Garry Stanley (born 4 March 1954 in Burton upon Trent) is a former midfielder who was at Chelsea from 1971-1979.

Chelsea career

Stanley started his career with Chelsea, where he turned professional in 1971 but didn't make his league debut until 16 August 1975, at the age of 21, in a 2-1 away defeat to Sunderland in the Second Division. He helped the club to promotion to the First Division in the 1976-77 season, and remained with Chelsea until their relegation in 1979, when, after a summer in the North American Soccer League with Fort Lauderdale Strikers, he joined Everton for a fee of £300,000.

After Chelsea

He failed to show his Chelsea form with Everton, and moved on to Swansea City two years later for £150,000. Stanley won the Welsh Cup twice with Swansea, in 1982 and 1983, before spending two years with Portsmouth and three seasons in the Major Indoor Soccer League with the Wichita Wings. He returned to England in 1988 and spent a season with Bristol City before moving into non-league football with Waterlooville. After retiring as a player he worked for NTI Communications and latterly as a representative for a pharmaceutical company.
