2003 - 2005            midfielder

Born on 20th October 1986 in Tooting, London, England.

A gifted winger, with pace and skill was signed as a 14-year-old by Tottenham who paid Charlton 450,000 for the England schoolboy international on a five-year professional contract, with the player signing a lucrative contract with adidas at the same time.  Compared to Michael Owen and David Beckham, Owen had a lot to live up to while he learnt the game in the Spurs Academy.

As a fifteen year old, he was playing in a schools cup final at Highbury and came to the nation's attention when he scored a goal just four seconds into the game from the centre circle.

Played at all levels for England from under-15s to under-18s and was selected for all the pre-season friendlies under Jacques Santini at the start of the 2004-05 season, but his career did not progress once Martin Jol took over and he got the last two years of his contract paid off so that he could leave White Hart Lane. 

Price joined Lewes in non-league football, without payment, to try to revive his career, under the management of his uncle Steve King.  He played 11 times before being offered a one-year professional contract with Swedish first division side Sundsvall.


Before joining the Swedish club, he said, "I was at Tottenham for ages but they treated me badly. At the end I thought, 'I don't want to be here' so I left."

Moved on to play in Finland, with a short time spent at La Liga club Deportivo La Coruna and then returned to England to turn out for non-league Northwich Victoria in 2009.  Was last heard of playing for Farnborough Town in 2011.
