Club career


Born in Harrogate, North Yorkshire,[1] Garbutt attended Harrogate Grammar School where he played in the Year 7 School Football team that reached the Harrogate and District Cup Final in 2005. His impressive performances for his junior club team, Pannal Ash Juniors, saw him signed by Leeds United where he began his professional career. Shortly after leaving school, he was signed from their academy by Everton in 2009, for an initial fee of £600,000 which was set by a tribunal as the two clubs could not agree a fee.[3] He was loaned to Cheltenham Town during the 2011–12 season.

In the 2012–13 season Garbutt made his Everton debut, coming on at half-time during a 5–0 League Cup second-round win over Leyton Orient on 29 August 2012.[4]

Ahead of the 2013–14 season, Garbutt signed a new two-year contract with Everton,[5] and during the season went to Colchester United on loan.

Garbutt made his Premier League debut as a late substitute at Southampton in April 2014[6] and built on that with his first appearance for England's Under-21s in a 3–1 European Championship qualifying win over Wales the following month.[7]

Cheltenham Town (loan)

In September 2011 he joined Cheltenham Town on an initial one-month loan deal.[8] He made his professional debut as Cheltenham beat Wycombe Wanderers 3–1 on 4 October 2011 in the Football League Trophy.[9] His FA Cup debut was memorable as Cheltenham were drawn away to Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur; the game ended 3–0 to Tottenham.[10] He continued to extend his loan spell and on 31 January 2012 scored his first goal, a free kick in a 3–1 win away at Macclesfield, sending Cheltenham to the top of the league in the process.[11] He scored again in the following game, netting the opening goal against Crawley Town from outside the area.[12] On 13 February he extended his loan spell by a further five weeks.[13]

Colchester United (loan)

On 13 September 2013, Garbutt joined League One side Colchester United on an initial 28-day loan.[14] He made his debut the following day, in a 2–2 draw against Bradford City at Valley Parade.[15] On 28 January 2014, Everton recalled Garbutt from his loan spell following the lengthy injury to Bryan Oviedo.[16]

On 30 June 2015, Everton announced that Garbutt had signed new five-year deal with the club.[23]

Fulham (loan)

On 25 July 2015, Garbutt was loaned to Championship side Fulham for the 2015–16 season.[24] He made his debut on the 4 October 2015, in a 2–2 draw with Charlton Athletic at The Valley.[25] He scored his first goal for Fulham in a 2–2 draw with Bolton Wanderers on 19 December 2015.[26] He returned from his loan spell having made 26 appearances for the London club, scoring once.[25]

Wigan Athletic (loan)

Oxford United (loan)
