James Grady (born 14 March 1971 in Paisley) is a Scottish footballer who has spent the majority of his career in the top two divisions in Scottish football. He plays as a striker, currently player/manager for Greenock Morton in the First Division.

Grady started in the junior ranks with Barrhead side Arthurlie, before turning senior with Clydebank. After three seasons at Kilbowie, Grady got a move to Dundee, where stayed for another three seasons. Another spell of three seasons was spent at Ayr United, before a season each at Partick Thistle and Partick Thistle.

He then played at Tannadice Park with Dundee United, for three seasons before spending a year winning the First Division title with the ill-fated Gretna. A short spell at Hamilton Academical ended with a loan spell at Morton, which was turned permanent, before he was made the player-manager after Davie Irons was removed from his post.

Playing career

Grady has played in Scotland for his entire career.

After a spell in junior football with Arthurlie, he moved to former senior outfit Clydebank, who now play junior before spending three seasons with Dundee. A further three years were spent with Ayr United, before a prolific season in the SPL with Partick Thistle saw him finish the top Scottish scorer with 15 goals.

An unproductive season with Dundee United followed, in which he scored just twice, but Grady rediscovered his scoring touch in 2005 with Gretna. On 28 April 2007, he scored an injury-time winner against Ross County to secure Gretna's promotion to the SPL as First Division champions.

He joined Hamilton Academical on 31 January 2008.[1] Grady scored his first goal for the Accies against Queen of the South on 1 March. His only other goal for Accies was against Clyde in a 3–1 win in the Scottish League Cup.[2]

Grady joined Greenock Morton on an emergency loan (up to 93 days) on 17 October 2008.[3]

Grady scored on his debut for Morton, in a 1–0 home victory over Clyde on 18 October 2008, to give the Cappielow club their first league victory since beating Partick Thistle on the last day of the previous season.[4] This goal was Grady's 100th league goal of his career.

Grady was released by Hamilton on 2 January 2009[5], and signed a permanent deal until the end of the season at Morton.[6]

The Daily Record stated that Grady was offered a further contract until January 2010, via its Soccer Shorts section.

Coaching career

After the sacking of Davie Irons, Grady was made caretaker manager of Greenock Morton alongside Allan McManus.[7]

They were appointed permanently (this time with McManus as his assistant) on Halloween 2009.[8]
