Daryl Thomas Fordyce (born 2 January 1987) is a Northern Irish professional footballer who plays as a forward for the Canadian club Valour FC.
Fordyce played for St Andrews and Lisburn Youth in Northern Ireland, winning major trophies with both teams when he was younger. He later joined Portsmouth. Working his way up through the club's youth ranks, Fordyce spent the second half of the 2005–06 season on loan at AFC Bournemouth before going back to Portsmouth.
In July 2007, he signed for Glentoran in Northern Ireland. At the beginning of the Irish League 2010/11 season he scored five goals against Lisburn Distillery in the first game of the season in a 6-1 win. Fordyce agreed a deal with Linfield just after the end of 2010/11 season, although he was in contract re-negotiations with Glentoran.
In 2012, Fordyce won the league title with Linfield after defeating Portadown 2–1 on 7 April. The team also won the Irish Cup for a record 42nd time, defeating Crusaders 4–1 in the final. Though Fordyce did not score in the final, he did score in Linfield's 5-1 defeat over Carrick Rangers.
On 18 January 2013, it was announced that Fordyce, along with his teammate Albert Watson, would not return to Linfield in the following season, instead seeking new playing opportunities in Canada. On 25 February 2013, it was reported that both would join FC Edmonton. After four seasons in Edmonton, Fordyce lefte the club as its all-time leading scorer.
The United Soccer League club FC Cincinnati announced that it had signed Fordyce on 16 January 2017. After little playing time with FC Cincinnati, Fordyce was released by the club in June 2017.
Return to Edmonton
Shortly after, Fordyce re-signed with FC Edmonton. After the 2017 season, with the future of FC Edmonton and the NASL in doubt, Fordyce was released from FC Edmonton.
On 8 February 2019, Fordyce signed a one-year contract with the League of Ireland Premier Division side Sligo Rovers. That season, he made 29 league appearances, scoring two goals, while making two appearances in the FAI Cup and one in the League of Ireland Cup.
On 10 January 2020, Fordyce signed with the Canadian Premier League side Valour FC.
Fordyce has represented Northern Ireland at Under-19 level, scoring both goals in the 2–1 European U19 Championship victory over Moldova in October 2005. He also scored four goals for Northern Ireland U-19 against Serbia & Montenegro.
He has made five appearances for the Northern Ireland national under-21 football team, scoring against Germany in November 2006.
