debut WALTHAM ABBEY, Eastway Essex Senior League 17.8.04
Young midfielder who joined from local Intermediate side Toby Club and impressed enough in pre-season to make the starting XI for the first game of the season, fully justifying his inclusion from the start. Scored with a spectacular overhead kick in only his second appearance to earn a draw against Bowers. Scored twice against old club Barkingside in a 2-0 win but then missed two months through injury and suspension. Another two spectacular goals against Southend Manor were wiped out when the match was abandoned due to floodlight failure. Appearances were less frequent later in the season and spent a season at Brentwood Town before returning to Rush Green for the 2006 pre-season. Scored in the sudden-death stage of the unsuccessful penalty shoot-out against Brentwood in the League Cup Final, but was the fall guy in Boro's penalties defeat to Tiptree United in the Essex Senior Cup the following season having given Boro an early lead, only for the result to be overturned owing to two ineligible players. Was leading the Club in appearances for the season at Christmas before joining Ilford.
