Christopher Edward "Chris" Sedgwick (born 28 April 1980) is an English professional footballer who plays for Bury.

Career[edit]

Rotherham United[edit]

Born in Sheffield, Sedgwick began his career as a right midfielder at Rotherham United, where he was affectionately known as the Yorkshire Express, and made over 250 first team appearances in a seven-year stint at the Yorkshire club. During that time he earned a reputation as an honest hard-working right-midfielder with good distribution skills. He was often regarded as the talisman of the club because of his Sheffield upbringing and passion for the club.

Preston North End[edit]

He signed for Preston North End for £400,000 in November 2004. At Preston, Sedgwick started to fulfill his potential as a right midfielder under Billy Davies although the departure of Davies affected the certainty of his place in the team. Sedgwick did lose his place to Simon Whaley on the right wing when new manager Paul Simpson took charge at Preston. Towards the beginning of the 2006–07 season, Sedgwick was asked to play in central midfield, a new position for the winger, forming a partnership with Paul McKenna. In May 2010, Preston Boss Darren Ferguson said that he would not be extending Sedgwick's contract at the club as he was surplus to requirements. Super Chris Sedgwick

Sheffield Wednesday[edit]

On 7 June 2010 he became Alan Irvine's first summer signing at Sheffield Wednesday in the 2010–11 pre-season.[1] After playing forty-three times for the club in the league, scoring five goals, Sedgwick was amongst the six first-team players to be released after being a part of Sheffield Wednesday's promotion squad that took them up to the Football League Championship.

Scunthorpe United and Hyde[edit]

On 3 November 2012, Scunthorpe United boss Brian Laws confirmed that he had signed for the club on non-contract terms.[2] But after three appearances he was sent out on a two-month loan to Conference National side Hyde.[3] He made his debut for the club in a 3–1 win at Newport County.[4] He scored his first goal in Hyde's 2–0 Boxing Day win away at Stockport County.[5] On 22 January 2013, he signed for Hyde on a permanent basis.[6] He made another thirteen appearances in 2012–13 without scoring, and was released at the end of the season.[7]

Bury[edit]

On 10 July 2013, Sedgwick signed a one-year contract with League Two club Bury. Then at the end of the season, Sedgewick signed a extra 12 month contract.[8]
