debut and first goal EAST HAM UNITED, Essex Senior League 22.8.92
last appearance Bowers United, Eastern Floodlight Competition Group Seven 14.12.94

Cumbersome striker and jolly decent chap who epitomised what some might describe as the shortcomings of much of Romford's team in its first season - definitely having the ability but carrying a bit too much weight and perhaps a little long in the tooth by then. Still fondly remembered for an incredible solo goal against Eton Manor, running from the halfway line leaving a trail of bewildered defenders in his wake. Managed to string it out for another two seasons by playing odd games. Was later part of the management team at Barkingside.
