'The Kowloon Kid', ex-Dagenham midfielder who was bullied into joining Romford by his Post office colleagues. Scored with his first touch in Romford shirt. Didn't score again for nearly a year, but set up plenty with some excellent crosses. Scored a few from free-kicks, including an extra-time winner in the League Cup against Ford United and the last goal under Lyndon Lynch, and two direct from corners (three if you include Steve Wiggins' own goal at Concord Rangers). One of the few players to attempt the transition between the Lynch and McGovern & Marson eras, but soon left after being named as sub four games in a row.
