He scored one goal for Charlton in eight appearances and after some loan spells at various clubs went into the non-League game with Margate in 2002.
He went on to play for Stevenage Borough and Crawley Town whilst they were still in non-League football and later Ebbsfleet United before returning to the Football League with Southend United and then achieved great success with Brentford securing promotion from League Two in 2008/09, scoring 40 goals in 111 appearances for the Bees.
He later went to MK Dons, Leyton Orient and Oldham Athletic.
In 2014/15 he returned to the non-League game with Barnet, becoming club captain as the side won promotion from the National League.
A year later he went to Boreham Wood and then a year after that in the summer of 2016 to Greenwich Borough, helping them settle in the Bostik League for the first time and scored 18 goals in thirty-three appearances.
