Career[edit]

Despite being a Liverpool fan,[2] Heath was signed by Manchester United as a schoolboy. After being released by United, he signed for Nottingham Forest.

On 26 June 2009, Heath signed for Lincoln City on an initial six-month loan deal.[4] However, the need for a hernia operation[5] restricted Heath to just five league and cup appearances for the club before he returned to the City Ground on the completion of his loan.[6] On 19 January 2010 he agreed to leave Forest by mutual consent.[7] On 8 February 2010, along with James Reid, he began a one-week trial with Exeter City.[8] In November 2010 Heath joined Hereford United on-loan initially for a month but this was later extended until the end of the season.He signed a 2-year deal to stay at Hereford in June 2011 following his release from Exeter City.[9] In the summer of 2013, Heath joined Chester.
