Starting his professional playing career as a 17-year-old in 1984 at Wolverhampton Wanderers, he went onto make over 500 first-team appearances for eight teams winning the Premier League title in 1995 with Blackburn Rovers and the League Cup with Leicester in 2000.

 

He also represented the England national side on 11 occasions between 1993 and 1998 and was a member of the 1996 European Championships squad and the 1998 FIFA World Cup finals squad.

 

Upon retiring from playing, he went straight into a career in coaching and had roles at both Manchester City and Leicester City before he was appointed assistant manager to Iain Dowie at Coventry City.

 

He followed Dowie to Queens Park Rangers and Hull City as his assistant manager before joining Stafford Rangers in his first managerial post.

 

Unfortunately, the move didn’t work out and he only lasted nine games before resigning in 2011.

 

Flowers then joined Northampton Town as goalkeeper coach where he stayed for just over two years before briefly joining Kidderminster Harriers in 2014 as first-team coach.

 

He then had a brief spells with Stuart Pearce at Nottingham Forest as goalkeeping coach and Kidderminster Harriers as one of their backroom coaching staff before joining Championship side Fulham as goalkeeping coach.

 

In November 2017 he was appointed as Mark Yates’ assistant manager at Vanarama National League side Solihull Moors and was promoted to manager when Yates left in June 2018.

 

Flowers guided the club to a best-ever finish of second place in the National League as well as reaching the Second Round of the Emirates FA Cup but he left the Moors in January 2020 by mutual consent with the team just one point off a play-off place.

 

Flowers made a return to football in August 2020 when he joined newly relegated Macclesfield Town but unfortunately the club folded and were expelled from the National League just weeks later without Flowers taking charge of a competitive game.

 

Flowers told his club`s website: “Bards fans can expect an honest, humble and hardworking team that tries to create chances and endeavours to entertain our supporters”.
