The Englishman played in the Singapore S.League for one season in 2001 and scored a remarkable 12 goals in 17 appearances.

He went on to build a career in the lower English leagues but his career took off in 2009 when he signed for Norwich City. He stayed at the club for five years and netted 68 goals in 154 appearances, to earn a place in the heart of the Canaries supporters.

The retired striker is now part of the Norwich academy setup but announced in May this year that he has agreed a wrestling deal to fight at a 2019 event (Fightmare 3).
