Career

Inverness-born Geddes began his professional career in 1980 with Dundee, and was part of the side who finished runners-up in the First Division and League Cup that season. In 1990 after ten years at Dens Park, Geddes moved west to Kilmarnock where in 1993 he was part of the promotion-winning side. A short spell with Raith Rovers followed in the mid-90s before spending two years in Northern Ireland with Linfield where he won the Irish League Cup in successive seasons. At the end of the decade, Geddes returned to Scotland with Brechin City, marking his twentieth and final season in professional football.

Geddes moved into management with junior side Carnoustie Panmure, adopting a player/manager role which brought the club the Scottish Junior Cup in 2003-04. In April 2005, Geddes moved into a goalkeeping coach role with Dundee United,[1] where he stayed before returning to Dundee in the same role. In April 2008, injuries forced 47-year old Geddes to appear as substitute goalkeeper in the match against Hamilton Academical. Coincidentally, Accies were also forced to name their goalkeeping coach, Brian Potter, as substitute. Potter came on in the 1-1 draw while Geddes - appearing as a trialist - remained unused.[2]

In August 2009, Geddes again had to be re-registered to sit on the bench for Dundee in their cup tie against Forfar Athletic.
