Timeline of Tony Kelly


Kelly suffered with a severe gambling addiction during his career, and ran up debts of £300,000 before being declared bankrupt. He wrote a book, largely about his addiction and his career, entitled Red Card in 2013. His brother Errington was also a professional footballer.


Kelly joined Bury in September 1993 playing 37 times in 1993–94 scoring eight goals and then helped the “Shakers” reach the Third Division play-offs in 1995 losing 2–0 to Chesterfield in the final. He then signed for Leyton Orient for a fee of £40,000 and he played in 38 matches in 1995–96 as the Os finished in 21st position. In 1996–97 he fell out with manager Pat Holland and was sent out on loan to Colchester United for whom he made three appearances. On his return to Brisbane Road Kelly turned down the chance to go on loan to Watford and went on to play 11 times for Orient in 1996–97.


Macari’s intense fitness sessions worked well with Kelly who made his biggest contribution in a Stoke shirt on 25 September 1991 when he scored a late equaliser in a 2–2 draw with Liverpool in the League Cup at Anfield. However his joy soon turned to despair as in the second leg a Kelly backpass was intercepted by Ian Rush and Liverpool went on to win 3–2. Stoke pushed for promotion in 1991–92 and they reached the play-offs where they lost to Stockport County. Three days later the two sides met again this time in the Football League Trophy final at Wembley Stadium a Mark Stein goal earning Stoke a 1–0 win. He played nine times in 1992–93 as Stoke won the Second Division title. His gambling addiction caused him to lose his form and after failing to play in 1993–94 Macari decided to move Kelly on. Whilst out of the side he spent time out on loan at Hull City (making six appearances scoring once) and Cardiff City (making five appearances scoring once).


He joined Stoke City in January 1990 and at the Victoria Ground Kelly was never a regular but did play in the 1992 Football League Trophy Final victory over Stockport County. After loan spells at Hull City and Cardiff City he signed permanently with Bury and later played with Leyton Orient, Colchester United, Falkirk and made a return to St Albans City before ending his career at Harlow Town. Throughout his career Kelly struggled with a gambling addiction and ran up debts of over £300,000.

Kelly joined Stoke in January 1990 with the team struggling at the foot of the Second Division. After he moved to Stoke-on-Trent from London he was shown around the Victoria Ground and was given free accommodation at a local hotel and he was also given a £10,000 signing on fee but he spent most of it gambling. He made his debut for Stoke in the Potteries derby against Port Vale on 3 February 1990 where he played 70 minutes in a goalless draw at Vale Park. In all he made nine appearances in 1989–90 as Stoke dropped into the Third Division. In 1990–91 Kelly struggled to become a regular in the side under Alan Ball with most of his appearances coming off the substitute bench. Ball was sacked by Stoke in February 1991 and was replaced by Lou Macari in June 1991.


Gimonäs is based in the city of Umeå and Kelly travelled there with the intentions of attracting the attentions of top-flight Swedish teams and teams back in England. Errington also managed to make the move to Gimonäs and the club under the management of Anders Johansson had ambitions to aim for promotion to the Allsvenskan. However results were inconsistent and they ended the season in 6th position. With his loan spell coming to an end St Albans decided against extended it and so Kelly returned to England in November 1989. On his return to London, Kelly resumed his job at Eastern Electricity and also continued to go to betting shops and play for St Albans City.


He also began playing for Dulwich Hamlet whose first-team included Alan Pardew, Andy Gray and Paul Harding but Mel soon left for Corinthian-Casuals. It was at this time Kelly began to get involved with gambling and would soon become an addiction. In January 1987 he moved in with his sister, Pat in Enfield and signed for Corinthian-Casuals. On his 21st birthday Kelly was playing in an away match where he was sent-off for two bookable offences and in rage Kelly pushed the referee to the ground. Kelly was given a nine-month ban by the FA and he left Corinthian-Casuals and also decided to change his name from Nyrere to Tony.

He began playing with Cheshunt where he finished the 1987–88 season as top-scorer and also changed his name again this time to Nyrere Anthony Okpara Kelly. He then had a brief spell with Enfield Town before joining St Albans City. By now his brother Errington had moved to Sweden to play for Grebbestads IF and after Kelly went over to visit him he began writing to Swedish clubs’s offering them his services. To his surprise St Albans received a loan offer from Swedish Second Division side Gimonäs CK which Kelly quickly accepted.


After returning to Coventry, Kelly contacted local non-league sides Nuneaton Borough and Bedworth United in the hope of getting the chance to play football again and after a short trial he joined Nuneaton Borough. Under the management of Graham Carr Nuneaton played in the Alliance Premier League and it was hard for Kelly to establish himself in the first team and when Carr could not offer Kelly a long-term contract he wanted he parted amicably for Stratford Town. At Stratford was his brother Abby and together they played in the Midland Combination League whilst he also worked as a banqueting porter at the Hotel Leofric. In the summer of 1983 Kelly began to visit his brother, Mel who had moved to London and was now playing for Dulwich Hamlet. After starting the 1984–85 season with Stratford Kelly moved to London in March 1985 and got a job as a security guard in Dulwich.


Kelly began to impress the coaches at Ashton Gate and he began to train with the first team and on 16 October 1982 he was named in the squad for a league match away at Hartlepool United. He came on as a second-half substitute in a 1–1 draw and at the age of 16 years and 244 days he became Bristol City’s youngest player. His record remained until it was broken by Marvin Brown in 1999. Kelly then played against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in the League Cup in a narrow 2–1 defeat. His brother Mel was struggling to make an impact and was released by the club in November 1982. It was at this time Kelly began to ‘get too big for his boots’ and began to show a poor attitude which did not go unnoticed by the management who sent him back to the youth team. He earned a recall to the first team against Hereford United on 28 December 1982 where he scored his first league goal in a 3–1 victory. However, by 1983 he was not being asked to play and in May 1983 he was informed by Terry Cooper he was being released because of his “rubbish attitude” and so Kelly returned to his family in Coventry.
