Early career

Born in Kirby Muxloe, Leicestershire, but grew up in Anstey with his parents Nell and John, and brother Michael. He started his football career as a trainee at Coventry City, but struggled to break into the first team.

The Football League

After leaving Highfield Road, he moved to Crewe Alexandra, Reading, Southend United and Chesterfield. [1] In 2003, Peter Jackson, who had just been re-appointed manager of Huddersfield Town, brought Booty in to help with the club's revitalisation following two relegations in three seasons, but he picked up an injury and only played four games during that season. At the end of the season, Jackson appointed Booty to the coaching staff, a role which he held until May 2008. [3]


At the beginning of the 2008–09 season, he joined Northern Premier League side Curzon Ashton as a player, moving on first to Salford City and then Buxton. [4] [5] Before the 2009–10 season, Booty rejoined Curzon Ashton as assistant manager. [6]

In May 2011, Booty followed Gary Lowe to Hyde, where he became Lowe's assistant manager, signing a one-year contract at the club. [7]
