Christopher "Chris" Dagnall (born April 15, 1986) is an English footballer, currently playing as striker for Rochdale. He wears the number 9 shirt.

Chris Dagnall was born in Liverpool in April 1985 and played for Tranmere Rovers from the age of 13 as a trainee. He was deemed a prolific goalscorer from a young age and scored seven goals in eighteen games for Rovers before he moved to Rochdale in January 2006 aged 20. He made the move permanent in July that year for a fee of £15,000. Dagnall had been given limited opportunities at first team football under Brian Little and Rochdale were quick to snap him up following the departure of main striker Grant Holt to Nottingham Forest. Many see him as a quick striker with a very direct approach to the game.

Chris Dagnall made his Rochdale debut against Stockport County in a 1-0 defeat and scored many vital goals that season to help Rochdale to avoid relegation to the Conference now the Blue Square Premier League. In the season of 2007/2008 Chris Dagnall suffered a broken foot but returned to score 17 goals in 32 league games including a hat-trick against Macclesfield. The following season saw him return from cruciate ligament damage to score a hat-trick in just 6 minutes against Rotherham and then goals in both legs of the play-off semi-finals led Rochdale and Dagnall to the Play-Off final where they lost 3-2 to Stockport County. In the season of 2008/2009 only produced 9 goals from Dagnall but vital goals led Rochdale to yet another Play-Off, this time losing out to Gillingham Town F.C. in the semi-final.

2009/2010 has already seen Dagnall score 12 goals in 21 league games and has become a fan favourite at Spotland. A popular nickname for Chris Dagnall is 'Daggers'.
