Career

Agana started his football career with non-league side Welling United, where he met his wife, Lisa Regan, before joining Weymouth for £4,500 in March 1984.[1] He made over 100 appearances for the south coast club. He also represented the England national game XI.[1] Tony Agana also has a son called Fabian Agana that attends a school in Rotherham at Wickersley School and Sports College.

In August 1987 Agana moved into professional football with First Division club Watford.[1] He scored once from 15 appearances for the Hertfordshire side. Dave Bassett, the manager who had signed Agana, had been sacked by Watford in January 1987 and joined Sheffield United in February. On 19 February 1998 he sold Martin Kuhl to Watford for £40,000, with Agana and Peter Hetherston moving to Bramall Lane as part of the deal.[1][2]

He made his debut for United on 20 February 1988, scoring in a 1–0 home win against Barnsley. In the 1989–90 season he scored 24 goals in 46 appearances, forming a strong partnership with Brian Deane which helped United win promotion from the Second Division. In three years with the club he scored 42 goals in 118 matches

In November 1991 he signed for Notts County for a fee of £685,000 - which was a club record transfer fee. Although he was loaned to Leeds United in February 1992 he went on to play 145 times for the club, scoring 15 goals.

He went on to play for Hereford United, Cliftonville, Leek Town and was player-manager at Guiseley.

After retiring from football he studied computer visualisation at Sheffield Hallam University, graduating in 2004. He now works for the University of Manchester as a distance learning technology officer, as well as working for Sheffield United's matchday hospitality team.[3]
