Norman Sheldon immigrated to Canada, more specifically Prince Albert, Saskatchewan in 1907 after an outstanding junior soccer career in Scotland. It was the community of Prince Albert where Norman Sheldon continued to play the game he loved until 1929.
Throughout that time period, Norman was chosen three times to represent Canada. But unfortunately, Norman was only able to play for Canada once. Norman was first elected in 1912 for the tour of England. Norman has the honor of being the only Saskatchewan soccer player to selected to Team Canada in which they would compete against the Scots.
An indication of Sheldon's ability is that this team was selected by the Scottish team management following their Canadian cross country tour.
In 1924, Norman was once again picked to be apart of Team Canada who facing off against Australia.
While playing every season in Saskatchewan, Sheldon played in Vancouver for two winters and each year he was selected as a member of the Vancouver All-Star Team.
Norman Sheldon had a distinguished playing career which spanned 23 years. This is a record which has yet to be equalled in Saskatchewan provincial soccer.
