Profile

15th March 2004

Mark, who was part of the 1998/99 Worthington Cup winning Spurs squad joined Barnet for 32,500 in January 2001 and moved to Southend for 25,000 in July 2003.

A skilful midfielder who likes to run with the ball he impressed the Roots Hall faithful by scoring both goals in the opening day win against Cheltenham. Further outstanding performances and vital goals followed and it is no surprise that only he + Leon Cort have 100% appearance record for the Blues in March 2004. There is a small, but vocal section of the home crowd who he seems to annoy, but 45 matches into the season Kevin Maher is his only competition for player of the season.
