The experienced right-winger was born in London’s Bethnal Green and began his career at Watford as a trainee before signing professional contracts in June 1983. After six years and over 100 appearances under Graham Taylor, Peterborough United paid a club record £70,000 for his services. He was influential in their two successive promotions in the early 90’s and was always quick to help out in defence when necessary. He left the Posh in July 1993 after some 234 appearances and 38 goals and joined Bristol Rovers for £140,000. After three years with Rovers and another 119 League appearances he joined Lincoln City in July 1996 playing on for another season before joining Diamonds for a trial period in July 1997. He came on as a 2nd half substitute for the first game of the season, but was not offered a contract and left shortly after that opening game. He decided to retire from the professional game to become a van driver. He continued to play for non league sides Kings Lynn, Stamford, Spalding United, Bourne Town and Deeping Rangers. He was coaching at Peterborough Regional College in 2006.
