debut Waltham Abbey, Eastway Essex Senior League 16.8.03
Stepped up from Intermediate football with May & Baker. Played initially at right back but tended to appear in a more advanced role as the season progressed. Benefited from a spell in the reserves (at his own request) and set up several goals from midfield, looking more comfortable there than in defence. Looked a more mature player the following pre-season but was sent off in a friendly with Bishops Stortford, and struggled to hold down a place in the ensuing season. Earned a regular start for 2005-06 and was occasionally given the armband in an attempt to bring him out of his shell on the field a bit more. Finally scored his first goal for the Club with a 35-yard shot that was fumbled into the net by the 'keeper. Missed six weeks with an ankle injury in the second half of the season and then gave it all up for a bit to do the knowledge, returning to turn out for Boro in 2007 pre-season.
