Career[edit]

Nottingham Forest[edit]

Born in Leeds, West Yorkshire,[1] Sinclair started his career with Bradford City's youth system in 2005 before being released and signing for Nottingham Forest in 2006.[2][3] The forward was given chances, along with other young players, in Forest's 2007 pre-season.

Sinclair made his professional debut away at Chester City in the first round of the League Cup. He came on as a substitute in extra time and went on to score the winning penalty in the penalty shootout.

He made his League debut with a brief appearance at Swansea City. He scored his first professional goal after netting the last of Forest's 4–0 victory against Gillingham, just two minutes after coming on as a substitute for hat-trick man Junior Agogo. Following this run of form, the 19-year-old was rewarded with a new two-year deal at the City Ground club on 2 October 2007.

On 22 November 2007, Sinclair joined Brentford on a one-month loan deal.[4] His debut was in a 7–0 loss against to Peterborough United. He was dropped onto the bench and made his other three appearances as a substitute. His loan spell ended on 2 January 2008.[citation needed] He netted two goals in the reserves upon his return and returned to the first team days later as he came off the bench in Forest's 4–0 victory over Leyton Orient. He helped The Reds finish second in the 2007–08 season in League One, gaining promotion to the Football League Championship.

With The Reds gaining promotion, manager Colin Calderwood has commented that he will be given the chance to impress next season after Forest's promotion to the Football League Championship in the upcoming 2008–09 campaign.[5]

On 16 October he joined Conference Premier team Mansfield Town on loan, scoring on his debut against Wrexham. He went on to score five goals in 15 games on loan with Mansfield before returning to Forest.[6]

Macclesfield Town[edit]

Sinclair joined Macclesfield Town on loan on 15 January 2009. He was released by Nottingham Forest in May 2009. After a successful loan spell out the club it was announced on 22 May 2009 that he had signed a permanent 1-year deal.[7] Sinclair progressed through the 2009/10 season playing 42 games and scoring 7 goals. He signed a new two-year contract expiring at the end of the 2011/12 season.[citation needed]

Peterborough United[edit]

Sinclair joined Peterborough United on 31 August 2011. Peterborough paid an undisclosed fee for the striker, who signed a three-year contract with the club.[8] Sinclair scored a brace on his debut start in a 2–1 home victory against Burnley with both goals. On 17 December he started against Coventry City at home, Paul Taylor picked up the ball with 20 minutes remaining and found Sinclair in the box, Sinclair guided the ball into the top corner, the game finished 1–0.

He scored his first goals of the 2012–13 season with a hat-trick in a 3–1 win at Hull City on 29 September. These goals helped Peterborough to their first points of the season, Peterborough were the only team in all 4 divisions without a point.

On 20 November, he signed for Barnsley on loan until 19 January 2013.[9]

Doncaster Rovers[edit]

Sinclair's loan spell at Barnsley ended abruptly as he signed for Doncaster on 5 January 2013.[10] He made his debut immediately, starting in the match against Colchester on 5 January, being subbed in 67th minute as manager Dean Saunders chose to bolster the midfield.[11]

Crawley Town[edit]

Sinclair joined League One side Crawley Town on a two-year deal on 29 August 2013 for £100,000.[12]

Northampton Town[edit]

On 31 January 2014, Sinclair joined League Two club Northampton Town on loan for the remainder of the season.[13]

York City[edit]

Sinclair was released by Northampton on 19 January 2015, just six months in to a two-year deal, and a day later joined fellow League Two side York City on a one-and-a-half-year contract.[14][15]
