Was already something of a legend in Boro circles before even joining. Had a memorable set-to with Terry Beck while playing for Concord Rangers in December 1995, having taken over in goal from the injured Chris Brackett, and was sent off while player-manager of Basildon United in pre-season in 1998 for arguing about a penalty when Basildon were already 3-0 up (and allegedly giving a false name to the ref). Managed East Thurrock United in 2001-02 and took active exception to Boro supporters standing behind the goal during a penalty competition, jumping into the crowd to sort them out. Had a short but eventful career for Boro after coming out of retirement, having resigned from the East Thurrock job, scoring in his first two appearances and finishing his second game back between the sticks. Vowed never to go back into management, inevitably returning to the East Thurrock post and frequently coming back out of retirement to deputise in goal once more.
