Simon Ferry Career

Club career

Ferry joined a four-and-a-half-year professional deal with the club in January 2006. He was a member of the Under-19 League and Cup double in 2006 and was one of a number of players named by coach Willie McStay as a candidate for the first team.

Ferry made his first-team debut on a pre-season tour of Poland, defeating Wis Kraków and Legia Warsaw.

His career growth was hampered by injury issues he suffered in the 2006–07 season, which resulted in him missing nearly three years of club football. In February 2009, he rejoined the Celtic first-team squad and played in a Wembley Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur. Ferry later told BBC Wiltshire that he was worried that the ankle injury would end his career.

Ferry and Celtic teammate Ben Hutchinson joined Swindon Town on loan until January 2010. In a 2–1 victory over Southend United on Sunday, he made his debut for Swindon on August 29th, winning the club's Man of the Match award. In a 4–1 victory over Tranmere Rovers two months later, he scored his first goal for the club on October 31, 2009.

On the week after scoring his first goal on November 26, 2009, Celtic's parent club Celtic had been notified that a contract had been reached with Celtic to extend the loan until the end of the season. Ferry said he would like to remain at the club and that he had adapted well to life on and off the field at Swindon Town. Ferry defeated Stockport County 4–1. He 'blacked out' after the match, but didn't recall the goal.

Ferry scored an own goal in Swindon's play-off semi-final victory over Charlton Athletic in May 2010. Swindon will lose in the play-off final to Millwall, effectively ending out of a spot in the Championship (Ferry started in the final). Ferry said playing at Wembley was a good stage in his career, saying, "need to jump one way or the other" at the end of the season, according to club chairman Andrew Fitton.

Ferry and Celtic teammate, defender Paul Caddis, signed a permanent deal with Swindon on August 2, 2010. Ferry has previously stated that he wanted his transfer to Swindon Town to be a long-term contract. Ferry said it was a relief to move to Swindon permanently after the move was described as "deed in the mud."

Ferry's first game after signing on a permanent basis came in the first game of the season, when a replacement for David Prutton was used against Brighton & Hove Albion in a 2–1 loss against Brighton and Hove Albion. Ferry returned to the sidelines a month later after suffering an ankle injury in preparation that required him to miss two weeks. In a 3–2 loss against Plymouth Argyle on September 28, he returned from injury on September 28, 2010 as a replacement for Thomas Dossevi. Ferry has been on the bench since being unemployed, as he made 21 appearances. After losing 3-1 against Sheffield Wednesday, the club was relegated. Ferry and Hart were forced to leave, and Ferry and Hart were informed that Ferry was considering quitting the team.

Ferry said he could look forward to life at the club next season, following the appointment of Paolo Di Canio as Swindon's manager. Ferry nearly departed the team three weeks after being behind Oliver Risser, Jonathan Smith, and Alan McCormack in the pecking order for a position in the center of midfield, only Di Canio revealed it. On Ferry, he said, "I was not content with the way he behaved, not that he was lazy because he was always trained well, but he didn't have the intention to do something more and put the opponent under pressure." But he has improved, and I've told him he deserved to play on occasion." Ferry will remain at the club, despite having him in the first squad this season.

Ferry overly praised Di Canio's squad pick and was immediately dropped from his first squad squad roster after being active in eight out of nine games for Swindon Town. Ferry was praised for his home form, with Di Canio describing him as the main star who pressed everywhere and pushed every ball. Ferry scored his first goal on his return and first since moving to Swindon in a 3–3 draw against Hereford United on October 8, 2011. During a 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town of League One, he scored his first FA Cup goal. Ferry and the rest of the team were given the Ronnie Radford Award in a 2–1 victory over Wigan in the third round of the FA Cup.

Ferry was one of many players on a wild night out after a match against Plymouth Argyle that had prompted them to apologise by posting a note on the club website stating that they had "let their expectations massively fall" during the match. Despite the traumatic incident, Di Canio forgave the participants, including Ferry, after a warning not to ever let him down again. Ferry wad once more lauded by Di Canio after the club's promotion to League One. Ferry made the most appearances with the club this season, making 53 appearances.

Ferry continued to play in his first team position at Swindon Town during the 2014 season with the club's promotion return to League One. Ferry was named in the League One Team of the Week for the first time on October 1, 2012, when he scored in a 1–0 victory over Shrewsbury Town. Ferry was named captain in November before a match against Macclesfield Town in the FA Cup's first round, but losing 2–0. Ferry scored his second goal of the season in a 2–0 win over Walsall and the following week, he gave four assists (for Andy Williams and Darren Ward) in a 4–1 victory over Yeovil Town. Ferry started playing on the right side of midfield under new boss Kevin MacDonald, mainly due to a lack of options in that position. Ferry scored two goals in two straight games against Walsall and Brentford. Ferry was named in the Week One Team of the Week for the second time on March 12, 2013.

Ferry was quickly released by Swindon in June when the club's playing budget was reduced. Ferry, a footballer, was sent by the club to Yeovil Town as a trialist. The club decided against signing Ferry after being featured in the friendly match against Poole Town.

Ferry completed a two-year deal with Portsmouth on a free transfer on July 25, 2013. Ferry is someone he needs after joining Portsmouth, and his work rate is outstanding, which is something our customers are eager for. He's also a person who can link play, and we'll be defending our box one minute and the next one attacking the opposition. I think his all-round game is very good. Simon is a big part of what we want to achieve.

In a 4–1 home loss to Oxford United on August 3, 2013. He made his debut in a 4–1 home loss on August 3. Ferry scored his first Pompey goal in a 2–1 away victory over Burton Albion on September 14th. Ferry believes that if the team wanted to be a dominant contender in League Two after scoring against Burton Albion. Ferry played in every league game for the Blues before he sustained a hamstring injury.

Ferry made his return on October 26, 2013, after missing out three games, as Portsmouth defeated Torquay United 1-1. Ferry was able to return from a draw with Torquay United after being on the sidelines. Ferry was captain when they lost 3–2 to Exeter City on November 2nd. Ferry would have suffered a hamstring and back injury that kept him out for months. Ferry made his return and captain as Portsmouth defeated Hartlepool United 1–0. Ferry was captain again in a match against Dagenham & Redbridge in the next game. Ferry was forced to come off in the 38th minute and was recalled, but Portsmouth will win 4–1. Ferry missed the remainder of the season due to his back injury, which was revealed after the match.

Ferry left Portsmouth by mutual consent after one year on contract and was supposed to leave for Scotland.

Ferry returned to Scotland on June 7, 2014, where he signed for Dundee, his sixth signing of the season, ahead of their Scottish Premiership campaign. "I know he played the last year as a sitting midfielder, but I see his strengths in attacking and going forward with the ball," manager Paul Hartley said upon his move to Dundee. He's young and vivacious, and he's established himself in England at a high level."

He scored on his debut for Dundee against Peterhead in the first round of the Scottish League Cup. Ferry played his league debut for Dundee in a 1–1 draw against Kilmarnock in the first game of the season. However, his time at Dundee was interrupted twice because of injuries. Ferry made twenty-two appearances and scored once in all competitions despite the injuries. He was released from his employment by mutual consent on August 31, 2015.

Ferry joined Scottish third-tier side Peterhead in September 2015, two years after being in a play-off final to reach the second tier of English football. Ferry scored on his own debut against Stirling Albion, resulting in a 1–0 loss. Ferry's last game for Peterhead was also a draw because of his own goal for Airdrieonians. In May 2022, he left the club.

International career

He missed the 2007 FIFA Under-20 World Cup due to injury.

Media career

Ferry was asked to start a podcast called Keeping the Ball on the Ground, which would feature interviews with footballers and inside-the-room anecdotes, while still juggling between a Royal Mail night-shift job and part-time Peterhead's part-time Peterhead's career. "I'd never, ever heard of a podcast." I was writing a lot of shite on Twitter, and people found it amusing, so a lot of retweets followed it. He's obviously seen my Twitter and thought, 'You'll be fine for this,'" says the author.' After being one of Ferry's constant questions in the Dens Park dressing room, Kevin Thomson, Ferry's former teammate, decided that he would be just right for the role.

Ferry's YouTube channel has a segment about an interview. He has interviewed football players and executives like Andy Robertson, Ally McCoist, John Hartson, Barry Ferguson, David Moyes, Duncan Durrant, Ian Durrant, Kenny Miller, Jonathan Woodgate, and Gordon Strachan.
