Adrian Pettigrew (born 12 November 1986 in Hackney, London, England) is a defender who formerly played for Chelsea's Academy team.


Pre-Chelsea career

Adrian joined Chelsea as a young teenager as an incredibly gifted athlete who was developing into football.

Chelsea career

Making his way through to Under-18 level, Adrian began to establish himself as a central defender of some note. Strong in the air and supremely quick and strong, he adopted the captain's armband en route to becoming a reserve team regular, before captaining that team as well.

After signing professional in 2005, loan spells at Wycombe Wanderers, Rotherham United (loan) and Brentford failed to aid his development and in 2008 he was released at the end of his contract.


Adrian represented England at Under-16 and Under-17 levels.
