Simon Ferry (born 11 January 1988 in Dundee, Scotland) is a Scottish professional footballer currently playing for Swindon Town on loan from Celtic.


Club career



Having played for the Celtic youth teams, Ferry signed a 4 and a half year professional contract with the club in January 2006.[1] He was part of the team that won the Under-19 League and Cup double in 2006 and was among a number of players named, by coach Willie McStay, as likely to progress to the first team.[2]

A few months later Ferry made his first-team debut on a pre-season tour of Poland,[3] playing against Wisła Kraków and Legia Warsaw.[4][5]

His professional development was curtailed by injury problems sustained in the 2006–07 season, which resulted in him missing almost three years of football club football. He returned to the Celtic first team squad in February 2009,[6][3] and featured in a 2–0 win in a Wembley Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur on 26 July 2009.

Swindon Town

On 27 August 2009, Ferry joined Swindon Town on loan until January 2010 along with Celtic teammate Ben Hutchinson.[7] He made his debut for Swindon Town on 29 August 2009, receiving the Clubs Man of the Match award in a 2-1 victory against Southend United.

On 26 November, it was announced that a deal had been agreed with parent club Celtic to extend the loan until the end of the season.[8]

International career

In July 2006, Ferry played for Scotland at the 2006 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship. The Scottish team reached the final, in which Ferry played, but they lost to Spain.[9] Due to injury he missed the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
