Tony, 37, came through the youth ranks at Millwall FC, making his first team debut for the club in 2003. A versatile defender who has played centrally and at left back throughout his career, Tony would go on to make over 300 appearances across 4 spells for the South London side, and was part of the team promoted from League One via the play-offs in 2010 and 2017, captaining the side in the latter final as The Lions defeated Bradford City 1-0 at Wembley.
In the period of his career away from The Den, Tony would remain in the Capital to play for the likes of Crystal Palace, Leyton Orient and Brentford, enjoying success with The Bees in the 2013-14 season as they secured promotion from League One by finishing runners up, with Tony awarded the ‘Player’s Player of The Year’ accolade at the end of the campaign.
After his final spell with Millwall concluded in January 2018, Tony went on to play for Bristol Rovers and Crawley Town, making nearly a century of appearances for each club, and is now looking forward to continuing his career with a new challenge:
“I’m pleased to have joined Dorking Wanderers. I’m really looking forward to meeting the lads but more importantly, I can’t wait to get started on Saturday.”
Manager Marc White adds the following:
“Tony’s experience speaks for itself, with over 750 league appearances mainly in the Championship and League One – he is the most experienced player ever to join Dorking Wanderers. He is a leader, a proven winner and warrior having gained a popular status everywhere he has gone. He brings a wealth of leadership qualities, not least his ability to organise on the pitch and we are flattered to get his signature.”
Tony will wear the No27 shirt and will be available for selection for this Saturday’s National League game away to Bromley.
