Youth team striker with obvious potential from the start despite being completely bow-legged, who was awarded Goal of the Season for an overhead kick at home to Staines Town in March 1999, even though it was disallowed. Took over in goal when Stuart Horne was sent off in an East Anglian Cup tie. Started to find the net more frequently and was in red-hot form early in the 2000-01 season. Was invited for trials with Southend United and was released when the Club was suspended in December 2000. Initially joined Dulwich Hamlet where he scored on his debut, before moving on to Grays Athletic with some success then Barking and Ford United before moving to Bishops Stortford. Appeared on Big Brother's Little Brother in 2004 when his mate, ex-Romford youth team colleague Victor Ebuwa, was a housemate.
