Shanks began his football career as a junior at Fulham, but moved on to Luton Town without appearing in Fulham's first team. He joined QPR in November 1974 and made his debut against Burnley in December 1974. He eventually played 180 league games for QPR, scoring 10 times, before transferring to Brighton in 1981, and playing one game on a non-contract basis for Wimbledon.

He is also known for being Stan Bowles' gambling partner and for dating Mary Stavin, the 1977 Miss World.
