Biography: One of the game's modern day 'hard men' who gave everything for the cause during his time on the pitch. Was signed by Ian Porterfield as a key part of his rebuilding plans, which allowed Andy Townsend to get further forward. Always a target for referees, which meant that he missed the Blues' FA Cup quarter final against Sunderland, which ended in defeat. His crowning moment came when crashing home a 25- yard stunner to help earn a win against Liverpool at Anfield. In 1992, he found himself shipped out of the club when Porterfield turned to Nigel Spackman to perform his midfield role. 13 months after arriving, he was sold to Wimbledon for £700,000, generating a £125,000 profit. Worked as a hod carrier before turning pro and has since become a popular Hollywood film star! Now splits his time between Los Angeles and Hertfordshire. In one of many TV appearances, he took part in Celebrity Big Brother in 2010.
