Career

Born in Stockton-on-Tees, North East England, Bishop began his career with Middlesbrough in their youth system.[3] After being released by Middlesbrough as a teenager he moved to Northern League side Billingham Town and played there for a number of years.[3][4] In a match in 2001, he played alongside his brother Craig, aged 16, and father Rob, aged 46, as the team had eight matches to play in 15 days towards the end of the 2000–01 season.[5] He made 11 appearances and scored two goals for Gateshead in all competitions in the 2002–03 season,[6] before leaving in October 2002 and re-signing for Billingham.[7][8] He played for Spennymoor United in the 2003–04 season, making 38 appearances and scoring three goals.[9] He made 25 appearances and scored one goal for Whitby Town in the 2004–05 season.[10]

He signed for Scarborough of the Conference National in March 2005 on a contract until the end of the 2004–05 season,[11] following a week-long trial.[12] He made 10 appearances and scored one goal for Scarborough during this season,[10] and signed a deal to keep him at the club for the 2005–06 season in May.[12] Here, he made a name for himself and was chosen as captain for the 2005–06 season.[citation needed] His lip was cut in an alleged clash with Denny Ingram in the tunnel following a game against Halifax Town in November, which Bishop decided not to press charges against.[13]

He was signed by Conference rivals York City for an undisclosed nominal fee on 31 January 2006.[14][15] He finished the season with 14 appearances and scored one goal for York and signed a new contract with the club in July.[16][17] He scored the winning goal against Oxford United with a 20 yard volley on the final day of the 2006–07 season, meaning York secured a place in the Conference National play-offs.[18] He was voted as the York City Clubman of the Year for the season the same day,[19] finishing the season with 49 appearances and scoring three goals.[20] He was named in the England National Game XI team in May to play in the Four Nations Tournament.[21] Bishop rejected a new deal at York, saying he wanted his salary to fall in line with the club's top earners.[22]

Bishop playing for Barnet in 2008

He signed for League Two team Barnet in June on a free transfer as he was out of contract with York.[23] He said he decided to join Barnet so he could fulfil a life-long ambition of playing in the Football League.[24] He made his debut against Morecambe on 11 August 2007 and was sent off for violent conduct in his second game against Norwich City in the League Cup on 14 August 2007,[25][26] which resulted in a three-match suspension.[27] He finished the 2007–08 season with 47 appearances and two goals for Barnet,[28] and handed in a transfer request in April 2008 after turning down an improved contract with the club.[29] Despite this, the club exercised their option to extend his contract for another season in May.[30] He was removed from the transfer list at his own request after the start of the 2008–09 season.[31] Bishop was appointed as Barnet's captain in November after Ismail Yakubu gave up the role.[32] He suffered a fractured jaw after being kicked in the face during a match against Darlington by Ricky Ravenhill in December, which ruled him out for the Christmas period.[33] He finished the season with 48 appearances, scoring one goal,[34] and was offered a new contract at Barnet.[35]

Bishop agreed to join fellow League Two team Notts County on 20 May 2009,[36] and a day later he signed a pre-contract agreement to join the club on 1 July.[37] He made 51 appearances and scored one goal for the club during the 2009–10 season, in which County won the League Two title.[38] He signed a two-year contract extension with County on 5 July 2010, which contracted him at the club until June 2012.[39] In January 2011, he scored in County's 1–1 draw against Premier League side Manchester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup, which saw them earn a replay at the City of Manchester Stadium.[40] He finished the 2010–11 season with 51 appearances and two goals.[41] On 10 May 2011, Bishop signed a new two-year contract with County, keeping him at the club until June 2013.[42]
