The 29-year-old is primarily an attacker who likes to work his way through the left wing, but has the capability to adapt to the other flank as well. Since he does not possess the physique to play through the middle, Higginbotham prefers to play as a winger.
The English International broke through the famous academy ranks of Salford City. At 18 years of age, he decided to switch his allegiance to Oldham Athletic, where he failed to make an appearance for the senior side for a year.
Craving for regular game time, he moved to Rochdale, which was his second club for the next two years. He was an integral part of the side during the first season, but failed to produce the same output in the successive season. He appeared seven times for the club, before going out on loan to Accrington Stanley until the end of the season.
He played 29 games for the club in 2009/10 season, but he moved back to Accrington Stanley on loan for the second part of the season. After struggling to cement his place in the starting eleven, Scottish side Falkirk secured his services. He scored 10 goals in 64 goals for the Scottish Premier League side, before heading back to England once again.
Huddersfield Town was his next adventure. He was not a regular as he made just seven appearances for the Terriers and spent time at Barnsley, Carlisle United, and Motherwell on loan spells. He failed to impress those clubs which drove a Scotland move once again.
Patrick Thistle became the next club to sign him on a permanent basis. He featured 74 times for the club and managed to find the back of the net ten times. Witnessing his talent, Kilmarnock were one amongst the host of the clubs to desire for his services. They landed him, but he failed to establish himself as a star at the club, which forced him to assess his options again.
Dunfermline Athletic were hanging over in the Scottish league by surviving the relegation. Higginbotham signed for Scotland side and went on to make 114 appearances for the club, scoring 18 times in three seasons.
With more than twelve years of top-level experience in the United Kingdom, Higginbotham will be a valuable addition to Real Kashmir.
