Craig Fagan christened as Craig Anthony Fagan is a professional footballer born on December 11, 1982 in Birmingham, England. He was educated at the South Bromsgrove High School in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. He plays as a striker and occasionally in the wing position for Hull City.
Craig Fagan kicked off his football career by joining the under-nine category of Birmingham City. In 2004, he switched to Colchester United subsequent to a loan spell with his hometown club. His association with the club lasted for a year, during which he made 32 appearances.
Craig Fagan signed a deal with Hull City on February 28, 2005, and made his debut for the club in their win over Tranmere Rovers. Between 2005 and 2007, he played 80 matches for the club, and excelled in his position on the right hand side of the front three.
While still being an active Hull City defender, Craig Fagan moved on to Derby County in January 2007 for a whooping fee of £1 million, where he swiftly made it to the first team of the club. He made his maiden appearance in their win over Sheffield Wednesday, and scored his first goal in the Football Association (FA) Cup match against Leicester City. Craig Fagan also represented the team in the playoff match against West Brom in the 2007 Championship Playoff final. During his union with Derby County, he appeared in 39 matches where he was employed as a wide player, rather than his preferred role as striker.
Hull City had the privilege of having Craig Fagan back in 2008, after his loan period. He eventually went on to be part of Hull City in their victory against Scunthorpe United on March 8, 2008. In the 2008 Championship Playoff final, Craig Fagan came in as a 67th minute substitute in the team’s triumph over Bristol City at Wembley, which was his second consecutive appearance in a Championship Playoff final.
His blistering performances have made him eligible for the English and Jamaican national team in the near future.
