I have been fortunate enough to do what many people dream of doing, playing professional football for a living. I started off playing for Elland Athletic in the Halifax league as an 8 year old.
After making 30 appearances for the club I was bought by Ossie Ardiles (World Cup winner with Argentina ) for West Bromwich Albion.
I then moved on to Grimsby Town where I became their record signing,
After speaking with a number of clubs when my contract ended I decided to join Barnsley on a four year contract. I finished my career with a short spell at Rochdale and a final season at York City before moving into full time coaching.
I played over 500 first team games scoring 69 goals over a 17 year period as a professional footballer.
