuir, a team who he had two previous loan spells with, for the 2013–14 season.[7] At the end of the season, he was amongst the players released by the club.[8]

In July 2014, Devlin signed for Ayr United.[9] He was made club captain on May 19th 2015.[10]
