Bio

Former MK Dons centre half, Antony signed a one-year contract extension to his deal last summer, extending his stay at Stadium:MK to four years. He started his career in his childhood town of Barnsley, rising through the ranks at Oakwell to make 197 appearances during his seven year stay with the Tykes. At the end of the 2007-08 season the Yorkshireman made the switch to Tranmere Rovers and took up the role of a goal scoring midfielder and quickly caught the attention of Huddersfield Town.


The ball playing defender was part of the Terrier squad to miss out in the Play-offs in League One on two occasions before finally achieving promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2011-12 season. Following his move from Huddersfield, the defender added a solid backbone to the Dons, establishing himself as a first choice centre-back. In the Dons promotion-winning campaign of 2014-15, Kay missed just one league fixture through suspension and played a crucial role in the breaking of the club’s clean-sheet record, Antony extended that run last season with a further 36 appearances.


33-year-old Kay joined the Shakers at the end of June with 573 appearances under his belt thus far and has signed a two-year deal at Gigg Lane
