Born: New­cas­tle, 1967 (Age 47) 1985-89 A cre­ative midfielder, Bo­gie came through the ranks at New­cas­tle and made his de­but in Au­gust 1986 against Lu­ton. How­ever, with his path blocked by Paul Gas­coigne, Bo­gie strug­gled to es­tab­lish him­self and left to join Pre­ston in 1989 hav­ing made 21 ap­pear­ances for his home­town club.

1989-95 Bo­gie scored 12 goals in 91 games for Pre­ston be­fore mak­ing a £145,000 move to Sec­ond Di­vi­sion Mill­wall in 1991. A mid­dling twosea­son spell at the Den ended with a £75,000 switch to Ley­ton Ori­ent, where Bo­gie won player of the year, goal of the sea­son and sealed a place in the PFA team of the year.

1995-2004 Af­ter five goals in 78 games for the O’s, Bo­gie joined Port Vale for £50,000 in 1995 and soon es­tab­lished him­self as the side’s cre­ative main­stay. A reg­u­lar scorer against bit­ter ri­vals Stoke, he was a huge fan­favourite and scored 12 goals in 180 games be­fore leav­ing to join Kid­der­min­ster in 2000. Forced to quit through in­jury af­ter 28 games, he joined Non-League Bedlington Ter­ri­ers and even­tu­ally hung up his boots in 2004, aged 37.

In five years at the helm, he won suc­ces­sive pro­mo­tion to reach the Con­fer­ence and es­tab­lished the Heed in Non-League’s top flight. Sacked in De­cem­ber 2012 af­ter a poor run, he then joined Stock­port but re­signed af­ter ten games. Bo­gie cur­rently coaches part time at New­cas­tle.
