'From Clifton All Whites to the Football league' 29/40

Date of Birth 21st April 1952

One of the original 1963 Clifton All Whites players from the first season in the Young Elizabethan Football League and a protégé of a successful highbank junior school team.

As a player he was a winger and at just 5'2" tall is believed to be Notts County's shortest ever player. He made one League appearance for The Magpies before joining Corby Town and from there he went on to Long Eaton where he subsequently became manager.

He joined Ilkeston from Long Eaton United where he was manager, built a useful team in his first season in charge. Adding some quality players to the squad the signs were brighter at Ilkeston than for some time.

The team won the Derbyshire Senior Cup for the first time in 20 years and more impressively they reached the last 16 of the FA Trophy beating some bigger clubs along the way including Conference clubs Stafford Rangers and Barnet before losing to Enfield.
