Club career

Hull City

Born in Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire,[1] Wiseman had been involved with his hometown club, Hull City, since the age of six, making his senior debut for the Tigers in a 1–1 draw against Kidderminster Harriers in the 2003–04 season. He made only four appearances for City in the 2004–05 season and had a brief loan spell at Boston United. He made an increased number of appearances for Hull in 2005–06, but then spent the first half of the 2006–07 season on loan to Rotherham United, where on 23 September 2006 he scored his first senior goal, in a match against Leyton Orient.[3]


In March, he moved on loan again, to Darlington. He joined Darlington permanently in May 2007.[4]


He signed for Rochdale on a free following his release from Darlington in the summer of 2008. He scored his first goal for Rochdale on 5 December 2009 against Macclesfield Town.[5]


In June 2011, he signed with Barnsley.[6] He scored his first goal for Barnsley on 31 January 2012 against Derby County.[7]

In January 2013, Barnsley accepted a bid from Blackpool, but the deal fell through and he played the remainder of the season at Oakwell. After the departure of Keith Hill, newly appointed manager David Flitcroft used Wiseman as a right wing back due to the £3 million sale of youngster John Stones to Everton. In comparison to his somewhat average performances as a centre half under the Hill regime, Wiseman made the right wing back position his own and became an integral part of the 2013 Reds side that narrowly avoided relegation to League One.

Preston North End

In January 2014 he signed for League One side Preston North End[8] even though he had offers to stay in The Championship.

Scunthorpe United

Wiseman joined Scunthorpe United in May 2015 on a two-year deal.[9]

International career

Wiseman made his debut for Gibraltar in their first UEFA match on 19 November 2013, a 0–0 draw against Slovakia.[10] This was Gibraltar's first game since being admitted to UEFA.[11] Wiseman has also represented England at Under-20 level in the Toulon Tournament, a competition which saw then Hull City and England Under-21s manager Peter Taylor take charge of the England team.
