Anwar Uddin - remember him?


Recommended Posts

I've been writing something on Barnet and happened to see that defender Anwar Uddin plays for them. Now I remember reading something about him when he was a youngster at West Ham before he joined us in 2002, although I was only an 11/12 year old myself.

Wikipedia has him down as not playing for us and leaving because we couldn't afford to keep him after the ITV Digital collapse. How long was he with us for and did he ever make it into the squad?

I'm just curious as I can recall a fair bit of hype about him many moons ago and it was a few years after that before I heard about him again.

Think he was with us for about a month - not sure he played. It was in the dark days!

He definitely never played for the first team - though I assumed he turned out for the reserves because he was with us for long enough.

He was going out with a page 3 lass at the time.

I remember him. Right back if I remember correctly? He was talked of as a decent prospect back in his West Ham days.

I saw him play a few times for Dagenham in the Conference and he was solid enough at that level and led the defence well - I think he was their captain at one stage. He eventually lost his place as they climbed the leagues but they might need him back for their return to non league next season.
