Eve joined San Juan Jabloteh prior to the 2001 Trinidad season as a defender. Before he joined Jabloteh, he had been playing with Joe Public of Trinidad, on loan from Chester City of England. Eve is Chester's most capped player, although many of his caps were won while out on loan and he only made 14 Football League appearances for Chester in 1999-2000. They were relegated at the end of the season, with Eve missing several games because of international duty.

After making his debut for the Trinidad and Tobago national football team in a 4 April 1994 Copa Caribe game against Barbados, Eve became a monumental figure for the national team. He earned 117 caps in those years, scoring 34 goals, and helped lead the team in three different rounds of World Cup qualifiers. He retired from international football after not being considered for the Trinidad and Tobago squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, and has since wound down his playing career while preparing for a full-time career as a coach. He was an assistant coach at Jabloteh, working with former England international Terry Fenwick. In April 2009 he joined Ma Pau as the assistant coach.

On 26 May 2011, he was appointed manager for the Trinidad and Tobago Under-23 team for the Olympic Qualifiers that were played in July 2011. [1]
