Hodges started his playing career with Wimbledon and made more than 200 appearances for the Crazy Gang during seven years at the club. He had a brief spell with Newcastle United before returning south to join Watford in 1987.

He made over 100 appearances at Vicarage Road enjoying four years at the club before joining Crystal Palace in 1991. His spell with the Eagles was short lived and the winger moved to Sheffield United and linked up with ex-Colliers boss Dave Bassett.

Hodges' five years at Bramall Lane were successful and he made more than 150 appearances for The Blades before moving to Derby County in the mid-nineties. He had spells at Hull City, Nottingham Forest and Scarborough before hanging up his boots in 2000.

The former Dons man arrived at Oakwell in August 2000 to link up with his old friend Bassett again. His work with the reserves has seen the side regularly challenge for honours both in the league and cup.

Hodges again became caretaker manager and remained in charge for the remainder of the season, taking up the post full time in the summer 2002. A year later, with the club in desperare trouble financialy, Hodges was replaced by Gudjon Thordarsson, who was part of the consortium that took control of the club in June 2003.
