He played for the Watford for 11 years, making 211 league appearances during Watford's most successful years under Graham Taylor and was in goal for the team when they lost 2-0 to Everton in the 1984 FA Cup Final.

At the end of the second of two loan spells with Brentford, he became the first ever loan player to go through a season as an ever-present in league matches, playing 46 matches in 1974–75, a season in which he was also voted the club's Supporters' Player of the Year. After Watford he played for Grimsby Town and Northampton Town and made an exit from league football in 1994 at the age of 40, moving on to Gateshead before retiring in 1998 with Gainsborough Trinity.
