Biographical Text

Sheldon was signed by Exeter City in May 2002, arriving at St James’ Park on a free transfer from Scunthorpe United, a club he had started his career with in 1997.

He had made 87 league appearances for the Lincolnshire club, scoring six goals.

His Exeter debut was against Shrewsbury Town as a substitute on the opening day of the season.

Unfortunately Sheldon was a member of the City squad that suffered relegation form the Football League in 2002-03, but nonetheless he went on to stay with City for three years.

He then signed for Kidderminster Harriers in July 2005, but was on the move again a year later to Hereford United.

The move proved to be a unsuccessful one as he only featured in 8 Football League matches for Hereford and by February 2007, his contract was mutually terminated.

Two weeks later Sheldon had linked up with Halesowen Town, however, he left the club at the end of the 2006/07 season, making seven appearances, but failing to find the net during this time.

Sheldon signed for Tamworth in May 2007 and was an instant hit, which eventually led him to being named their Player of the Year.

He signed for King’s Lynn in June 2009 after netting 23 goals for Tamworth in 2008-09 season. The winger then moved to Atherstone Town December 2009.
Following his recovery from his long-term injury, Sheldon joined Bolehall Swifts in 2010, staying one season. In 2011 he joined Bardon Hill returning to Bolehall the following season.
In 2013 he signed for Midland Combination side Polesworth.
