A former Woking academy graduate in his second spell with the club after re-joining the Cards in the summer of 2021. An experienced centre-back, he made over 250 appearances in all competitions during his first spell with the club, scoring 15 goals. He was part of the team promoted from National League South as champions in 2011/12, playing 33 times in that campaign, before becoming a crucial part of Garry Hill’s successful Woking side of the mid-2010s.

Other highlights from his first spell with the club included making his first-team debut aged 19 in February 2009, being part of the team to take then League One side Brighton & Hove Albion to penalties in the FA Cup in 2010, a dramatic late winner in a 3-2 victory over Bromley in Woking’s promotion campaign, as well as claiming both supporters’ and Manager’s Player of the Year Awards in 2012 and 2013 respectively. His consistently strong performances earned him the affectionate nickname ‘Beast’ from supporters during his time at Kingfield.

His success with the Cards led to him signing for League Two side Crawley Town in the summer of 2015. He spent six years at Broadfield Stadium, making 140 appearances in all competitions, with more than 120 of those coming in the Football League. After struggling with injuries for large parts of his penultimate season with the Red Devils, he re-established himself during his final year at the club, during which he made 31 appearances and helped the club finish in 12th place, their highest placing since their relegation from League One in 2015.

Last season he made 26 appearances in all competitions and scored twice.
