Tall centre-half who made it as far as the Tottenham bench on two occasions, but failed to make a full first team appearance before moving on to Exeter City.
There were hopes at the club that Troy would develop into the new Ledley King, having a coolness on the ball and his ability in the air, that saw him step up to the reserves in 2007, being made captain of the side. However, the necessary skills to take him into the senior side were not thought to have been in his armoury and his spells on loan at Norwich City and Exeter City perhaps proved to the watching Spurs scouts that the player may be more suited to lower league football.
A strong presence in the middle of the back four, Troy was slightly built, but failed to impress on his spell at Carrow Road, returning to Spurs without playing a game for the Canaries and when he went down to Exeter, where former Spurs captain Steve Perryman was Director of Football, he had a good run in the side. In fact, his first loan spell at St. James' Park was in the Grecians side that gained promotion to League One and he was asked back for a six month spell at the start of their campaign in the new division, despite winning a new contract on his return to Tottenham - signing on until 2010.
It was thus a little surprising that in February 2010, Tottenham announced that the deal with Exeter was being made permanent and the fee for the central defender was mooted to be around £50,000. Had been in and out of the first team in his first season, but had become an established member of the side.
InN the summer of 2012, Troy was signed by newly promoted Swindon Town.
