1998-99 : 30 apps, 3 goals.

Was with Sligo from June 1996 and to the end of the year before coming to Dundalk had made 43 appearances for Sligo and had scored 12 goals, 7 in the League. He had played his part in Sligo’s League Cup victory over favourites Shelbourne, but could not prevent Dundalk from being relegated.

Previous to that he had featured with two English League teams—Doncaster 1993-95 32 apps, 2 gls: and Scarborough 1995-96 14 apps.

According to his Doncaster web site profile he was a “tenacious midfielder who would still be trying to win the ball well after the game was finished.”

He got some support on a foot.ie thread called “Who Was The Hardest Player To Grace The LOI” but in this category he was never going to get the Dundalk vote, not with candidates like Harry McCue, Dermot Keely and Tom McNulty. Dundalk fans did support him on the Oriel Web site in a thread “Players Who Did Not Live Up To Their Hype”.
