Ian Sneddon was born in Duntocher, Scotland on November 30, 1946. He started his career in Clydebank Schools football. Ian then progressed to Drumchapel Amateurs.

Ian stayed with Hearts until the end of the 1974-1975 season, when he played in 6 Scottish League games.

In May 1975 he joined Denver Dynamos in the North American Soccer League. He played in 21 NASL games and had one assist during the 1975 season.

After the 1975 North American Soccer League season he returned to Scotland and joined Greenock Morton.

During his two seasons with Greenock Morton he played in 23 Scottish League games.

The 5’10” and 11st right-back joined Windsor Stars in April 1977. He made his debut for the Stars on May 1, 1977 against London City. In his first game his new club lost by a narrow 1-0 margin.

His greatest game for the Stars was probably when he played against Portuguese star Marinho on Sunday May 15. Marinho was the biggest signing by any of the NSL clubs at the start of the 1977 NSL season when he joined the Toronto First Portuguese.

The headline in the Windsor Star newspaper the following day read “Sneddon steals the show”. The paper described how “he (Marinho) was completely outplayed by Sneddon”. The match finished in a 1-1 tie.

He helped Windsor Stars to a fourth place finish in the 1977 National Soccer League season.
