debut Southend Manor, Essex Thames-side Trophy First Round 23.10.97
Skilful midfielder, son of ex-Romford player John and nephew of Alan. Joined from Carshalton Athletic but was always a fringe player, often being too keen on playing clever football when the game was likely to be a scrap. Incurred a seventy-day suspension from Essex F A, after being uncharacteristically (but deservedly, if the refereeís report was accurate) sent off for the reserves. Returned two weeks into the following season (not having realised his carried-over suspension didnít resume until the end of September) and had a regular start until the second half of his ban but, after returning for good, struggled to hold down a place and soon drifted away. Cousin Anthony had a brief spell with Romford in 1999-2000.
