Although approaching 29 years of age before he played top-level football, his was a signing that underlined the quality of then manager Dave Sexton's judgement. A stylish and creative midfielder, he came to be seen as the final piece in the jigsaw of an exciting and attacking QPR team. The following 1975/76 season saw them come close to winning the League title, being pipped by a point by Liverpool.
After three years at Loftus Road he moved to Derby County in October 1977 in exchange for Leighton James. After a further spell at Notts County he played for a time in the U.S. On returning, he became the player-manager of Kettering Town, before retiring from the game.
In retirement he turned his hand in to the hotel owner/management business after having bought 'The Gallery' in Trent Bridge Nottingham which he has since sold. He and his wife now run The Grange guest house in Elton on the Hill.
