Career[edit]

Banks is the son of former professional footballer Ian Banks,[2] and made his senior debut for Rotherham United in May 2011, scoring in his first appearance.[3] In January 2011 he joined Northern Premier League Division One side Sheffield on work experience.[4] In November 2011 he signed for Buxton in the Northern Premier League Premier Division on loan.[5]

In January 2012 he again went out on loan, this time to Stalybridge Celtic. He made his debut on 14 January 2012 in an FA Trophy match against Guiseley. He made 11 appearances for Stalybridge.[6]

He was released by Rotherham in May 2012 and in July went on trial with newly-promoted League Two side York City and Conference North side Gainsborough Trinity.[7][8][9] He has played for four clubs during the 2012–13 season starting out at Gainsborough Trinity in August 2012, before joining Scarborough Athletic later in the 2012–13 season.[10][11] He moved to North Ferriby United in January 2013 and ended up at FC United of Manchester in March.[12]

In September 2013, Banks signed a contract with Chesterfield, which will expire at the end of the 2014–15 season.[13] In April 2014 it was announced that Banks would be ruled out of the rest of the 2013–14 season through injury.[14]
