debut BRAINTREE TOWN, Ryman League Division One 29.9.98
Goalkeeper who signed after leaving the Royal Navy, having played for the Combined Services on many occasions. Represented many clubs along the south coast including Worthing, for whom he played in the First Round of the F A Cup, and where he was known as ‘Knocker’ and once turned up for a game dressed as Madonna. Obviously still good enough for Division One but was unhappy being second choice, so left in March 1999 to join Enfield. Returned the following February, via Bishops Stortford and Aveley, and even managed to win the Player of the Year award for his contribution to Boro's successful relegation battle . Played outfield during the second half of a pre-season match at his first club West Wight, during the Isle of Wight tour. Fell out of favour with John Bennett (or rather caretaker manager Bob Clarkson) and left to join Leyton Pennant then Barking. Regularly used to take the £200 out of the fruit machines at Sungate, but was known to spend more than that in trying. Very loud and often used to banter with supporters behind the goal, and once ate a bacon roll that had been thrown at him by a disgruntled Bromley supporter. Was the first to offer a light to a rather charming young lady by the name of Mouse, during a (ahem) "Gentleman's Evening" staged to celebrate the Club surviving another season.
