The Hull City skipper once again proved his worth in 2000-01 with a string of excellent performances.

Justin was an ever-present until he picked up a knee injury in the win at Exeter City in October sidelined him for nine games, but once fit again he rarely missed a match.

His central defensive partnership with Ian Goodison was the foundation of the Tigers' remarkable rise to the Play-Offs.

A big and powerful defender, he made the 200th appearance of his senior career in the Easter match against York City.

Justin joined Grimsby Town in July 2004 on a one-year contract that was extended to June 2006 in June 2005, then to June 2007 in June 2006 and to June 2008 in April 2007.
