  • Player profile

    Jet-heeled striker Joachim burst onto the scene with the Foxes when Brian Little gave him his chance after signing professional terms with the club in 1992, fast becoming a fans’ favourite thanks to his exciting forward play.

    He started his career with Boston Town but soon drew the attention of the City scouts, who brought him to the club jn 1991 and saw him make a big impact at youth level, enough to get a quicker-than-expected call up to the first team.

    The Peterborough-born player made his debut in a home match against Barnsley in October 1992 and his development was rapid. He soon became a regular and scored the goal against Portsmouth that helped send City to Wembley in 1993 before they were eventually edged out by Swindon Town.

    It was second time lucky for Joachim and Leicester, however, and he was involved in carving out the goal for Steve Walsh to see City to victory over old foes Derby County and a place in the Premiership.

    The small and tricky frontman, who had a great burst of pace and impressive dribbling skills that caused plenty of defences problems, hit the ground running in the top flight the following season when he scored Leicester’s opening Premiership goals but that campaign ultimately proved a frustrating one with a serious injury seeing him miss the bulk of the action.

    It spelt the end of his career at Filbert Street, too, with former boss Little taking Joachim to Villa for £1.5 million, but it took time for the forward to settle at Villa Park, although he did get the club’s Player of the Year award at the end of the 1998-99 season.

    He fell out of favour under new Villa boss John Gregory and a move to Coventry City followed before he dropped down the divisions with Leeds United and then Walsall, where he regained his scoring touch. Moves around the lower leagues followed with Boston United, Darlington and King’s Linn before he finished off at Hinckley United.
