Weight79 kg

PositionMidfielder

This veteran midfielder began the 2000-01 campaign on a month-to-month contract at Brighton & Hove Albion and came on from the subs' bench for the final 15 minutes of the home game with Rochdale in August.

Sadly that was to be his last appearance in senior football as he suffered an ankle injury playing for the reserves shortly afterwards that required an operation. Complications set in and he contracted a flesh-eating infection that attacked his ankle ligaments.

A lengthy stay in hospital followed and Warren finally announced his retirement on doctor's advice in November.

He has since assisted with the Albion reserve team.
