Started playing Sunday League football at the age of 11 with Reed Hall, managed by Brian, then spent 3 1/2 seasons with Stanway Villa, under Russel Storey and then 1/2 a season with Stanway Rovers (Alliance League) whilst on trials. this was thanks to a telephone from Mr Cook , his PE teacher at Philip Morant to Malcolm Moore. He was part of the Stanway Villa Crew that did the Quadruple i.e. The Essex Cup, The Suffolk Cup, The League Cup and the Open Cup in 2010/11 (Colchester & District Youth League) Apparantly never been done before.
He was in the car on his way to West Ham trials when the scout turned back as they thought he was a year younger. Then he had Trials at Leyton Orient and he wasn't offered a place.
Only started playing as a Central Defender when offered a contract with Ipswich (March 2012) as he had always played Left Back or Right Back, a box to box player kinda player. He was the second top scorer whilst with Stanway Villa before they moved to the Alliance League. with Stanway Rovers.
