Club career

Sherriff's first professional club was Leeds United, who spotted him playing for the New South Wales academy team. He spent three years at the club, but only tasted first team football on loan at Rochdale in 2002. Sherriff was released by Leeds during the club's financial crisis in 2003, and signed for Danish Superliga side AGF Aarhus. After three years in Denmark, he was signed by Tranmere Rovers at the start of the 2006/07 season after impressing manager Ronnie Moore on trial and was made club captain, making over 40 appearances in his debut season. During the 2007/08 season, injuries to the club's first choice wingers Steve Davies and Chris Shuker and the arrival of Andy Taylor at left back saw Sherriff frequently appearing on the left side of midfield.

As of March 9 2008 rumours circulating on the Australian Football Magazine website FourFourTwo suggested that Sheriff might return to Australia to play with Sydney FC.

On 28 June 2008 he signed for Football League Two team Shrewsbury Town on a two-year deal. He scored a goal on his debut, in the 4-0 win over Macclesfield Town on 9 August 2008.
