Club careerEdit

Born in Nantwich,[2] Piggott had spells with Rochdale and the club he supported, Everton,[2] before joining Scottish Championship club Dundee United in September 2017.[3] He went onto make his first-team debut for United in a Scottish Challenge Cup tie against Alloa Athletic, playing for 71 minutes in a 3–1 victory.[4]

After one further first team appearance for Dundee United, Piggott was released and returned to England, joining Northern Premier League club Warrington Town in January 2018.[5] He scored an equalising goal on his debut in an FA Trophy defeat to National League South club Wealdstone.[6] Four days later, he scored two goals against Matlock Town.[7] Piggott's form at Warrington led to a transfer to EFL Championship club Wigan Athletic in August 2018.[8]

After playing for Wigan's under-23 side in pre-season, Piggott was loaned to League Two club Morecambe until January 2019[9] and went onto make his debut during a 3–2 defeat to Bury.[10] Three days later, he scored his first goal for the club during an EFL Trophy defeat to Carlisle United, giving Morecambe a 2–1 lead in the 24th minute.[11]

In January 2019, Piggott joined National League North club Altrincham on loan scoring his first goals for the club in a 6-0 thrashing of Curzon Ashton.[12][13]
