Born in Sheffield, he came through the ranks at his home-town club, has also represented England at U16 level and had loan spells with Chesterfield and Burton Albion.

Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

A product of Sheffield United's Academy McFadzean was a member of the team that reached the final of the FA Youth Cup in 2011, scoring in the first leg of the final against Manchester United.[2] He was eventually promoted to the senior squad and made his professional début in the first game of the 2012–13 season, a League Cup tie against Burton Albion.[3] Now on the fringes of the first team and regularly securing a place on the bench, McFadzean made his first start for the Blades in the Johnstones Paint Trophy against Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena.[4] Following a handful of substitute appearances that season,[5] McFadzean was handed a more prominent role by caretaker manager Chris Morgan following the departure of Danny Wilson in April 2012. After a number of first-team starts at the tail end of the season,[5] McFadzean came off the bench to score the winning goal in the first leg of United's play-off semi-final against Yeovil Town.[6] Following his successful end to the season McFadzean had had his contract with the Blades extended in June 2013.[7]

McFadzean started the following season as part of the first team but was sidelined by injury during September.[8] Following the arrival of new United manager Nigel Clough, McFadzean joined Chesterfield in November 2013 on a short-term loan.[9] McFadzean returned to his parent club in January 2014 after making five appearances for Chesterfield, but remained out of United's first team picture, and in March 2014, McFadzean joined League Two side Burton Albion on an initial one month loan.[10] McFadzean remained with Burton for the remainder of the season, scoring one goal and making ten appearances for his temporary employers, including playing in Burton's unsuccessful appearance in the play-off final at Wembley.[11]

On 3 July 2014, McFadzean rejoined Burton Albion on a six-month loan deal.[12] On 7 October 2014, McFadzean was ruled out for up to two-months after breaking his Fifth metatarsal bone in a match against Cambridge United.[13]

International career[edit]

McFadzean made five appearances for England's under 16 squad during the 2009–10 season.[14] McFadzean is also eligible to represent Scotland due to his Scottish heritage.[15]

Personal life[edit]

McFadzean was born in Sheffield and continues to live in the Waterthorpe district of the city.[16] He is the younger brother of Crawley Town defender Kyle McFadzean, who also started his career at Bramall Lane.[17]

Assault charges[edit]

In October 2013 McFadzean was released on bail after being charged with two counts of assault and two counts of threatening behaviour after an incident in Sheffield city centre earlier the same month.[18] McFadzean pleaded guilty to two charges of assault when his case came to court in November 2013, admitting to hitting one female friend and headbutting another while drunk.[19] As a result he was given a community order with 12 months supervision.[16]
