This tough defender came to the Harriers in October 2003 from non-league Chester City in a deal thought to be worth about £8,000.

He started his career at Forest Green Rovers and then left for Oxford Utd in a £35,000 deal. Within weeks of arriving at Aggborough manager Jan Molby made him the club captain. A role that he performed immaculately.

He made such an impact here that it was no surprise when he won the Harriers Online Player of the Year award at the end of his first season. Following that award he was rewarded with a three year contract but then in the year that we got relegated he had a very poor season by his standards and was put on the transfer list.

When he failed to find a new club during the close season he found he still had a job to do at the Harriers.

He eventually left the club in January 2006 in another cost cutting exercise. He joined Rushden & Diamonds for an un-disclosed fee.

Since retiring from playing Wayne has joined up with Justin Edinburgh as his assistant manager at Newport and Gillingham but is now back at Newport as assistant manager to Mike Flynn.
