Dennis played for Burton Albion, Grantham, Buxton, Matlock Town, Shepshed Charterhouse, Kettering Town, Wellingborough Town and Eastwood Town, before he returned to Grantham in November 1985 to make a lone appearance in the game against Rushden Town.
His playing career continued at Arnold Town and Alorton Town, where he finished for both clubs as the season’s top scorer, winning two league championship medals.
A brief period was then spent with Kelsi in Finland’s Division Three, as their player-coach, after he had become only the third coloured player to achieve the FA’s full coaching licence.

Dennis moved to the United States, where he worked as a Football Coach for Albuquerque Asylum Football Club, New Mexico.
