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 business, having bought The Gallery at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, which he later sold. He and his wife now run The Grange, a guest house in Elton on the Hill.
He has two children Neil and Jayne with his late wife Margaret. He has three grandchildren Sophie, Ben and Madeleine.
