Background: Joined Wycombe aged 15 and impressed during the 2000/1 season playing for the Under 17's. Played for Berkshire at County level and was also on the books of both West Ham and Crystal Palace before being spotted by the Wycombe Youth scouts. A very skilful midfielder who could also strike the ball very well. Gained experience with the Under 19's during 2001/2 before progressing to Reserve team football in 2002/3. Made his break into the First Team during the brief reign of Tony Adams and was rewarded with a one year professional contract running until the summer of 2005. Played briefly in the First Team for Wycombe alongside his cousin Nathan Tyson before breaking his ankle during a pre-season game with Portsmouth in July 2004, meaning that he was to miss the vast majority of the 2004/5 season. Suffered a further foot injury in the final game of the 2004/5 campaign, however, he seemed to have impressed new Manager John Gorman enough to ensure that his immediate future was with Wycombe and was just returning to full fitness and more First Team opportunties until his life was tragically cut short by a fatal car accident on 14th January 2006.
