Club Career

Club(s) Began as a Leyton Orient FC trainee, before signing professionally on 5 July 1999. After fifteen Division Three appearances, he signed for Reading FC on 9 February 2001 for £25,000. Shorey helped his club into the elite following promotion from the Football League and remained in the Premier League following Reading FC's relegation, after 267 league appearances and twelve goals, he signed for Aston Villa FC on 7 August 2008. Shorey failed to settle, and on 1 September 2009, he almost joined Portsmouth FC on a season-long loan, but the deal fell through. Instead, on 24 November he joined Nottingham Forest on loan, for nine Championship appearances. On his return to Villa Park, he was loaned out again to Fulham FC on 1 February 2010, for another nine Premier League appearances. So after only 25 Villa Premier League appearances, on 7 August 2010, Shorey joined West Bromwich Albion FC, and after 53 Premier League appearances, he was released on 16 May 2012. On 10 July 2012, he re-signed for Reading FC, until he was again released after seventeen Premier League outings, on 24 May 2013. He then had a trial with Brighton & Hove Albion FC on 24 June, and played in a friendly for Millwall FC on 13 July. On 30 August, he signed for Bristol City FC on a short-term contract, he left in the December after fourteen League One appearances. On 9 January 2014, Shorey eventually signed for Portsmouth, where he played 41 League Two appearances up until he joined David Platt's FC Pune City in India in September 2015 and made fourteen Super League appearances. On his return, without a club, on 20 January 2016, Shorey signed with Colchester United FC, following the club's relegation, in which he made fifteen league appearances, his contract was not renewed.
