Early life[edit]

Payne was born and grew up in Basingstoke, where he attended Brighton Hill Community College.[3]

Club career[edit]

Payne began his career with Portsmouth and Southampton[4] before moving to West Ham United. He was named as 2008–09 captain of the West Ham Under-18 team,[5][6] but joined Cheltenham Town on an initial one-month loan on 24 September 2008.[7][8] He made his debut for Cheltenham against Stockport County on 27 September 2008, scoring a goal in the 66th minute.[9][10] Payne's loan with Cheltenham Town lasted three months before he returned to West Ham on 22 December 2008.[11] Payne made his West Ham and Premier League debut on 21 March 2009 in a 1–1 away draw against Blackburn Rovers coming on as a 90th-minute substitute for Diego Tristán.[12]

On 22 October 2009 Payne signed for Colchester United on a one-month loan.[13] Payne made his debut for Colchester on 24 October 2009 in a 2–1 home victory against Walsall being fouled for a penalty, which resulted in Colchester's second and winning goal.[14] Payne returned to West Ham on 20 November, having played only three games for Colchester, as manager Aidy Boothroyd decided not to extend his loan.[15]

On 22 January 2010 Wycombe Wanderers confirmed they had signed Payne on an initial one-month loan.[16] Payne made his debut for Wycombe on 23 January scoring in a 1–1 away draw against Southend United.[17]

He returned to West Ham on 25 February 2010.[18] In March 2010 it was announced that Payne's contract with West Ham would not be renewed beyond the end of the 2009–10 season.[19]

On 28 July 2010, Payne signed for Doncaster Rovers on an initial six-months contract after a successful trial period at the club.[20] He made his Rovers debut in the Carling Cup tie against Accrington Stanley on 10 August 2010, scoring his first and Doncaster's only goal in a 2–1 defeat.[21]

On 31 August 2010 Payne joined Oxford United on a one-month loan deal, which was then extended for another three months. Payne subsequently signed a pre-contract agreement with Oxford, making the move permanent.[22][23][24] He scored his first goal for Oxford from a free kick in a 3–1 home victory against Northampton on 23 October 2010.[25]

In January 2012 it was confirmed that Payne would be joining Aldershot Town on loan, initially for a month but later extended to the end of the season.[26] On 5 March, the move was made permanent on a free transfer.[27]

On 24 June 2013, shortly after his release from prison, Payne signed for Woking.[28] Payne played 95 league and cup games for Woking. He left the Conference Premier side at the end of the 2014–15 season to join Eastleigh. After a successful debut season with Eastleigh, Payne decided to reject a new one-year deal to venture into The Football League.[29]

On 26 May 2016, Payne joined Crawley Town on a two-year deal.[30] On 6 August 2016, Payne made his Crawley debut in a 1–0 victory against Wycombe Wanderers, playing the full 90 minutes.[31]

Personal life[edit]

In December 2012 Payne was sent to prison for twelve months following a conviction for actual bodily harm and common assault following an incident in Guildford town centre in May 2012; upon conviction Aldershot terminated Payne's contract.[32][33]
