This midfielder has represented his country at all levels; in 2001 even getting onto the bench for the full international against the Czech Republic after playing half a game for the Under-21's the evening before !!

Ciaran is another who's position has changed at Tottenham within the last couple of years.  Starting out as a midfielder in 1997, he was made a professional in 1999 and worked his way through the sides to get a berth in the reserves during 2000-2001.  However, to do so, his chosen place of right sided midfield has given way to the occasional appearance in the back four.  Toner is adaptable enough to play in this position, but his quality of passing and running on the blind side of defences may make him more suited to midfield.

Spurs let him go towards the end of the 2001-02 season, firstly to Bristol Rovers, where they didn't come up with a contract for him, then, returning to London, he did get a deal with Leyton Orient.

Left Orient to join Lincoln City and following a training ground bust-up when Toner was alleged to have used a racist insult and ended with him needing hospital treatment, he then moved to Grimsby Town, where he had more success and in May 2007 signed a new two year deal to keep him at the Mariners.

On 27th June 2008, his contract with Grimsby was cancelled by mutual consent and in that summer, he joined Rochdale on a two year deal.  Despite being part of the squad that gained Rochdale promotion to League One, he was released and joined Harrogate Town in the Conference North in August 2010.  Staying for a season, he then spent a year at Guiseley, before coaching at Rotherham United in 2012-13 and returned to playing for Gainsborough Trinity for the 2013-14 season, being released at the end of the campaign.
