BiogBorn in Renton, Dunbartonshire Edward Garry was a forward who signed for Celtic in January 1905 from Galston.
After being briefly loaned to Ayr United he made his Celtic debut in a 1-0 home league win over Hearts on April 21st 1906. However with Celtic boasting the attacking prowess of Bennett, Quinn, McMenemy, Hamilton and Somers it was always going to be very difficult for Garry to force himself into first team contention.
He made just sporadic appearances. Consequently he made just six appearances for Celtic and scored a solitary goal.
He signed off at Celtic with a goal v Hearts in a 3-3 draw in May 1911.
He moved on to Derby County in May 1907 and would later convert into a more defensive player.
Despite lack of success at Celtic he still gained much in football as after playing he later coached in Spain, including a stint at RCD Espanyol of Spain (FC Barcelona's city rivals). He returned afterwards to the UK to work for British Celanese in Spondon near Derby.
He passed away in 1955.

Gerald Mortimer's column: Research goes on into Ted's history
Wednesday, April 08, 2009, 07:30THE recent death of Ted Garry's daughter provoked some research into the former Derby County player's coaching career in Spain.
Garry's grandson, Colin Heatley, has in his possession Garry's Second Division Championship medal from 1911-12, when the Rams pipped Chelsea for the title on goal average, with Burnley third.
He also has a larger medal from Garry's Celtic days, recording victory over Southampton in Budapest. The clubs were on summer tours in the days when British football was ahead of anything else in Europe.
Garry went to Spain after World War One and his daughter remembered being with him in Barcelona.
Her memory was sound and Colin located some photographs from 1920, signed by Real Espanyol players and dedicated to their coach and friend Edward Garry.
Peter Seddon's admirable biography of Bloomer quotes letters sent home from Spain. In one, he mentions Fred Pentland, an England international and a playing colleague from Middlesbrough.
"My old friend Teddy Garry" also rates a reference. By then, Garry was coaching in San Sebastian, almost certainly with Real Sociedad.
It is clear from this that Garry was a success in Spain but he spent the last years of his working life in Derby.
Some dates would complete the picture. Colin has been instructed to continue his search.
