Released by Championship outfit Burnley in May 2006 and a former team mate of TNS frontman Alfie Carter at AFC Telford United who played with Derby County as a schoolboy, before joining Birmingham City as a trainee.
Voted Telford's player of the season in 2004/5, attracting attention from League clubs, with Burnley beating Wolverhampton Wanderers to his signature for a fee of £27,000.
After finding first-team opportunities hard to come by, he was put on the transfer list in May 2006, after making just one full appearance for the Clarets, plus seven from the bench, joining TNS in September 2006.
