Pen Pic:
Constantly improving over the last season, 'Bungle' was a hard working scampering figure either down the left flank or later all over the pitch in his midfield role. Has a tendency to allow his efforts to get distracted into contests with opponents, but  improved his temperament and learnt to keep his mouth shut on at least the odd occasion. At his best chasing back with last ditch tackles, and was the man scraping the ball off the City goal line countless times in 1999/00. His obvious commitment to the cause in City's relegation season saw him take the supporter's player of the year award.
Bungle looked a little world weary after the trials of last season on and off the pitch and despite the extra responsibility of the captain's armband his eventual departure was not a huge surprise. The latest financial problems proved the final straw and the opportunity to again play in a higher division proved too much temptation. The only surprise may be that given past interest from Crewe, Nuneaton and Worcester his eventual transfer was to Clevedon.
Originally joined City in May 1998 to follow his older brother Gary on the well worn track between the County Ground and Meadow Park. Was released by Swindon boss Steve McMahon at the end of his YTS training period, a decision many at the Division 1 side felt was a mistake at the time. Took a while to settle into the more physical aspect of DML football and being considerably smaller and slighter than his brother, Bungle had to bide his time in the reserves. When Hughes took over as manager Wayne got his chance and made himself the first choice left back with committed scrapping performances. Also proved himself capable of  telling contributions in attack, although his chances to get forward were limited by the added pressure on the defence.
