Terry Galbraith became Chris Swailes' second major signing of the 2020/21 season as the club pulled off a major coup to bring the player back to where his footballing career began.
On his signing, Dunston UTS FC Manager Chris Swailes said, "For me he'll bring leadership, he's vocal wherever he plays, he'll bring experience, and these are valuable especially in this league".
Galbraith made his name at Dunston UTS FC as a youngster having joined from Redheugh Boys Club. He was a key player for Billy Irwin’s FA Vase winning side in 2012 alongside Chris Swailes and Liam Connell. Regarded as one of the brightest prospects in The Northern League during his first spell with the club, he left The UTS Stadium in November 2012 to join Darlington FC. During his seven seasons at Darlington, he would go on to win three promotion medals, making over 250 appearances and scoring over 50 goals for The Quakers and became a genuine favourite with their supporters.
After leaving Darlington at the end of the 2019/20 season, Dunston moved quickly to secure his signature. Long standing Club Chairman Mr Malcolm James said, "When Terry became available it was just natural that we'd be interested in the lad". He added " We're a club that is looking to go forward; Terry Galbraith and recent signing Liam Connell are two lads who we've always wanted to bring back to the club as this is where their hearts are".
Terry captained Darlington during the 2018/19 season and spent last season playing in The National League North.
Considered to be one of the best left backs in the history of Dunston UTS FC, he can play at the centre of defence, centre midfield and left wing, adding quality, leadership, and versatility to the Dunston side.
