Gary began his career with Shelbourne youth however he departed in 2002 and went to Drogheda United where he spent 3 years during which he picked up an FAI Cup winners medal in 2005 with the Drogs. He decided to leave Boyneside for the 2006 season to join Dublin City however despite nailing down the number 1 jersey, the Vikings were to go bust and Rogers found himself looking for a new club and he spent the second half of the season with Bray Wanderers.
A new challenge was to follow for the net minder when he joined Galway United following their promotion in 2007 and he spent two seasons there as he was a key part of their side which retained their Premier Division status and these performances paved the way for a move to St. Patrick’s Athletic where after helping stave off relegation he was a part of the side which went on memorable European adventures in 2 separate seasons where they reached the Europa League Playoffs in 2009/10.
He signed for Paul Cook at Sligo Rovers and tasted immediate success at the Showgrounds where they clinched the league title in his first season and in 2013 he won his second FAI Cup medal defeating his former side Drogheda United in a thrilling final 3-2 at Lansdowne Road. The 2014 season saw the Navan native win a Setanta Sports Cup with the Bit O’Red, against Dundalk in the final, meaning he had won a trophy in each of his three seasons there.
Rogers joined Dundalk in November 2014 ahead of the 2015 season, signing a two-year contract, and was an ever present in the starting lineup which clinched a historic double and was part of the first ever Dundalk team to retain the league title.
