CareerEdit

Early careerEdit

Born in Bradford, West Yorkshire, Hanson played youth football for Huddersfield Town (where he was let go at the age of 15 for being too small[3]), as well as Bradford City.[4][5] He began his senior career playing semi-professional non-league football with Eccleshill United and Guiseley, balancing his football career with a job in a local Co-operative supermarket in Idle, Bradford.[6] Bradford City fans later sang a song about Hanson's supermarket work.[7] Hanson scored 44 goals 91 games in his two seasons with Guiseley.[8][9]

Bradford CityEdit

2009–10 seasonEdit

Hanson signed his first professional contract with Bradford City in July 2009,[10] with his transfer fee set by a tribunal hearing six months later at a figure close to £7,500, a sell-on clause and the agreement of a friendly between the two sides.[11] Hanson made his debut for Bradford on the opening day of the 2009–10 season, on 8 August 2009, in a 5–0 defeat against Notts County.[12][13] Hanson scored his first goal for Bradford on 22 August 2009, in a 5–4 victory away at Cheltenham Town.[14][15] Hanson won the Player of the Year award during his first season at Bradford City,[16] and was rewarded with a new, improved contract for the next four years.[17]

2011–12 seasonEdit

In February 2012, Hanson suffered a groin injury, and was estimated to miss six weeks of matches.[18] During the 2011–12 season, Hanson scored 14 goals, his highest tally to date in three years as a professional.[19]

2012–13 seasonEdit

In October 2012, teammate Andrew Davies stated his belief that Hanson's goals would help the club achieve promotion.[20] He scored Bradford City's goal in the second leg League Cup semi-final tie against Aston Villa, and was named Man Of The Match for the second leg, helping Bradford to the League Cup final.[21] Hanson had a broken toe prior to the match, and received an injection for it 15 minutes before kick-off.[22] Hanson's performance was praised by former manager Steve Kittrick.[23]

Hanson played in the 2013 Football League Cup Final; after the match, he said he believed Bradford City would return to Wembley via the League Two play-offs.[24] Hanson scored two goals in the next three League matches, reaching 10 goals for the season,[25] and later that month he stated that the club had to win both forthcoming Easter games.[26] In April 2013, Hanson spoke of the "buzz" around the club as they mounted a play-off challenge.[27] On 5 May, he scored a vital goal in the second leg of the play-off semi-final against Burton Albion, helping Bradford overcome a 3–2 deficit from the home leg to win the game 3–1 and the tie 5–4 on aggregate.[28][29] In the Final at Wembley, Hanson scored in a 3–0 victory against Northampton Town,[30] and later spoke about how he was looking forward to playing in a higher division.[31]

2013–14 seasonEdit

Ahead of the 2013–14 season, Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson said that only a high-money bid would persuade the club to sell either Hanson and fellow striker Nahki Wells.[32] In July 2013, Hanson was praised by former Bradford City left-back Wayne Jacobs,[33] and in August 2013 Hanson spoke positively of his partnership with teammate Nahki Wells.[34] Wells has also publicly praised his strike partnership with Hanson,[35] as has journalist Simon Parker, who described them as "[one of] the best front pairs that League One has to offer."[36] Hanson has also been praised by manager Phil Parkinson.[37] In October 2013 Hanson spoke about his use of a mind coach.[38] On 29 November 2013 he signed a new contract with the club, taking him up to the end of the 2016–17 season,[39][40] and becoming the first player at the club to sign a new contract that season.[41] In December 2013 fellow Bradford City player Andrew Davies described Wells and Hanson as the best strike pair in the division.[42] The partnership ended when Wells was sold to Huddersfield Town in January 2014.[43] In February 2014, after Hanson scored his 10th goal of the season, Davies spoke about Hanson's increase in playing form.[44] In March 2014, Hanson spoke about new strike partner Aaron McLean's lack of goals for the club,[45] while Hanson himself had scored 6 goals in 9 games.[46] That same month Hanson was revealed as the player in 3 divisions of the Football League who had committed the most fouls in the 2013–14 season to date; he was defended by manager Phil Parkinson.[47] Throughout March and April, Hanson suffered a number of minor injuries which prevented him from playing,[48][49] making only 1 appearance in the past 7 games as of 25 April 2014.[50][51] His work-rate during that season was later praised by former teammate Andy Gray.[52]

2014–15 seasonEdit

Ahead of the 2014–15 season the club implemented new a playing style and match tactics, and Hanson stated he was looking forward to showing that he was able to adapt to it.[53] In August 2014, after scoring five goals in the season to date, Hanson entered the club's top ten all-time scorer list.[54] In September 2014 it was announced that Hanson was suffering from a thigh injury, and could miss up to 5 matches.[55] In December 2014, following his return from injury, Hanson was kept out of the starting line-up by Jon Stead and Billy Clarke.[56] In January 2015 Hanson praised Stead,[57] while later that month he was himself praised by ex-Bantam striker Dean Windass.[58] Following Bradford City's shock victory in the FA Cup over Chelsea, Hanson was praised by their captain John Terry.[59] In April 2015 Hanson declared that he was aiming to score 20 goals a season for the club; at that point he was on 11 goals, having not scored for two months.[60] In May 2015 the club rejected an undisclosed transfer bid for Hanson from Millwall.[61] Despite the rejection, Millwall stated they were still interested in signing Hanson,[62] and Bradford City turned down a second bid a few weeks later.[63] Bradford City delayed any possible transfer while they searched for a replacement,[64] although Hanson later stated he wished to remain at the club.[65][66] Hanson credited manager Phil Parkinson with persuading him to stay at the club.[67]

2015–16 seasonEdit

At the start of the 2015–16 season, Hanson discussed his striker partnership with new summer signing Devante Cole.[68] He was dropped from the starting XI in October 2015, following a poor performance in a previous game, having played every game up to that point of the season.[69] After an injury to his replacement Steve Davies, Hanson returned to the first-team later that month,[70] scoring in his first game back in the starting XI.[71] In November 2015 he suffered an ankle ligaments injury in an FA Cup game.[72]

On 13 February 2016 he made his 300th appearance for the club, scoring two goals in the process.[73][74] On 23 April 2016 he scored a hat-trick as City beat promotion rivals Walsall 4–0; it was his first professional hat-trick,[75] having previously not started a game since 5 March.[76][77]

2016–17 seasonEdit

After playing in the first two games of the 2016–17 season, Hanson missed over a month of play due to a calf problem.[78][79] He scored his first goal of the season in a 3–2 victory against AFC Wimbledon on 29 October, scoring twice.[80]

Sheffield UnitedEdit

On 21 January 2017 Sheffield United made an offer for Hanson.[81] The transfer was completed on 24 January 2017.[82] He stated that he was looking forward to playing against his old club.[83] He scored on his debut in a 4–0 win over AFC Wimbledon on 4 February 2017.[84] In August 2017 and November 2017 he was linked with a return to Bradford City, although the club's manager Stuart McCall dismissed the rumours.[85][86]

Hanson made his debut in the Championship in November 2017, against Fulham.[87]

He moved on loan to Bury in January 2018.[88][89] He was transfer-listed by Sheffield United at the end of the 2017–18 season.[90]

AFC WimbledonEdit

On 26 June 2018, Hanson left Sheffield United by mutual consent, and joined AFC Wimbledon.[91][92][93][94]

Hanson struggled with minor injuries during the 2018–19 season.[95] Wimbledon's last game of the season was away at Hanson's former club Bradford City.[95]

In June 2019 he was linked with a possible return to Bradford City, but the link was denied by City manager Gary Bowyer.[96]

Grimsby TownEdit

In June 2019 he signed for Grimsby Town, on a two-year contract.[97][98]

Personal lifeEdit

Hanson attended Beckfoot School in Bingley from 1999 to 2004.[99] Hanson and his girlfriend Jodie had their first child, a daughter named Lexie, in November 2012.[100] Lexie was blessed the day after her father scored in the League Two Playoff Final at Wembley.[101] Jodie is a teacher who remained in the north when Hanson moved to London to play for Wimbledon.[102]
