Born in Banjul, Gambia, he made his name playing youth football in London.

Former Boro skipper Paul Ince spotted Muzzy's potential while he was on the coaching staff at Swindon Town and signed him as a trainee when he took over his first managerial job, at Macclesfield Town.

Ince recruited him for a second time when he became MK Dons' manager and handed him his senior debut in August 2007 in a League Cup tie against Sheffield United.

He spent time on loan with Crawley Town, making 26 league appearances, before joining Torquay United in the summer of 2008, playing 30 league games in his first season at Plainmoor.

During 2009/10 he spent time on loan with Kettering Town, before being sold to Lincoln City.

He scored three goals in 24 league starts and nine sub appearances for the Imps in the 2011/11 campaign, but when they were relegated from the Football League at the end of that season, his former Torquay boss, Paul Buckle, took him to the Memorial Stadium.

Muzzy enjoyed a fine 2011/12 season, scoring four goals in 24 league starts and six sub appearances as Rovers finished mid-table in npower League Two.
