Holligan turned down a university scholarship to study music in order to play football. He started his footballing career with Walton and Hersham in August 1997 and at one stage had 18 of 20 Premier League teams representatives watching him play. Having impressed in non-league football he made a £150,000 move from Conference side Kingstonian to the Premiership with West Ham United in November 1998. However he failed to break into the first team, making just one appearance in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield in February 1999 coming on as a late substitute for Joe Cole. Subsequent loan spells with Leyton Orient and Exeter City and a return to Kingstonian failed to reignite his career and he was released by West Ham in 2001. After a trial he had impressed manager Lawrie Sanchez and was signed by Wycombe Wanderers and played there for three seasons until he was released by new Wycombe manager Tony Adams. He also had spells with Crawley Town, Hornchurch, and Havant & Waterlooville.
