Playing career[edit]

Born in Hannover, West Germany,[1] Galloway played in English non-league football at Sutton United, before moving into the Football League with Crystal Palace in 1984.[3] He spent two seasons with Palace – which included a loan spell at Cambridge United[4] – before joining non-league Maidstone United in 1986. He was brought to the Umeå-based club Tegs SK for the 1987 season in Sweden.[5] His goalscoring ability earned him a contract with Djurgårdens IF – where he stayed for two seasons which included a loan spell in Scotland with St Mirren.[6] In 1990, he returned to Umeå to help local club Umeå FC rise in the Swedish football league.[7]

Coaching career[edit]

Galloway has coached Umeå FC,[8] and coached Djurgårdens IF as assistant to Andrée Jeglertz in the 2009 season.[9]

In 2010, he became head coach for Umeå Södra.[10]
