Former pre-merger Dagenham striker, who brought a much-needed ability to hold the ball up. Won the short-lived Player of the Month award in December, during which he scored within eight seconds of the kick-off in the second half against Woodford Town. Became the first Boro player to score twice in a match, including one in the first minute, at East Ham United and was sent off early in the second half - although his suspension was delayed subject to an appeal, and eventually forgotten about. Rumoured to have about seventeen kids so perhaps one day we really will see 'Son of Devon' in a Boro shirt (see entry for Sean Junor).
