Birthplace: Stepney, Greater London
Biography: A member of Terry Venables exciting young Palace side dubbed the 'Team of the Eighties', he was John Hollins first signing for the club on a free transfer. Wretched luck with injuries kept him from being a first team regular for much of his time at Stamford Bridge. He impressed on his home debut against Coventry City only to lose his place through injury. Competition from Kevin McALISTER and Mickey Hazard restricted his appearances in his first season, while fitness problems limited him to 13 games in his final two seasons before his contract was cancelled in the summer of 1988. A Republic of Ireland international, he emigrated to Australia but then returned to coach disadvantaged kids in his native East London.
