Arrived in England in August 1995 to join Leeds United. Only made a single bench appearance with the Elland Road side and spent loan spells at Crystal Palace and Bradford City. The 6'4 keeper returned to his native country in 2001 to join Supersport United and Jomo Cosmos before he was given a 2nd chance in England with Sheffield Wednesday. As understudy to Kevin Pressman he made 7 appearances last season but a hernia injury saw him lose his place and he was released at the end of the campaign. A trial with Crewe Alexandra came to nothing and he joined Rushden & Diamonds in October 2003. Again an untimely injury, this time a shoulder problem, prevented progress at Nene Park and despite a possibilty of returning to Huddersfield the South Wales based player choose to join City. He has also made 2 appearances for South Africa and made their squad for the 1998 World Cup. After sitting on the bench for the opening game against France a knee injury in training cut his involvement short. Several minor injuries disrupted his time with Bath but he proved to be one of the best City keepers for many years. Left the club in May 2009 ahead of emmigrating to Australia later in the year.
