He played 28 games the following season, but found himself out of the first team squad the next season. He went on a two month loan to Conference side Salisbury City in August 2009, before returning to Vale Park, then in March 2010, went to Kidderminster Harriers on loan until the end of the season.

He was released in the summer after 36 appearances for Port Vale, and joined Southend United in August 2010 on a one year deal.
