Gary Schillaci Player Profile
Debut: Northwich Victoria (H, 4-1), 25/09/2004
Gary Schillaci was among a handful of players that proved themselves worthy of moving between youth and first team squads under Graham Westley. Brought into the first team after impressing at youth level, Schillaci was handed a squad number during the 2005-6 season. And we all know that is the sign of acceptance for a young lad breaking through.
As can be the case, however, it didn’t work out. The defender left the club at the end of that season after making just one appearance; an outing in an LDV Trophy defeat away to Swindon Town. After spending time on loan at clubs further down the ladder, the feeling was that he’d have no trouble finding a new club to establish himself.
