Brockie attended Linworth High School, Paisley, and appeared for Paisley and District Schoolboys in the Scottish Amateur League. He was on Morton’s books as a schoolboy and signed apprentice forms for Leeds in July 1985, turning professional in July 1987. He featured strongly for the Junior and Reserve teams but could not quite make the transition to a higher level. He was given his chance in the last two fixtures of the 1987-88 campaign by Billy Bremner but was not given a chance by Howard Wilkinson. After a two month trial with Doncaster Rovers he was bought for £15,000 in March 1989 by Joe Kinnear. He prospered with Rovers as Billy Bremner took over and gave him another chance. After fifty-four games, in which he scored seven goals, he was released by Doncaster Rovers in the summer of 1991, when injuries dictated that he could no longer play League football. He still played Non-League and joined Goole Town and later Guiseley, where he appeared in the 1992 FA Vase Final at Wembley, as well as Hyde United, Bardsey, Harrogate Town, Garforth Town, North Ferriby United, Bardsey again, Farsley Celtic, Eastwood Town and Glasshoughton Welfare. He became Assistant Manager of Harrogate Railway Athletic in August 2005 and progressed to Manager in February 2007 until April 2008. Brockie left Harrogate and had a year out of the game before going back to Nethermoor to manage the Guisley reserves. He left there to become John Deacey’s number two at Bradford Park Avenue and helped Deacey take them right to the play-off final after finishing as UniBond Premier Division runners-up behind Guiseley. He left Park Avenue and went back to Guiseley to Manage their second team. He was appointed Manager of Thackley on 1st June 2011.
