Career

Advertisements

Millwall

Sweeney started his career at Millwall, where he made his debut in 2002, but he had to wait another year for his big breakthrough. He ultimately played a major role in the Lions' route to the final of the FA Cup, where he started against Manchester United at the Millenium Stadium. During his time at Millwall Sweeney won six caps for Scotland at Under-21 level and two caps at England School Boys level. Following the cup final appearance, Millwall received a place in the UEFA Cup for the the 2004-2005 season, in which Sweeney played a part in the first round of the tournament, where they were defeated.

Stoke City

On 1 July 2005 Sweeney signed for Stoke City for £250,000, but his debut match against Newcastle Town was ruined as he got injured early into the game and was out for three months. On 31 January 2007 (transfer deadline day) Sweeney joined Yeovil Town on loan and returned to Stoke at the end of March at his request.

On 22 November 2007 he signed a two-month loan deal at Walsall[1] and he returned to Stoke upon the expiration of his loan.

Leeds United

Early in the January 2008 transfer window Stoke accepted an undisclosed bid for the midfielder from Leeds United, with whom he swiftly agreed personally terms, and it was announced that he would sign, subject to a medical the following week.[2][3] He finalised the move on 10 January, joining the club on a two-and-a-half-year deal.[4] Despite starting in the last few games of Dennis Wise reign as Leeds manager, including making his debut away to Crewe and providing the assist for Jermaine Beckford's. winning header Sweeney has failed to established himself under former manager Gary McAllister and new manager Simon Grayson.

Grimsby Town

Sweeney made a loan move in March 2009 to Grimsby Town, signing with Grimsby until the end of the season, along with Bradford City forward Barry Conlon and fellow Leeds player Jonathan Lund.[5]Sweeney went on to be part of a Grimsby side that would make a late surge in the league, and that would eventually stave off the threat of relegation from the Football League. Following the close of the 2008-2009 season and the end of his loan spell, he was released from his contract at Leeds United, following a one and a half year spell at the Yorkshire club.[6] On 3 July 2009, after much speculation, Sweeney re-signed for The Mariners, on a two-year deal.[7] He scored his first goal for the club against Rotherham United F.C. in a 2-1 defeat at home. Sweeney then managed to score a superb volley against his former club Leeds, in the third round of the Football League Trophy at Elland Road. A corner resulted in United keeper Casper Ankergren punching the ball out too Sweeney, who smashed in a left foot volley from the edge of the area, that crashed in off the under side of the cross bar. Unfortunatley, Grimsby lost the game 3-1. On December 18th, Sweeney scored another spectacular goal after hitting a dipping volley from the edge of the in a 1-1 home draw with Morecambe[8]
