Time at club: 2003-2008
A versatile, locally-born defender who was signed on a free transfer from Everton in 2003. He had a previous loan spell at Exeter City.
A consistent performer across the back four, he was a firm crowd favourite and club captain and was named as player of the year in 2006.
He was controversially not offered a new contract in the summer of 2008 and left to join Luton Town on a free transfer.
