Barry Douglas



Barry DouglasBarry Douglas (born 4 September 1989, Glasgow, Scotland) is a Scottish footballer who plays for T-Mobile Ekstraklasa club Lech Poznań as a left back. He joined the club in May 2013 after previously playing for Dundee United.

Douglas attended Lourdes Secondary in Glasgow and played for Livingston youth teams, but was released at the age of sixteen because he was considered "too small". He spent a year out of football before joining Queen's Park, becoming part of their first team squad in 2008. Douglas made his senior debut in August 2008, in a Scottish Second Division match against Stranraer. He went on to become a first team regular for Queen's Park, playing for the amateur club while also working as a refrigeration engineer. His performances saw him linked with a number of professional clubs, despite Queen's being relegated to the Third Division in 2009. Douglas continued to impress at the lower level, scoring nine goals from his full back position during the 2009-10 season (he was the Queen's Park top scorer).

On 20 June 2010 he signed professionally with Dundee United. His debut for his new club came in August of that year, as a substitute against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the SPL. At 28 May 2013 he signed a two-year deal with Polish club Lech Poznań.

Since making the move, the 25-year-old full back has established himself as a key player for the Polish top flight club, proving himself to be both reliable defensively and a dangerous threat in attack.

The left back made 76 appearances over two seasons for Queens Park before moving to Dundee United. In his second season at Queens Park Douglas scored an impressive nine goals.

Over his three seasons at Dundee United he made 75 appearances, scoring four goals

Douglas made 18 appearances in his first season in Poland and has already featured seven times this season. He has scored one goal (against Wisla Krakow on the opening day of this season).

Douglas has been booked seven times in Poland, but has carved out a reputation as an ‘aggressive tackler’ and he certainly seems to be enjoying his Polish adventure.
