Hodges started his career as a striker at Tottenham Hotspur and had a spell on loan at Home Park in 1993, scoring twice in six starts. He also had a short loan at Wycombe Wanderers but made his name as a winger after joining Barnet, before moving to Reading in 1997. He lost his first team place at Reading due to severe injury problems and after being released, joined Argyle, eight years after his first spell with the club.
Hodges made over 200 appearances whilst at Home Park and played a major role in the Division Three and Division Two championship seasons. He primarily played at left-back or on the left side of midfield but filled almost every position in the side at some point. A persistent back injury kept him out for most of Argyle's first championship campaign but he eventually recovered and spent three more seasons at Home Park.
After his release in the summer of 2008 he helped Torquay United gain promotion back to the Football League and also played for Truro City, where he later enjoyed managerial success as the Cornish club rapidly rose up the non-league pyramid. After guiding the cash-strapped club through the 2012–13 season, during which City nearly folded, Hodges was not offered a new deal for financial reasons.
