First signed for the club at fifteen in 2019 and made his maiden U18’s squad appearance on the bench at home to Eastbourne Borough on 10th October that year.

Debuted in the 2-0 home win against Three Bridges on 18th November before becoming a regular the following campaign and turning out for the Senior side in pre-season.

Made two Senior appearances in 2021-22 when he entered the fray at home to Carshalton Athletic and away to local rivals Horsham, in the space of three days.

However, it was the Summer of 2022 that really saw this unflustered defender throw his hat into the first team ring, culminating with a starting berth versus Dover Athletic. After a ‘Star Man’ performance his stock rose further courtesy of a goal in the 2-4 victory at Welling United on Matchday Two.

Thus, it was no surprise to see him take home the Young Player of the Year trophy come May.
