Tranmere Rovers[edit]

Dagnall was born in Liverpool and played for Tranmere Rovers from the age of 13 as a trainee. He made his debut aged 17 in a 0–0 home draw against Peterborough United in League One. He came on as a 90th minute substitute for Ryan Taylor.[2] He went on to make 10 league appearances and one League Cup appearance, and scored his first career goal in a 3–1 away defeat to Luton Town.[3] Tranmere narrowly missed out on the play-offs finishing in 8th place.[4] He started the next season by scoring and being sent off in a 2–1 home win against Hartlepool United, where he was shown a second yellow card after over-celebrating his goal.[5] He began to score more frequently finishing the season with 6 goals, with Tranmere winning every game in which he scored.[6] Tranmere finished the season in third place, however they lost to Hartlepool in the play-offs.[7] He made several appearances at the start of the following season including his FA Cup debut which was a 2–1 loss away to future club Bradford City.[8] On 13 January 2006 he went on loan to Rochdale, originally on a temporary basis.[9] He spent the rest of the season with Rochdale and scored 3 goals in 21 appearances.[10]

Rochdale[edit]

In July 2006, Rochdale made the move permanent for an initial fee of £25,000. Rochdale manager Steve Parkin had seen him as a replacement for top scorer Grant Holt, who had signed for Nottingham Forest for £300,000.[11] He made his second debut for Rochdale in a 1–0 loss at home to Walsall, coming on as a late substitute.[12] He scored regularly for Rochdale including braces against Boston United, Wrexham and Peterborough.[13] He scored his first hat-trick in a 5–0 win at Spotland against Macclesfield Town on 21 April 2007.[14] He ended the season with 17 league goals, finishing joint 4th top scorer in the league.[15] In the following season he received an injury after playing just 8 games, which led to a lengthy lay-off. He did not play from September 2007 until March 2008, where he marked his return with a hat-trick in a 4–1 win against Rotherham United in his first game back.[16] In May he scored in three consecutive games which included a draw at home to Shrewsbury, and in both play-off semi-final legs against Darlington, losing the first game and winning the second a week later. The tie went to penalties which Rochdale won 5–4.[17] However Rochdale lost 3–2 in the final at Wembley to Stockport County.[18] He finished the season with 9 league goals, despite only playing 17 games. His first goal of the 2008–2009 season came in a 3–1 home win against Barnet.[19] On 21 October 2008 he scored his third career hat-trick in a 6–1 home win against Chester.[20] On 3 March 2009 Dagnall received the second red card of his career, coming in a 2–1 away defeat to Barnet.[21] He finished the season with 10 goals, helping Rochdale to another play-off semi-final, where they were beaten by Gillingham.[22] Dagnall scored 6 goals in the first 10 league games at the start of the 2009–10 season, including a brace against Torquay United on 12 September 2009.[23] On 27 March 2010 he scored another hat-trick, this time in a 4–1 win against Grimsby Town.[24] This was his 4th career hat-trick.
