Career[edit]

Green joined the academy at Fulham in August 1999, gradually working his way through the age groups before breaking into the reserve side in the 2002–03 season.[2] In June 2003, Green signed his first professional contract with the club.[2] Green made his debut for Fulham in September 2003, in a 1–0 defeat to Wigan Athletic in the Football League Cup.[3] His home debut came in January 2004, impressing in a win over Cheltenham Town in the FA Cup.[3] In June 2004, after making his breakthrough into the first team and winning the fans Young Player of the Season award, Green signed a new two-year contract.[4] Green started the 2004–05 season as back-up to Carlos Bocanegra, but was soon given his chance with five appearances during September and October.[5] In January 2005, he joined Football League One side Sheffield Wednesday on a one-month loan deal.[6] Green made three appearances for the Owls, impressing on his debut against Milton Keynes Dons.[7] In the subsequent two games, he featured in a left wing role.[7] In March 2005, Green was on the move again, joined League One side Bournemouth on a one-month loan, making his debut against Walsall.[8] In total, he made three appearances for the Bournemouth before returning to Fulham in April. Green's final appearance for Fulham came in September 2005, a 5–4 win over Lincoln City in the League Cup. In January 2006, he joined League One side Bristol City on loan until the end of the season.[9] He struggled to make an impact at the club and only made two appearances during his loan spell. In May 2006, Green was released by Fulham due to the expiration of his contract.[10]

In June 2006, Green dropped into the non-league game and signed for Conference National side Grays Athletic, as one of manager Frank Gray's first signings.[11] He made his debut for the club on the opening day of the 2006–07 season in a 1–1 draw with Stafford Rangers.[11] He went on to make twenty appearances for Grays scoring twice, away at Tamworth and St Albans City.[11] In January 2007, he was released from his contract.[11] In the same month, Green joined fellow Conference National club Woking on a free transfer, making his debut against Altrincham in a 2–0 win.[11] He spent one-and-a-half years at the club making 48 appearances, before joining fellow Conference Premier side Hayes & Yeading United in the summer of 2009.[12] He was almost an ever-present in his first season with the club making 45 appearances.[12] In his second season with the club Green failed to nail down a regular place in the side, deciding to leave the club in May 2011 after feeling he needed a change.[12] In June 2011, he dropped into the semi-professional game with Conference South side Dartford, signing a one-year contract.[13] He impressed in his first season with the club scoring seven times as the club gained promotion to the Conference Premier via the play-offs.[14] In the summer of 2012, Green signed a new one-year contract with the club.[14] In December 2012, he was sent out on loan to Isthmian League Premier Division side Kingstonian on a one-month deal, after failing to hold down a regular place in the first team.[15] Green returned to Dartford in January 2013, having made four appearances.[16] At the end of the season, he was offered a new contract by Dartford but opted to drop down a division to join Conference South side Basingstoke Town.[17] He was a first team regular throughout his career with Basingstoke, making 46 appearances in his only season as the club finished in mid-table. In May 2014, he opted to rejoin recently relegated Conference South side Dartford on a free transfer.[18]

Personal life[edit]

During his time in the semi-professional game, Green also worked as a telecommunications engineer.[14]
