appearances 78 (league 42)
debut BOWERS UNITED, Essex Senior League 19.8.95
Former Celtic, West Ham United and Northern Ireland goalkeeper once known as 'McKnightmare'. Joined Boro from Collier Row's Division Three championship side and helped them to two championships. Scored from a clearance at Barking without even realising it was his goal, and swapped places with Mark Reed at Leighton Town after dislocating a finger. His presence in the box led to the equaliser, and again at Horsham when coming up for a corner during the legendary late comeback (calling "keeper's ball" probably had something to do with it). Missed much of that season with a knee injury which prompted him to semi-retire, but appeared to enjoy the end-of-season party.
