Profile: Rated by many as the best left back in the Ryman Premier League, Michael began his career as a junior with Wimbledon FC before switching to Southend United. Dropping into the non-league game, he spent time at Harlow Town and Grays Athletic before spending three seasons at Southern League Wingate & Finchley. Chelmsford City signed him in January 2005 but was snapped up by Dave Anderson for an undisclosed fee the following close season after winning both the Supporters and Players Player of the Year Awards with the Essex side. Still in his early twenties, this whole-hearted young defender settled in well at Kingsmeadow with some assured displays during 2007, despite a disrupted season due to injury, and looks set to have a bright future with the Dons.
