Part of the original reserve team, returned in 1994 to serve the Club well in the Boro tradition of lively little full-backs. Scored in a pre-season game against Dartford and ran the 1995 London Marathon. Survived the transition into the McGovern & Marson era but only for a short run in the first team in September 1995. Continued to show his face at games from time to time. I'm sure the ref must have thought we were having a laugh when that name went down on the team-sheet.
