Although he was never a major domestic cup winner he did win promotion to the Premier League with Portsmouth, West Ham United and Burnley but he also suffered relegation with the Turf Moor side.

Hugely popular as a player at Swindon Town, he agreed a new 12-month deal as a player-coach for the 2018-19 season. He had already taken one game as interim manager following the resignation of David Flitcroft in March 2018.

Upon retiring from playing he passed his UEFA Pro licence and joined Tottenham Hotspur where he currently works within their academy as head coach of their under-18’s side.
