debut and first goal SOUTHEND MANOR, Eastern Floodlight Competition Group Seven 11.10.94
Midfielder who looked impressive when given a chance by Lyndon Lynch. Shuttled between Romford and Dagenham reserve sides, making a couple more appearances for Boro in subsequent seasons. Signed for Paul Joynes in 2002 but never appeared, but returned a year later for Mark Reed and set a new record for the longest-spanning Boro career. Never managed a run in the side but was usually in the squad, but left in late August 2004 after being dropped once too often. Returned in the New Year but didn't get another run-out until the last League game of the season, coming on as sub and setting up two goals in a 4-2 win at home to Stansted. Was slightly more prominent in 2005-06, but not much.
