Barnet sold him for a fee of £25,000 to Notts County, where he began his professional career at the age of 26. His was relatively prolific during his season with the Nottingham club in 1990–91, scoring 15 league goals and featuring in almost every league game, playing a key role in their successful promotion challenge. He returned to the club on loan from Barnsley in 1997, where he made a small contribution to their championship winning side that season.
He also played professionally for Plymouth Argyle, Bournemouth, Stoke City (two seasons), Birmingham City, Southend United, Barnsley (where he was a member of the squad promoted to the Premier League), Peterborough United, Leyton Orient, Lincoln City and Scunthorpe United, where he finished his professional career in 1998, having made 231 league appearances. He later returned to non-league football with Wivenhoe Town in Essex, and stopped playing altogether in late 1998.
