Club career

Early career

Born in Baldoyle, Dublin, Brady attended Pobalscoil Neasáin and was part of the under-16 all-Ireland champion team. He was spotted by Manchester United scouts while playing for St. Kevin's Boys, and joined the club's academy shortly after his 16th birthday in January 2008; he made his first appearance for Manchester United in an under-18s match against Liverpool on 19 January 2008.[2] His reserve team debut came just two months later, in a 3–1 win over Newcastle United.[3] In July 2008, Brady signed on as an academy scholar, and cemented his place in the under-18s throughout the following two seasons, as well as playing for the Reserves. In the 2010–11 season, Brady graduated to the Reserve team on a permanent basis, and was also named as an unused substitute for the first-team's League Cup Fourth Round win at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on 26 October 2010.[4] Brady made his only appearance for Manchester United on 26 September 2012, coming on as an 86th-minute substitute for Alexander Büttner in a 2–1 victory over Newcastle United in the Football League Cup Third Round.[5]

On 19 July 2011, Manchester United loaned Brady to Championship club Hull City until 31 December.[6] He made his debut in the first game of the season on 5 August 2011 at the KC Stadium in a 1–0 defeat to Blackpool.[7] He scored his first competitive goal for the Tigers in a 1–0 win against Reading at the KC Stadium on 27 August 2011.[8] The loan was extended until the end of the 2011–12 season on 5 January 2012.[9] On 21 January 2012, Brady scored in their 1–0 win against Reading at the Madejski Stadium.[10]

2012–13

On 5 November 2012, Manchester United loaned Brady to Hull City until 2 January 2013.[11] He came off the bench the following day against Wolverhampton Wanderers as a replacement for Liam Rosenior.[12] Brady scored his first goal since returning to Hull on 8 December 2012 against Watford; he scored with a 25-yard free-kick that went in off the crossbar, making it 2–0 to Hull.[13] On 8 January 2013, Brady was signed by Hull on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee.[14]

2013–14

Brady scored a first half penalty in Hull's opening home Premier League game on 24 August 2013, giving them a 1–0 win against Norwich City.[15] He went on to score two more goals in the Premier League in September 2013. He then underwent two separate groin operations which made him miss most of the rest of the season.[16]

2014–15

Brady scored 3 goals during the 2014–15 campaign including 2 goals in the second leg of the Europa League play-off round tie against Belgian Pro League side K.S.C. Lokeren on 28 August 2014.
