Does anyone know what happened to young Mr Byrne since he left us?

It's just that I was flicking through my new copy of the Sky Sports Football Yearbook, by the usually reliable Jack and Glenda Rollin, when I had a bit of a shock. Because, according to them, he never left, and he's still with us!! He's there in the list of Southend players, sandwiched between Tesfaye Bramble and Anthony Clark (who he?). Admittedly, he's not done much for us, as the book lists each player's appearances and goals on a season-by-season basis. So, season 1997-98, 10 appearances, 0 goals. Every season from 1998-99 to 2004-05 is then listed as 0 apps, 0 goals. I then checked the yearbook from the previous three seasons and there he was, just sitting in the list, not playing. With all that inactivity I daren't think how large he has become now!!

Has he really been kept on the books for the last seven seasons, making not one single appearance? I think we should be told!!
