Career[edit]

Leicester City[edit]

Born in Colchester, Essex,[1] Pentney started his career with the Leicester City youth system, where he was a regular for the under-18 side as well as the England under-17 team.[4] He was part of the under-18 squad that won the FA Premier Academy League by beating Sunderland under-18s 4–3 in a penalty shootout in the 2006–07 season.

Pentney signed his first professional contract on 5 May 2007, signing a one-year deal alongside Andy King, Max Gradel and Eric Odhiambo.[5] He joined Conference Premier team York City on a one-month loan on 9 August following a trial,[6][7] but he failed to make any appearances before returning to Leicester on 8 September.[8] He moved to Ilkeston Town on a one-month loan on 29 January 2008,[9] but was recalled on 8 February.[10] He later had a loan at Fisher Athletic,[11] where he made two appearances.[12] He signed a new one-year contract with Leicester in June 2008.[11]

Pentney joined Woking on a one-month loan on 23 October and he finished this spell with two appearances.[13][14] He made his first team debut for Leicester after coming on as a 59th minute substitute for David Martin against Swindon Town in a League One match, where he made saves against Simon Cox and Hal Robson-Kanu as Leicester drew 1–1.[15]

On 30 June 2009, Pentney signed a six-month contract extension with Leicester.[16] On 1 December Pentney again signed a six-month contract extension with Leicester, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2009–10 season.[17] On 13 February 2010, Pentney joined Leamington on a one-month loan deal which was later extended to the end of the season.[18][19] He finished the 2009–10 season having made no appearances for Leicester and the club announced on 17 May that he would be released when his contract expired on 30 June.[20]

Colchester United[edit]

Pentney joined League One side Colchester United on a non-contract basis on 5 August to cover for injured goalkeeper Ben Williams,[21] before eventually signing a one-year contract on 9 September.[22]

On 4 November Pentney joined Bath City of the Conference Premier on a one-month loan as cover for the injured Ryan Robinson.[23] He made his debut two days later in a 2–2 with Altrincham.[24] The loan was extended for a second month in December.[25] Pentney signed for Conference South club Chelmsford City on loan until the end of the 2010–11 season on 10 March 2011.[26] On 12 September, Pentney returned to Chelmsford on a one-month loan deal.[27] He signed for Conference Premier side Hayes & Yeading United on a one-month loan on 16 November.[28] Pentney signed a one-year contract extension with Colchester on 12 June 2012.[29] He joined Histon on a month-long loan deal on 9 November 2012.[30]

Bishop's Stortford[edit]

Pentney joined Bishop's Stortford on loan in January 2013.[31] His contract with Colchester United was cancelled by mutual consent in the last week of the same month, and subsequently he joined Bishop's Stortford until the end of the season.[32]

Chelmsford City[edit]

Pentney signed for Chelmsford City on 12 June 2013.

Maidenhead United[edit]

After a brief spell with Braintree Town, in which he made two appearances, Pentney joined Maidenhead United in 2015, and was ever-present over the next two seasons, including promotion to the National League in 2017.
