assistant manager October - November 2000
Endeared himself to Ilford by resigning within days of being appointed to the manager's job, to join John Bennett at Romford. Had been assistant to Bennett at Braintree Town, and helped to bring in several new players to replace those who had left along with Amin Levitt. Took over as manager on a caretaker basis when Bennett had to step down for family reasons. Went to Grays Athletic when the Club was suspended, but expressed an interest in the Romford job permanently when the suspension was lifted. Was not considered for interview, partly because of attempted poaching of Romford staff before the Club's demise had been confirmed.
