Wayne Quinn (born 19 November 1976) is an English former professional footballer who played as a left-back.


Sheffield United[edit]

Quinn started his career at Sheffield United, breaking into their first team in 1997.

Newcastle United[edit]

In 2001 Quinn was loaned to Newcastle United, who later purchased him for £800,000. After a difficult time at the club, scoring once against Lokeren in the Intertoto Cup,[1] he was loaned back out to Sheffield United, and then West Ham United before being released on a free transfer in 2004.


Since Quinn left West Ham United at the age of 28, he was not signed to another professional club. It was reported in the Plymouth Evening Herald that Quinn was offered a trial by English Championship club Plymouth Argyle but declined the opportunity, preferring to play amateur football in Cornwall because of a bad injury which led to surgery.

Quinn played for and managed Penzance along with Gary Marks, and in April 2012 he transferred to Falmouth Town, making his first appearance at centre back in a 1-1 draw at home to Elburton Villa.

He was appointed player-manager of South Western Premier League Division One West club Mousehole in 2013.[2]

International career[edit]

Quinn played for England's Under 21 team, and also played for England B.
