British

Born in London, Alex joined Oxford United whilst playing for St. Edmunds at the age of 7 and he went all the way through Oxford's Centre of Excellence helping them win the U18's Youth Team Championship in the 2006-07 season.

At age 16 whilst still at school he was called up to the Oxford first team and given the number 45 shirt by then manager Jim Smith. During his time in the first team Alex played for 3 different managers - Jim Smith, Darren Patterson and Chris Wilder.

Alex scored his first senior league goal in January 2008 at 17 years old in a 4-0 home win against Altrincham. He also scored Oxford United’s only goal in a 1-2 home defeat to Harry Redknapp’s FA Cup winning Portsmouth side beating David James with a left foot volley.

Alex joined non league Brackley Town on the 8th March 2008 to gain experience scoring 3 goals in 5 starts. Another loan to local side Oxford City in early 2009 was prolific ; Alex netted 12 goals in 16 starts.

Alex then joined - along with fellow Full Contact client Mickey Demetriou - the Glenn Hoddle Academy in Jerez, Spain where he developed under the coaching he received not only from Hoddle but also Graham Rix, Dave Beasant and Nigel Spackman. Through the academy, in the 2010-11 season, he signed for Spanish club Jerez Industrial scoring on his debut. However a serious break to his jaw during a game vs. Los Palacios prematurely ended his season, in which he had already scored an impressive 13 goals in all competitions, 11 of which were in the league.

Alex would then begin a period in Belgium, starting at 2nd division side KVK Tienen. On August 5, 2012, he signed for K.R.C. Mechelen, where he would go on to score 10 goals in 27 appearances. In July 2013, Alex moved to another Belgian club - Heist - but his stay was very brief as after only a month and a half, the Italian club A.C. Monza Brianza 1912 reached an agreement with Heist to acquire Alex's services (along with another English player at Heist, Fergus Bell).

Signing a two year contract in Italy, Alex's starting opportunities were limited in his first season - but he still managed to score 2 league goals from the 3 starts he had. A 6ft 3 striker with mobility, great technique and an excellent work rate, Alex was signed by League Two club Mansfield Town in the summer of 2014, marking his return to English football after a five year absence. After enjoying a good pre-season, Alex made his competitive debut on the 9th August as Mansfield lost 1-0 away to Northampton Town in their League Two opener. A few days later, away to Sheffield United in the League Cup, Alex scored his first goal for Mansfield - netting in a 2-1 defeat.

Alex scored his first Football League goal for Mansfield on the 16th September - netting the late winner in a 1-0 victory over Morecambe. Unfortunately, a shoulder injury would rule Alex out of action for most of the season limiting Alex's starts at the Stags in the League to just six.

Alex signed for National League club Torquay United on 4th August 2015 and on the 8th August 2015 he scored on his debut; the solitary goal in a 1-0 home win for the Seagulls. He scored his second goal away to Halifax on 15th August, the winner in a 3-2 victory. Although Torquay's season began with a relegation struggle and few goals, Alex managed to score 5 League goals in his first 12 starts. Often played out of position due to his work-rate and desire in a struggling team, as the January transfer window arrived (and with 6 goals in 16) Alex earned himself a move to Scottish Premier League club Inverness Caledonian Thistle - signing a contract until the end of the season. Alex made his Inverness debut in the Scottish Cup on the 9th January 2016 and his Premiership debut came on the 16th January as a substitute against Kilmarnock. Things were going well but unfortunately in the next fixture, another Cup tie, Alex would suffer a season-ending injury.

Despite the limited appearances, Alex had done enough to impress the Inverness management and he was awarded a new contract for the 2016/2017 season. After 2 Premiership starts, Alex's first goal came on the 18th September 2016 - and they don't come much bigger in Scotland as Alex scored a very late equalizing goal against Celtic. From his first 4 starts in the Premiership, Alex netted 4 times and a fabulous end to the season - when manager Richie Foran finally gave Alex a run of games - resulted in him netting 8 goals from 9 League starts in all. That fine form alerted a host of clubs to his potential and in early June 2017, Alex signed a two year contract at Motherwell.
