Born: 1968

Birthplace: St. Helier, Jersey, Channel Islands

Position: Left-back

Biography: Was spotted playing in his native Jersey in 1987 by John Hollins but he had to wait two years for his debut. This was on the left side of midfield against Portsmouth. A tireless worker, his first spell at the club came to an end in controversy, when upset at being continually subbed by Ian Porterfield, he threw his shirt onto the ground, and was soon sold to Blackburn soon afterwards for £700,000. Returned six years later as Britain's most expensive defender in a £5 million deal. His second spell was hit by injuries, which caused him to miss the Cup Winners' Cup and FA Cup finals but he did get a winner's medal in 1988. Was swapped with Southampton's Wayne Bridge and £500,000 in 2003. Worked for the BBC and still occasionally appears and presents on BBC2's Working Lunch. In 2006, he joined ABN Bank's UK private banking team in the role of Ambassador for their Sports Desk. Has also appeared on game and reality television shows.
