Biography


A former Liverpool trainee who moved to Burscough following his release by the Merseyside club, the winger soon attracted the attention of scouts and moved to Dundee for £15,000 in 1999.

Under Jocky Scott, Michael made his debut on the opening day of the 1999-2000 season, coming on as a sub for Lee sharp in the 2-1 derby defeat by United at Tannadice. All told that season, he made six substitute appearances, scoring once - in the 2-1 home defeat by St Johnstone in what was his last league start in September 1999.

Included in the first team squad when Bonetti took over, he only made one more start - in the League Cup tie against Montrose - and the last of his thirteen appearances was from the bench in a 3-2 win at St Johnstone.

With things not having worked out as planned over the border, he did have a spell on trial with Stockport County, but that didn't come to anything and he was loaned to Montrose at the start of the following season, making four appearances for the Links parkers.

Michael then returned south and joined Unibond Premier side Lancaster City before signing for Witton Albion in December 2003.
