Spink was a goalkeeper who spent most of his career in Aston Villa, playing 460 games from 1977 to 1996, winning the 1981-82 European Cup, the 1983 European Super Cup and the 1994 English Football League Cup. Considered one of the best English goalkeepers at thet time, he unfortunately capped for England only once due mostly to the competition with legend Peter Shilton. Spink played also for West Bromwich Albion, Millwall, Forest Green Rovers and retired in 2001. The goalkeeper is remembered by Aston Villa fans not only for his long career in the club but also for having been Jimmy Rimmer's substitute in the 1982 European Cup final, when he had an inspired performance that helped Aston Villa win the trophy thanks to many remarkable saves.
Spink was a tall and strong goalkeeper, reactive, gifted with determination and agility despite his imposing size. He very often moved out of the goal and was good at covering it. His goal kicks were powerful and accurate, often going past the midfield and reaching a teammate. He preferred making short passes using the hand rather than the foot.
