PositionDefender/Midfielder/Forward

Having joined Nottingham Forest on a free transfer during the close season, Gary went on to feature regularly for the First Division club in 2000-01 without ever really establishing himself in any one role.

He was initially used as a striker but failed to make much impact and went on to appear in almost every outfield position during the season, although he seemed most comfortable either in midfield or at the back where his strength in the tackle could be used to good effect.

After a month's loan, Gary returned to Tranmere Rovers in September 2002 on a three-year contract.

Gary joined Grimsby Town in July 2005 with a two-year contract that was extended to June 2008 in May 2007.
