He started his career with local team Dover F.C. before moving to Sheffield Wednesday at the age of just 19. He played over 200 games whilst at Hillsborough. In 1983 he started a two year stint as back-up for Bruce Grobbelaar at Liverpool. He won the European Cup in 1984, being placed on the substitutes bench in the final.
