859 Aaron Wilbraham

Biography

The archetypal big man up front, “Albie” Wilbraham joined City in Summer 2004 for a £100,000 fee to add goals to Tigers’ League One promotion challenge. His early form was mixed and he had a month on loan at Oldham to find his feet. When he returned over the festive period he found the net a couple of times, including a goal at Edgeley Park against his former club Stockport. But was soon again out of the first team and left the Tigers in Summer 2005.

Raised in the mean streets of Knutsford, Wilbraham joined Stockport County as a youth and contributed occasional goals during a seven year term as support striker.

Wilbraham joined Milton Keynes Dons in 2005 and over the next six years he carved out a reputation as a lower league goalscoring big man and as he entered his thirties he enjoyed a late-career renaissance. He played at a higher level for Norwich and Crystal Palace, assisting both clubs to Premier League promotions and playing a few top level games for both. In 2014 Albie joined Bristol City and in three seasons he was a regular goalscorer in the second tier. After a season at Bolton, Wilbraham played for Rochdale in 2018/19 and as he approached his 40th birthday in June 2019 he renewed his Rochdale contract for a further year.
