debut Diss Town, F A Cup First Qualifying Round 14.9.02
Reserve team forward who came to the Club in the summer of 2001 and always got a run-out in pre-season, but never really broke into the first team squad until the autumn of 2003. Was 'credited' with an unlucky own goal in a friendly at East Thurrock United in July 2003, but has since tried to blame it on Ross Biscoe. Had converted to left back or midfield by the time Mark Reed gave him a chance with the first team, and was a squad regular for the remainder of the season, earning the nickname 'Plug' after the Bash Street Kid. Apologised via the Club's website for comments made to supporters after being substituted in a game at Ilford. Was on the bench for the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy Final but came on after just four minutes for the injured George Alder. Remained a squad player for the following season but had a run in the starting line-up while Alder was suspended. Barely managed that in 2005-06 with just a handful of scattered appearances. Finally carried out his monthly threat to leave and turned up at Barkingside in 2006-07.
