Distinction of being the very first transfer purchase of Grilled Birds. A solid pair of hands which have caused a string of managers to keep faith with him from Division Four through Two. Slightly injury-prone.
Held the team together from the rear despite his relative youth, and forged an understanding with sweeper Lan Tuan-Mu over the course of more than a hundred games.
Critics have argued that he had a superior midfield to cover him, and reserve-goalkeeper turned coach Frank Öhmo set off a feud when he brought in a 19 year old New Zealander, Clair Harlow, for the S-League.
He won back his starting position after Harlow bombed spectacularly, but fared poorly at the highest level too. Conceded an unprecedented seven goals in the dismal 1-7 away drubbing by Winning Eleven.
