Although born in Preston, Noteman was brought up in Leeds and was a Leeds City Boys’ representative. He joined United from Primrose Hill High School on the YTS scheme in 1987 and made his debut as an apprentice. He was a prolific goalscorer for the United Juniors and he scored on debut in a 3-0 win over Sheffield United at Elland Road in a Members’ Full Cup game. His League debut came in the last game of the season at Birmingham City when he came on as substitute for Micky Adams. His brothers, Wayne and Ian, became well-known on the Yorkshire Non-League circuit. In November 1989 he joined Doncaster Rovers for £10,000. He gave Rovers great service for three seasons, scoring twenty goals in in one hundred and five starts and one substitute appearance in the League, and two in the FA Cup from five starts and one as a substitute and one goal from four starts in the League Cup. In March 1992 he signed for Mansfield Town for £25,000 in time for their promotion to Division Three, but he had only been there long enough to play six games. He was a member of the Stag’s team that knocked Leeds out of the League Cup in 1994-95. After scoring fifteen goals in ninety-five games, eighteen of which were as a substitute, he was allowed to return to Doncaster Rovers in August 1995. After scoring once in four League appearances he took off for Chester City in September 1995. He maintained his usual goal ratio scoring eighteen goals in sixty-eight League games, eleven being as a substitute. He had a stint with Hibernians FC of Malta and was their leading goalscorer in 1997-98. He returned to England and his League career was over as he joined Ilkeston Town for the 1998-99 season followed by Boston United in September 1999. He scored twice in fourteen appearances, eight being as a substitute. He was associated with Rushden and Diamonds, Ilkeston Town, who he joined in February 2000 and scored four goals in twelve starts and seven games from the bench before leaving in summer 2000, Gainsborough Trinity, Hucknall Town and Harrogate Town in November 2000. Later he joined Matlock Town, Retford United and in 2003-04 he joined West Yorkshire League South Normanton Athletic.
