Born in Liverpool, Merseyside, Schumacher began his career at Everton and was captain of the England Under 19s while he was playing in the club's youth team. He was unable to break into the first team, however, and after a couple of minor loan spells with Carlisle United (where he scored his first career goal against Huddersfield Town in the LDV Vans Trophy) and Oldham Athletic, he signed for Bradford City in 2004.
Schumacher has accrued a reputation as a fiercely competitive midfielder, equally adept in a holding or attacking role. His best season so far was the 2004–05 season, making over 40 first team starts, and scoring freely from his role in the Bantams midfield.
Schumacher's Bradford contract expired and he left the club on 18 May 2007 as he was not thought to be in new Bradford City manager Stuart McCall's plans, speculation indicated that he could have been offered a new contract by the club in a change of heart by McCall and owner Julian Rhodes.
However, he soon signed for Crewe Alexandra. His first two years at Crewe were restricted and he spent more than four months out through injury from November 2008 until the following February. In May 2010 it was announced that he would leave Crewe Alexandra when his contract expired in the summer. He had played 81 times in his three years at the club.
He signed for Bury on 8 July 2010 and was made captain after he led the team out against Port Vale. In the same season he led them to Promotion from League 2, appearing in over 40 league matches for the club.
