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.
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. 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. Despite only making one appearance during the previous season, Kennedy had had his contract with the Blades extended in June 2013. 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." Kennedy's contract with United was extended on 16 May 2014. On 31 January 2015, Kennedy signed a new contract with United keeping him at Bramall Lane until summer 2016.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'.
