Sean Scannell (born September 17, 1990, in Croydon, London) is an English born Irish footballer of Irish and Jamaican heritage who currently plays for Crystal Palace. He is primarily a striker but can also play on the right wing if needs be.

He is the brother of Southend United player Damian Scannell [] and as a youngster growing up played for Addiscombe Corinthians. He attended Ashburton Community school from 2002 to 2007 where he was a regular in the school team.

Scannell made his debut for Crystal Palace on December 4, 2007, coming on as a substitute for Franck Songo'o. In his home debut against Sheffield Wednesday on December 15, he again came on to replace Songo'o in the second half and scored a 90th minute winner, his first senior goal in a 2-1 victory for Crystal Palace.

Following this, Scannell was offered a two and a half year professional contract with Palace, and in order to beat off interest from, among others, Manchester United, Manchester City, Everton and Blackburn Rovers, chairman Simon Jordan placed his value at £3million. Scannell signed the contract at the beginning of the new year, and celebrated by scoring Palace's second goal in a 3-0 victory at Molineux against Wolverhampton Wanderers the following weekend.

Scannell is described as an exciting player with searing pace [] and is one of many talents to emerge from Palace's academy in the last few years. He has also won the Crystal Palace Young Player of the Year Award 2008

His good form with Palace led to him being recognised by Republic of Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni, who called Scannell into his first 40-man squad and later into his final 28-man squad.
