Jorge Sebastián Barclay (born 2 January 1978) is a former Argentine footballer who played for clubs of Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, Venezuela and Canada.


Born in La Plata (Buenos Aires), Barclay started playing football with the youth teams of local side Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata.[1] The forward made his senior debut for Gimnasia in the 1998 Copa CONMEBOL,[2] and made his Primera División Argentina debut entering as a second half substitute against Club Atlético Lanús on 18 June 1999.[3][4] He went on a six-month loan to Club Atlético Tigre in 2000,[5] and left Gimnasia in 2001 after making only eight Primera División appearances for the club.[4]

Barclay scored 19 goals for newly promoted Chilean Primera División side Deportes Temuco in 2002, before signing for A-League club Toronto Lynx in 2003.[6] Barclay scored a goal in his debut for the Lynx, a 2–0 victory over the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on 3 May 2003.[7]

After his first stint with Toronto, Barclay joined Venezuelan second-tier club Deportivo Italchacao and Guatemalan club Deportivo Marquense.[8]
