Goalkeeper who never missed a league game during his time with the Club, and was the first player to make a hundred appearances. Never fulfilled his ambition to play up front for Boro (apparently nobody believes him when he says he once scored for Woodford Town, but this correspondent was there and has photographic evidence. Somewhere). Came back from the 1993 pre-season tour to Wales with a most horrible shirt. Went onto the coaching staff at Romford Y F C.
