Career[edit]

Arsenal[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Leytonstone, London,[3] Hoyte signed with Arsenal when he was nine.[4] He featured regularly for Arsenal's U18 and Reserve teams, and was captain of Arsenal's U18 team during 2006–07.[5] He signed as a professional with the club on 10 September 2007.[6]

From 2007 onwards, Hoyte featured for Arsenal on the bench as an unused substitute several times; the first in an FA Cup fifth round replay against Blackburn Rovers on 28 February 2007.[7] He then featured in four of Arsenal's five games in the 2007–08 League Cup campaign, against Newcastle United,[8] but was always an unused substitute.

2008–09 season[edit]

Hoyte played two first-team matches in Arsenal's 2008 pre-season friendly campaign, and was named captain of the Arsenal Reserves side for the 2008–09 season.[6] He made his first-team competitive debut for Arsenal in a League Cup tie against Sheffield United on 23 September 2008, playing at right back for the full 90 minutes, in a match that Arsenal won 6–0.[9] He started in subsequent rounds in the competition against Wigan Athletic and Burnley and also made his Premier League debut against Manchester City on 22 November 2008, in which he was substituted for Aaron Ramsey after 60 minutes.

In December 2008 Hoyte signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal.[4] On 31 December 2008 Hoyte joined Championship side Watford on loan for the rest of the 2008–09 season.[10]

2009–10 season[edit]

In October 2009, Hoyte signed on a one month loan for Brighton & Hove Albion as cover for the injured Andy Whing.[11] Hoyte's loan spell at Brighton was extended until January 2010,[12] and again on 12 January until the end of the 2009–10 season.[13]

2011–12 season[edit]

In late January 2012, Hoyte signed for League Two club AFC Wimbledon on a one-month loan deal.[14]

In April 2012, Hoyte appeared as a trialist for League One club Stevenage, playing for their reserve team in a 6–1 loss to Southend United. On 22 May 2012 it was announced he would become a free agent on 1 July, and he would be released from Arsenal.[15][16]

Dagenham & Redbridge[edit]

2012–13 season[edit]

Following his release from Arsenal it was announced that Hoyte had signed a two-year contract with Dagenham & Redbridge on 10 July 2012, becoming their first signing of the new season.[17] He made his debut on 14 August 2012 against Coventry City in a 1–0 defeat, playing the full 90 minutes.

International career[edit]

Hoyte has played for the England national under-17 football team and was a member of the England squad at the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup. He played in all five of England's matches in the tournament, coming on as a sub three times and starting the games against Brazil and Germany.[18]

In May 2014, he was called up by Trinidad to play on their South American tour which involved fixtures against Argentina in Buenos Aires and Iran in São Paulo, Brazil.[19]
