Carl Bradshaw (born 2 October 1968 in Sheffield) is a former professional footballer who played for Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley, Manchester City, Sheffield United, Norwich City, Wigan Athletic and Scunthorpe Utd (where he scored once against Exeter City). He began his career playing as a forward before moving to defence.
Bradshaw's first club was Sheffield Wednesday. However, his first senior appearance came in a loan spell at Barnsley. He joined Manchester City in September 1988, in a swap with Imre Varadi. His Manchester City debut came in October 1988, as a substitute against West Bromwich Albion. He started the following match, against Sunderland, but this proved to be his only start for the club. In a year at Manchester City he made a total of seven appearances. He then transferred to Sheffield United in September 1989.
In September 1997, Bradshaw served a short prison sentence after an incident involving himself and Norwich teammate Andy Johnson that resulted in Bradshaw assaulting a taxi driver. His contract with Norwich was subsequently cancelled after being released from prison, and he signed with Wigan Athletic.
