debut Barkingside, Eastway Essex Senior League 3.1.05
Joined from Burnham Ramblers in December 2004, having scored an own goal in Boro's 6-0 win there the previous March. Nevertheless was so keen to complete his transfer to Romford that he took the transfer form to the league himself. Unfortunately it hadn't been spotted at Romford that he'd appeared in the League Cup group stages for Burnham, and his substitute appearance in the first leg of the next round at home to Enfield Town prompted Boro to be removed from the competition. Recovered from that shaky start to his Boro career to make a good impression in subsequent appearances. Narrowly avoided also being cup-tied in the Essex Thames-side Trophy having been an unused substitute for Burnham in the First Round, but had a starting role in every game of Romford's run to the Final and came the closest to scoring in the Final when he headed against the crossbar. Finally earned himself a regular start in central midfield the following season, notching his first goal at Hullbridge Sports and scoring his second a month later at home to the same opponents. Missed more than two months in the autumn through injury but returned in the New Year, often appearing in the defence.
