Biography

Started his career at Wimbledon where he was part of the side that took them into the Football League.

Played 15 league games for the Dons then moved on to Aylesbury where he spent three seasons with the Ducks.

He was well known for 'Drilling his Tilley ball' more at players rather than just clipping it in so it was easier to control.

Classic example was when Kevin smashed the ball at the late Billy Holmes' at chest height, so, not wanting to take the full force of the 'Tilley Driller', Billy "Ducked" letting the ball go past him into the waiting centre half.

Went on to play for Hayes and Wycombe after leaving United.
