He captained the Socceroos from 1995 after Paul Wade retired.

He broke through into the Adelaide City senior team in 1984 at the age of 18 and formed the heart of the defence alongside Milan Ivanovic from 1989.

He won the championship with Adelaide City for the first time in 1986 and also in 1991/92 and 1993/94. Excellent in the air and very solid on the ground his reliability and resilience marked him out as an exceptional defender.
