NationalityEnglish
Weight74 kg
Height1.80 m
PositionDefender/Midfielder

Having developed through the ranks at Barnsley, Antony Kay made his Football League debut against Norwich City on the opening day of 2000-01 but was rather unfortunately substituted early on after a sending off led to a reorganisation of the line-up.

He was then hit by a number of minor injuries and didn't force himself back into the first-team picture on a regular basis until late in the season.

A stylish midfielder who is comfortable on the ball and hard-working when not in possession, he impressed in the handful of appearances he made.

He made his debut for England Under-18s against Switzerland at the end of the season.

Antony joined Tranmere Rovers in July 2007 with a two-year contract.

He joined Huddersfield Town in July 2009 with a two-year contract that was extended to June 2013 in July 2011.

Antony joined Milton Keynes Dons in August 2012 with a two-year contract that was extended to June 2015 in May 2014 and to June 2016 in June 2015.

He joined Bury in July 2016 with a two-year contract.

Antony joined Port Vale in June 2017 with a two-year contract.
