Febian Brandy: A Football Background

29 June 2014

A look at the career of the Millers' latest addition...

Manchester-born Febian Brandy couldn’t have had a better football education after starting his career with Manchester United.

After progressing through the ranks at Old Trafford he also grabbed the attention of England, representing his country at under 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 levels. 

His early form brought him to the cusp of first-team football with United after representing the Red Devils in the FA Youth Cup final.

In 2008 he joined League One Swansea City on loan scoring three times in 21 appearances for the Welsh club, helping them to the League One title. His impressive form for the Swans earned him another loan switch to the same club for the following season, earning him valuable experience in the second tier of English football.

Further loan spells at Hereford United and Gillingham followed but in 2010 Brandy was released by Manchester United.

In 2011 he signed for Notts County but it proved to be a brief stint and after a short stay in Greek football he returned to England to sign for Walsall.

It was with the Saddlers that he made his mark in English football. During the 2012/13 season he made 37 appearances in all competitions and scored seven goals becoming an integral member of the Walsall squad.

In the close season he moved to Sheffield United and was impressive on his debut as the Blades defeated his former club Notts County. After a positive start he fell out of favour and re-joined Walsall on loan.

During his second stint he bagged a hat-trick against Notts County again in a 5-1 victory and ended the season having played a combined 35 times for the Blades and Walsall.
