It was with the Mariners that he scored the winning golden goal in the 1998 Football League Trophy final at Wembley against Bournemouth. Wayne played 314 games in 13 years in the professional game before dropping down to the Conference to play for Woking, Grays Athletic and Fisher Athletic. In early 2004 he made a return to the pro game on a non-contract basis for Peterborough United before hanging up his boots at the end of the season. Source: Dagenham FC
