Sheldon Bateau (born 29 January 1991) is a Trinidadian professional footballer who plays as a central defender for Turkish club Samsunspor. Bateau also represents the Trinidad and Tobago national team.

Bateau began his professional football career in 2009, at the age of 18, with San Juan Jabloteh in his native Trinidad and Tobago. After three seasons with the San Juan Kings, Bateau made a switch to fellow Pro League club North East Stars.[1] However, Bateau later made a transfer after one month to KV Mechelen of the Belgian Pro League prior to the 2012–13 season.[2]

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Bateau spent his early career in his native Trinidad and Tobago with San Juan Jabloteh of the TT Pro League. In his three seasons with the San Juan Kings, Bateau appeared in 16 matches and scored four goals. However, after the club dissolved due to financial difficulties following the 2011–12 season, Bateau switched to North East Stars.[1][3] In August 2012, before playing a match for his new club, Bateau received a trial with FC Twente of the Eredivisie.[4] Since Bateau is not a European Union player, his salary became a block for a transfer to the Eredivisie club.

KV Mechelen[edit]

On 13 September 2012, Bateau signed a one-year contract with an option for two additional years with KV Mechelen of the Belgian Pro League.[2] Sheldon made his league debut on 6 October coming on as a substitute in the 59th minute in a 0–2 defeat to Kortrijk. On 31 October, Sheldon made his first start for the club against OH Leuven that resulted in a 1–3 loss. Afterwards, Bateau solidified a place in the starting line-up as a centre back and appeared in 11 league matches, including five consecutive starts, prior to the 2012–13 winter break.[5] His consistent form resulted in Sheldon signing a two-year contract extension, on 18 January 2013, keeping him at Mechelen until the end of the 2014–15 season.[6][7] On 27 April, Bateau scored his first two league goals during a play-off match against Waasland-Beveren that provided his club a vital 2–0 win. Bateau concluded his first season in Belgium with 22 league appearances and two goals.

Sheldon started the 2013–14 season as a regular in defence for Mechelen.

Kairat[edit]

On 27 June 2017, Bateau signed for Kazakhstan Premier League side FC Kairat on loan for the remainder of Kairat's 2017 season.[8] On 29 December 2017, Krylia Sovetov Samara announced that they had agreed to extend Bateau's loan to Kairat for an additional year.[9]

Sarpsborg 08[edit]

On 14 February 2019, Sarpsborg 08 announced that they had signed Bateau for the 2019 season.[10]

Samsunspor[edit]

On 9 January 2022, Bateau signed a 2.5-year contract with Samsunspor in Turkey.[11]

International career[edit]

Bateau has been capped at under-17,[12] under-20,[13] under-23 Olympic team, and the Trinidad and Tobago national team.[14]

Bateau made his debut for the Trinidad and Tobago national team on 6 February 2013 in a match against Peru playing the entire match which ended in a 0–2 loss for the Soca Warriors.[14] On 5 September, Bateau made a substitute appearance in a 3–3 draw against the United Arab Emirates. In the following match, Bateau started and led the Soca Warriors to a 3–1 win over Saudi Arabia to claim third place in the 2013 OSN Cup. Sheldon continued as a starter in Stephen Hart's back-line during the next two international matches against New Zealand and Jamaica.[15]

On 4 June 2014, Bateau started in a 3–0 loss during a send-off series match for Argentina at Estadio Monumental prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup.[16] Four days later, Bateau made an additional start in centre defence before being replaced by Gavin Hoyte in the 72nd minute for the Soca Warriors in a 2–0 loss to Iran in Arena Corinthians.
