Career[edit]

Leicester City[edit]

Born in Colchester, Essex,[1] Pentney started his career with the Leicester City youth system, where he was a regular for the under-18 side as well as the England under-17 team. He was part of the under-18 squad that won the FA Premier Academy League by beating Sunderland under-18s 4–3 in a penalty shootout in the 2006–07 season.

Pentney signed his first professional contract on 5 May 2007, signing a one-year deal alongside Andy King, Max Gradel and Eric Odhiambo.[4] He joined Conference Premier team York City on a one-month loan on 9 August following a trial,[5][6] but he failed to make any appearances before returning to Leicester on 8 September.[7] He moved to Ilkeston Town on a one-month loan on 29 January 2008,[8] but was recalled on 8 February.[9] He later had a loan at Fisher Athletic,[10] where he made two appearances.[11] He signed a new one-year contract with Leicester in June 2008.[10]

Pentney joined Woking on a one-month loan on 23 October and he finished this spell with two appearances.[12][13] He made his first team debut for Leicester after coming on as a 59th minute substitute for David Martin against Swindon Town in a League One match, where he made saves against Simon Cox and Hal Robson-Kanu as Leicester drew 1–1.[14]

On 30 June 2009, Pentney signed a six-month contract extension with Leicester.[15] On 1 December Pentney again signed a six-month contract extension with Leicester, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2009–10 season.[16] On 13 February 2010, Pentney joined Leamington on a one-month loan deal which was later extended to the end of the season.[17][18] He finished the 2009–10 season having made no appearances for Leicester and the club announced on 17 May that he would be released when his contract expired on 30 June.[19]
