PositionMidfielder

Michael enjoyed his best season to date in the Wycombe Wanderers engine room in 2000-01.

He has become something of an institution in the side and in many ways embodies the style of the current team.

A hardworking midfield player with good close control, great stamina and a fierce determination, he often seems to deliver an astonishing number of passes in a game.

The provider of many chances for his colleagues, he netted several vital goals himself during the campaign including strikes in the FA Cup ties against Grimsby Town and Wimbledon.

Michael joined Leyton Orient in July 2004 with a two-year contract.
