He started as an apprentice at Bournemouth and has also played for Havant Town and Fareham Town. A positive asset to the team, he has kept a regular starting place in an increasingly contested midfield line up, despite sporadic injury problems.

Now entering his seventh season with the Hawks, Neil is the longest serving player in the side and with 223 appearances under his belt is chasing James Taylorís record of 295.
In October 2006 Neil signed for Winchester City in pursuit of regular football.
