PositionGoalkeeper

The son of Preston North End stalwart keeper Alan Kelly, Gary Kelly maintained the family goalkeeping tradition with his brother Alan junior. He took over from Martin Thomas on Tyneside then gave lengthy service to Bury.

This veteran keeper with over 200 appearances for Oldham Athletic was again a near ever-present in 2000-01 and continued to perform capably for the Latics as a spell of seven clean sheets in 14 Second Division games at the turn of the year clearly showed. He is the older brother of Blackburn 'keeper Alan Kelly.

After going on the transfer list in October 2002, Gary's contact at Oldham was cancelled by mutual consent the following month. He joined Northwich Victoria on a monthly contract before joining Sheffield Uniyed on non-contract-terms.
