PositionMidfielder

Former England U-21 international who has made over 500 appearances at club level. This veteran player returned to the Wrexham team in November 2000 and featured regularly for the remainder of the season, mostly appearing in a left-sided midfield role although he also had a spell partnering Craig Faulconbridge up front for the Robins. His high work rate, enthusiasm and eye for goal make him a useful member of the squad and more than compensate for his advancing years.
