Cotterill started his playing career in the non-leagues as a forward who could play centrally or in wide positions, playing semi-professionally at clubs like Cheltenham Town, Alvechurch and Burton Albion. He then signed his first professional contract, with Wimbledon, after a £120,000 deal was done with Burton.
