Biography:
A product of the excellent Youth set-up at Dungannon Swifts, Sean Webb made his senior debut in December 1999 at 16. Transferred to Ross County in September 2000 he spent a season in their Under-19 team before making his Scottish League debut in August 2001 in a 2-0 win at Dumbarton. He was also awarded Northern Ireland Under-19 caps during this time.

A match-day regular at County from 2001-2004, Webb was also awarded Under-21 caps, making his debut in a 1-0 defeat in Ukraine in September 2003. He was an ever-present at the heart of Roy Millar’s side’s defence through to August 2005 when he won his sixth and final Under-21 cap. He was also recognised at Under-23 level when an experimental side drew 0-0 with Serbia & Montenegro at the Oval in April 2004.

After 60 first team appearances for Ross County, Webb transferred to St Johnston in June 2004. He had a frustrating time at McDiarmid Park. He was sent-off after 68 minutes of his debut and on returning from suspension was ruled out for six weeks by a knee injury. After just one season with the Perth club Webb was released.

In May 2005 Webb returned to Ross County where he rebuilt his confidence. In May 2006 he was included in the Northern Ireland squad that embarked on a US tour after initially being "on stand-by". He made his full international debut as a late substitute against Uruguay and he remained a peripheral member of the Northern Ireland squad through to 2008. With County relegated to the Scottish Second Division (third tier) in 2007 Webb sought a move to a higher level of football. On 31st August, transfer deadline day, he signed for English League Two side Accrington Stanley on an initial four month loan deal with a view to extending it into 2008. At the end of the season Webb was informed to look for a new club.

Following an unsuccessful trial with Dundee, Webb signed with Icelandic side Þór Akureyri (translated as ThorSport). He returned to the UK to sign with Fleetwood Town on 23 October 2008. On 14 November he was released and was without a club, aside from a trial spell with Mansfield, until he signed for Shamrock Rovers, managed by Michael O'Neill, on 25 February 2009. He was released by Rovers that summer.

Webb appeared to drop of the footballing map for a few years while he studied as a physiotherapist in England. He signed with Highland League side Nairn County in April 2012 as he sought a move back to Scotland.
