After loan spells at Wycombe Wanderers and Grimsby Town, he made the permanent switch to York City in 2010 having had a successful time on loan with The Minstermen.

Going on to help the club lift the FA Trophy and return to The Football League, where he finished their first season back in the League as top scorer with ten goals to his name.

His next port of call was Cambridge United, from where he was loaned out to Dagenham & Redbridge before returning to help The U’s get back into The Football League via the play-offs.

He returned to Dagenham & Redbridge on a permanent basis in the summer of 2014 and stayed at the club for two years before linking up with Grimsby Town at the start of the current campaign.

“I am delighted to be able to add a striker of this quality to the squad,” said Boro boss, Tommy Wright of the former England Under-19 and C International. “He has a great pedigree and arrives here from a Football League club.

“I came through the ranks with him at Leicester City; he’s four years younger than me but was always prolific during his time at the club.

“He was extremely highly thought of and made his first-team debut at the age of just 15 as well as being capped by England at various youth levels.
“We also played together at Grimsby Town and have always got on well and stayed in touch over the years.

“He is a good finisher with great movement and pace. He’s played out wide for the majority of his career but I see him as a central striker.”
