Biography: He started his United career as understudy to Gary Bailey but he struggled to get a regular place in the starting line, and was sent to Middlesbrough for first team experience. After becoming a Fans' Favourite, they failed to match United's £80,000 asking price and he finally got a chance when Bailey broke a finger. But Boro raised the finance to secure his signature and he returned to Boro as Academy goalkeeping coach, and has since been promoted to coach the senior keepers at the club.
