Terry Kennedy (born 14 November 1993) is an English footballer currently playing as a defender for Sheffield United in Football League One. Born in Barnsley, England he spent time at his home–town club as a junior before making the switch to United.

Career[edit]

Kennedy made his début for the Blades in May 2011, coming on as a substitute in the last game of the 2010–11 season against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.[3] Much was expected of Kennedy heading into his second season as a professional with the Blades, but due to a recurring knee problem he missed the majority of the campaign and didn't make a single appearance. After an intense rehabilitation period, Kennedy made his first start for the Blades in away game against Doncaster Rovers on 1 January 2013.[4] Despite only making one appearance during the previous season, Kennedy had had his contract with the Blades extended in June 2013.[5] Upon signing a new contract, Kennedy stated "I’m happy to sign a new deal at United... Hopefully, I’ll be able to repay the club, both this season and in the future, for the faith they’ve shown in me."[6] Kennedy's contract with United was extended on 16 May 2014.[7] On 31 January 2015, Kennedy signed a new contract with United keeping him at Bramall Lane until summer 2016.[8]Since his return from injury, Kennedy has been highly praised by both manager Clough and coach Chris Morgan, being labelled as the 'ginger John Terry'.
