Marc David Goodfellow (born 20 September 1981) is a professional footballer who currently plays for Burton Albion.


Playing career

Marc started his playing career with Stoke City in 2000, the following year he found himself in Iceland with ÍB Vestmannaeyjar, the Icelandic connection with the Potteries club being strong at the time. Upon his return he manage to appear fairly regular for the Potters, but after four years at the Britannia Stadium he transferred to Bristol City for £50,000. He did not feature heavily at Ashton Gate and instead had loan spells out to Colchester United and Port Vale in 2004.[1]

In late 2004 Swansea's manager Kenny Jackett was on the lookout for a quality winger,[2] Goodfellow meanwhile was prepared to go out on a third loan spell.[3] Jackett managed to persuade City to allow Goodfellow to join the Swans on loan in November 2004.[4] He impressed at the Welsh club and his loan spell was extended the following month.[5] However he was quickly recalled to Ashton Gate after a spate of injuries at the Bristol club,[6] soon after Swansea attempted to buy Goodfellow off City.[7] However City manager Brian Tinnion informed Goodfellow he still had a future at the club.[8] Tinnion was expecting at least what they paid Stoke for him, Swansea were unable to comply.[9] In May 2005 though, the club again admitted their interest in the young winger,[10] the following month they finally got their man, ending months of speculation.[11] Goodfellow said he was delighted with the move and that his "heart was always set on Swansea".[12]

Following 13 appearances in the 2005-06 season, Goodfellow left League One Swansea to join Grimsby Town in February 2006.[13]

In the summer of 2006 Goodfellow joined Bury on a free transfer,[14] before leaving in November 2006. He signed for Burton Albion in January 2007.[15] Goodfellow had recently joined Blue Square Premier side Barrow on a months loan
