Background: Hit the headlines with a 150,000 move from Conference side Kingstonian to Premiership West Ham in November 1998. However, the youngster failed to make in-roads with The Hammers first team, making just one substitute appearance in the 2-2 with Liverpool at Anfield in February 1999. Farmed out for unspectatular loan spells with Leyton Orient and Exeter City before returning to Kingstonian at the end of the 2000/2001 season. Released by West Ham in the summer of 2001.
Time at Wycombe: Made an immediate impact at Wycombe when he scored two goals on his debut during a pre-season friendly at Crawley. A pacey striker who seemed keen to re-launch his football career and was grateful for Wycombe giving him that chance. Scored his first Wycombe goals early in the 2001/2 season before a fairly tame spell. Came back strong during the latter part of the season and scored a great goal at Northampton in April 2002. Played bit parts following this and although he has scored on a fairly regular basis compared to other Wycombe strikers, it was no surprise when Tony Adams decided to loan him out first to Crawley Town in December 2003 and then to Hornchurch in February 2004. In March 2004 he was told his contract would not be renewed at Wycombe.
