Gary Kelly played his entire professional career with Leeds United. He was at Elland Road for 16 years after first coming over from Home Farm 22 years ago in July 1991. His distinguished tour of duty featured 531 appearances for the Whites, making him the eighth highest-ever club appearance maker. He is sandwiched between fellow Irishman and Home Farm product Johnny Giles, in ninth place with 523 appearances and Eddie Gray, who played 561 times for the Whites. That Kelly managed that feat after coming to the club as an aspiring young striker, before being converted to a right-back of some repute, is tribute to his sheer professionalism and dedication and above all dependability.
