Tall centre-back who was out of Senior football for several years but was persuaded to join Romford in the summer of 2004 by cousin Kevin Harvey. Was one of the better players in pre-season and started to get among the goals after being in and out of the side early in the season. Missed the start of the 2005-06 season because of work commitments. Once again missed the start of the season in 2006 but was soon back to his best. Powerful striker of a ball who scored what proved to be an extraordinary winning goal in an F A Vase tie at Erith Town in October 2006, direct from a free-kick over seventy yards out. Was sent off in the next round and was unable to regain his place following his suspension until after the Christmas break. Enhanced his reputation at free-kicks with another long-range strike at home to Bowers in January. Marked his hundredth appearance with a long-overdue opportunity from the penalty spot, scoring the only goal of the game to give Boro a league double over newly-crowned champions Brentwood and make Romford the league's top scorers for the 2006-07 season.
