Sean Aidan Raggett (born 17 April 1994) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Rotherham United on loan from Norwich City.

Career[]

Raggett is a product of Gillingham's academy before joining Dover Athletic at 16, where he would go on to make over 150 appearances. In October 2010, he joined Sittingbourne on a dual registration basis.[3] He made his debut for the club as a substitute in the 1–0 defeat at Fleet Town on 30 October 2010.[4] with his full debut coming in the following Saturday's 2–1 home defeat to Leatherhead where he "played well above the standard you would expect from a 16 year old".[5] He made a total of seven starts and one substitute appearance for the club,[6] with his final game coming in their last game of the season, a 2–2 draw at home to Godalming Town.[7] In 2013 he had a loan spell at Isthmian League Division One South side Whitstable Town.[8] It was at Dover, under the guidance of manager Chris Kinnear, that he learned his trade and as well as becoming a talented and uncompromising centre back, began to score trademark headed goals. A crowd favourite, his departure to Lincoln City in 2016 was a big loss to the club but ultimately led to his big break.[9] On the 18 February 2017 Raggett scored an 89th-minute winner against Premier League side Burnley taking Lincoln to the FA Cup Quarter Finals, Lincoln becoming the first non-league team to reach that stage in 103 years.[10][11]

On 18 August 2017, Raggett joined Norwich City on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee. As part of the deal, Raggett rejoined Lincoln City on loan until 1 January 2018.[12] During the following preseason Norwich travelled to Lincoln City, a game in which Raggett scored an “embarrassing own goal”, giving the Imps a consolation goal in a 3-1 loss.[13]

On 25 July 2018, Raggett joined Rotherham United on a season-long loan deal with an option for Norwich to recall him in January.[14]

International career[]

Sean Raggett was called up to the England national C team ahead of a friendly with Republic of Ireland under-21s on 1 June 2015.[15]
