Sean Connelly (born 26 June, 1970 in Sheffield) is an English former professional footballer, currently working as a physio at Cardiff City.

Career

Connelly began his football career at his local side Hallam before Stockport County manager Danny Bergara offered him a professional contract at the club. One of his career highlights included scoring against Premier League side Middlesbrough in a League Cup tie. His impressive form even generated rumours of a possible move to Liverpool, although this failed to materialise. The defender played under four different managers during his nine-year stay at Stockport - Bergara, Dave Jones, Gary Megson and Andy Kilner. He eventually left in 2001 after former manager Jones persuaded him to join him at Wolves. In 2002, he was inducted into the Stockport County hall of fame.

He signed permanently for Wolves after an initial loan spell in Spring 2001. However, he struggled to hold down a regular first team place during the following season at Molineux and was allowed to join Tranmere Rovers in October 2002.

He quickly established himself at Tranmere and was a regular for two years before manager Brian Laws decided against offering him a new contract, whereupon he moved to Rushden & Diamonds, where he finished his playing career.

After leaving Rushden & Diamonds he trained as a chartered physiotherapist and linked up with Dave Jones again, this time as physio at Cardiff City [ [http://www.cardiffcityfc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/Management/0,,10335~420056,00.html "Cardiff City FC Management"] Cardiffcityfc.co.uk Retrieved on 11 February, 2008] , turning down offers to continue playing in order to take the job.
