FC United Bring In Much-Travelled Striker
08-12-2018 I News Headlines
Vanarama National League North club FC United of Manchester have signed experienced forward Chris Sharp.

The son of ex-Everton and Scotland star, Graeme Sharp, the 32-year-old joins the Red Rebels from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division side Stalybridge Celtic.

 

Although born in Liverpool, he started his career at Rhyl in Wales.

 

He graduated to the first-team but suffered a broken leg in a UEFA Cup game against Suduva.

 

On his release in 2008, he signed for amother Welsh Premier outfit, Bangor City, scoring a hat-trick in his second game against Porthmadog.

 

He went on to score 20 goals in 23 games, before he was side-lined with a broken arm. Upon his return he made another 18 appearances, scoring 13 more goals, taking his totals to 33 goals in 41 appearances, including a Welsh Cup final that Bangor won.

 

In 2010, he signed for The New Saints for an undisclosed fee and was top scorer in his first season and played in the Champions League, scoring against Anderlecht.

 

Suspensions and injuries curtailed his second season. At the start of the 2011/12 season, he made the switch to AFC Telford United, who paid £23,000 for his services.

 

He scored 15 goals for the Bucks, before signing for Hereford United in 2013.

 

He made 56 appearances for the Bulls and scored 6 goals, before being sent on loan to Lincoln City in 2013, where he scored twice in 5 appearances.

 

In 2014 he joined Stockport County, going on to score 5 times in 31 appearances and getting a call up to the England C team.

 

At the start of the 2015/16 season, Sharp moved back to Wales to join Colwyn Bay, although in the November, he was lured to join the revolution at Salford City, but after just a month, moved to Marine AFC where he finished the season, scoring twice in 23 appearances.

 

The start of the 2016/17 season saw him in the National League North with Bradford Park Avenue where he scored 5 goals in 42 appearances.

 

The start of the 2017/18 campaign saw him move to Alfreton Town where he scored 7 times in 25 appearances.

 

Another move came at the start of this season, this time to Tameside, where he joined Curzon Ashton.

 

With first-team football not forthcoming at the Tameside Stadium, he moved across the borough to join Stalybridge in September.

 

Manager Neil Reynolds told http://www.fc-utd.co.uk: “I am delighted to secure the services of Chris Sharp. He is a player that I have long admired and was someone I tried to get to the football club in my first week.

 

“I have pursued Chris for the last few weeks and I am really happy that he has accepted the chance to play for FC United. He will give us another option and a different dimension to our attacking play. I am really looking to working with Chris. Welcome to Broadhurst Park”.
