Christian "Chris" Hargreaves (born 12 May 1972) is an English footballer who plays for Oxford United. Early in his career he played as a forward but later converted to a midfield role.[1]


Hargreaves was born in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire, and went to school at Lindsey School in Cleethorpes. He began his football career as a trainee with Grimsby Town in June 1988, turning professional in December 1989.[1] He had a loan spell with Scarborough in March 1993, before leaving Grimsby to join Hull City in July 1993 for a fee of £5,000.[1]

He moved to West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer in July 1995, but made just two first team appearances for the Baggies (both as a substitute). He joined Hereford United on loan in February 1996 until the end of the season when he moved to Hereford on a free transfer. His next move was in July 1998 when he joined Plymouth Argyle on a free transfer. He was a regular in the Argyle side, leaving to join Northampton Town on a free transfer in June 2000.[2] He was Northampton's player of the year in the 2001-02 season, signing a new two-year contract in July 2002.[3]

Hargreaves made over 150 league appearances for Northampton, leaving to join Brentford in June 2004.[4] Hargreaves joined Oxford United on free transfer in July 2005,[5] remaining with Oxford after their relegation to the Conference in 2006. He was released by Oxford in May 2007,[6] signing for newly relegated Torquay United the following month.[7] On 17 May 2009, he scored Torquay's first goal as they beat Cambridge United 2–0 in the Conference National play-off final at Wembley. The victory earned them promotion to The Football League.

In January 2010 Hargreaves completed a return to Oxford United.[8]
