Place of birthFreetown, Sierra Leone
NationalityEnglish
Weight73 kg
Height1.80 m
PositionMidfielder

Nottingham Forest boss David Platt appointed Chris as the club captain at the start of 2000-01 and soon afterwards he was switched to play in defence as a sweeper. He adapted to the move without any problems and indeed he showed some inspirational form in his new position.

A very cultured player, his vision and passing were unmatched and he proved to be a deadly marksman from set pieces. Chris finished as Forest's leading scorer with 15 goals.

After a successful loan spell, Chris joined Ipswich Town in December 2003 with a contract to the end of the 2003-04 season.
