Cheyenne Armani Keanu Roma "Chey" Dunkley (born 13 February 1992) is an English footballer who plays for Wigan Athletic as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Wolverhampton, Dunkley joined Crewe Alexandra's youth setup in 2006, aged 14.[3] He made his senior debut while on a work experience loan at Hednesford Town in 2010.

In the 2010 summer, Dunkley was released by Crewe, and joined Hednesford permanently. After two years acting as a starter, he moved to Conference Premier side Kidderminster Harriers in June 2012,[4] with the latter having to pay a £5,000 plus add-ons fee after a dispute in the tribunal was held.[5]

Oxford United[edit]

On 20 November 2014 Dunkley joined Oxford United on loan until the end of the season, with Sam Long moving in the opposite direction, and joined The Us permanently in January for an undisclosed fee.[6] He made his professional debut on 20 December 2014, coming on as a 31st-minute substitute in a 1–1 away draw against Hartlepool United.[7] He scored his first goal in a 4–1 away victory in League Two over Exeter City on 23 February 2016.[8] In April 2016 the "unfortunate" Dunkley scored an own goal in the final of the Football League Trophy against Barnsley at Wembley Stadium, a match which Barnsley won 3–2.[9] On 7 May 2016, Dunkley scored the first goal in the final game of the 2015–16 season against Wycombe Wanderers, a game which United won 3–0 to secure promotion to League One.[10]

Wigan Athletic[edit]

On 5 June 2017 it was announced that Dunkley would join Wigan Athletic at the end of his Oxford United contract.[11]
