Sure you've got the right guy?.

The one at Billericay used to play for Dagenham & Redbridge and I think that his Southend connection is that he was a youth team player with us many years ago.

Yep I want to college with Matt as in those days the YTS players had to do a day release at Southend Tech. He was an all right bloke back then, he never quite made the grade at Southend. I guess due to the fact we started our charge up the table at the time and he was never a Division One player but maybe could have made it if we had stayed in Division 3.
