A whole hearted defender who came into the Spurs side as a youngster, Guy Butters could not compete with big money singings in defence and went on to other clubs, where he was a valued member of their sides.
It was in season 1988-89 that Guy Butters broke into Terry Venables' Spurs side as a young centre-half. Came into the side to play as one of a back three with Mabbutt and Fairclough and his strength in the tackle had made him a notable performer in the Reserves. Maintained his place in the side through to the start of the following season. Guy impressed enough to win three Under-21 caps for England in the Toulon tournament in 1989.
His debut was against Blackburn Rovers in the League Cup and he scored an own goal, but on his first start, he hit the net at the right end against Wimbledon in a 3-2 victory - a game in which Gary Stevens suffered a serious injury when tackled late by one of the Wimbledon players.
With new singings coming in and moving ahead of Guy, Spurs decided to let him move on and he was sold to Portsmouth in September 1990 for £375,000 and was then out on loan at Southend United before being sold to Gillingham either side of loans to Oxford United and Barnet.
29th August 2002 joined Brighton on a free transfer and was named Player of the Season 2003-2004 and was runner up for the next two seasons. However, as age caught up with the defender, he was released by Brighton on 6th May 2008 and moved to non-league Havant and Waterlooville later that month. Went out on loan to Lewes for a month in January 2009.
Started the 2009-2010 season at Winchester City and scored for the club on his debut before taking over the manager's job in September 2010 when manager Glenn Cockerill was sacked. In the October 2012, having gained promotion to the Southern League for Winchester City, Guy moved on to Brighton and Hove Albion as part of the coaching staff at the Championship club. However, this role did not last long and he was soon back inn the Conference South as assistant manager to Richard Hill at Eastleigh.
