Worryingly slight centre-back, initially played as sweeper to cope with Scott Rock's shortcomings. Scored his only goal from the centre-circle with a gale behind him. Overcame terrace stick to put in valuable performances in second and third seasons, but undeservedly earned the unwanted distinction of hitting the crossbar with a penalty in the shoot-out at Sawbridgeworth, to put Romford out in a League Cup Semi-Final replay in April 1995.
