Timothy "Tim" Sherwood (born
2 February 1969in St Albans, England) is a former professional footballer who was captain of Blackburn Rovers' Premiership title winning side. He also made three appearances for England
Sherwood made his début for Watford against
Sheffield Wednesdayon 12 September 1987. 31 more league appearances followed in Division Two. He moved to Norwich City in July 1989 and notched up a total of 88 games and 13 goals in Norwich colours before joining Blackburn Rovers in February 1992.

As one of
Kenny Dalglish's first signings for Blackburn, he initially struggled to make the first team but became an integral part of Dalglish's big spending Rovers side. Under Sherwood's captaincy, Blackburn finished second in the Premiership in 1993-94 before winning it the following season. At this point it was a surprise that he did not gain international recognition, adding only an England B cap to the England Under 21 honours he picked up whilst at Norwich. During his time at the club Dalglish had wanted to sign both Zinedine Zidaneand Christophe Dugarrywho were playing in France for FC Girondins de Bordeaux, however Rovers Chairman Jack Walkerreportedly said to Dalglish: "Why do you want to sign Zidane when we have Tim Sherwood?"

With Sherwood unsettled in 1999 and having family and business links in
Hertfordshire, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal were the firm favourites for his signature, with George Graham again prepared to offer £4million for his services. This speculation became reality in the first week of February 1999 as Sherwood joined Spurs reportedly for £3million. He made his debut as an 87th minute substitute for Mauricio Tariccoin the 0-0 draw with Coventry on 6 February 1999. Sherwood won a runners-up medal with Tottenham Hotspur in the 2002 League Cup Final.
In January 2003, Sherwood informed the press that he had had a major argument with Spurs manager
Glenn Hoddleand that Hoddle had told him that he would never play for the club again. He left Tottenham, moving to Portsmouth on an initial four month contract on 29 January 2003. Upon signing he immediately became a regular in the side that went on to win the First Division Championship that season. Sherwood remained an important member of the Pompey squad for the first half of the 2003/04 Premiership season before breaking his leg against Tottenham on 26 December 2003. It was to be his last match for the club as, along with fellow veteran Teddy Sheringham, he was released in the 2004 close season.
Sherwood signed for
Peter Reid's Coventry City on 9 July 2004and vowed to win his third promotion to the Premiership [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/c/coventry_city/3879889.stm Sherwood Signs for Coventry] ] . Coventry were not promoted, and at the end of the season announced that Tim could leave on a free transfer. He parted company with the Sky Blues by mutual consent on 1 July 2005.
Tim made an impressive début at the age of 30 for England in their 3-1 victory over Poland at Wembley on
27 March 1999, his début being handed to him by new England manager Kevin Keegan. However, Tim only made a total of 3 full England appearances.
