Defender signed from Hornchurch, where his dad Mick was manager. Had to wait a bit for his debut but made an immediate impression with his confidence and maturity, and didnít miss a minute for the rest of the season. Spent much of the following season in a left midfield or left wing-back role, but suffered quite a bit with injuries through not warming up enough. Was appointed captain by new manager Amin Levitt following the loss of several players to Bishops Stortford and went on to win the Player of the Year award. Joined Purfleet at the start of the following season but didnít make it and returned to Hornchurch, spending some time coaching in America. Eventually rejoined Levitt at Aveley and appeared against Boro in the 2005 Essex Thames-side Trophy Final.
