He was awarded both the Supporters and the First Team Player’s Player of the year in season 2000/01. Was infamously sent off in the first leg of the F.A. Vase semi-final of 2001/02. Played for almost the next two seasons and was in the 2002/03 F.A. Vase final side. Aaron played most of the 2003/04 season and was deeply upset to be left out of the F.A. Vase Final squad against Winchester City, and then announced he would be retiring from football. However at the start of 2004/05 he signed for Clacton Town and started pre-season training. On the evening of Wednesday 21st July 2004 after a training run he collapsed and died at his home in Ipswich aged just 33 years old. He was buried at Holy Trinity Church Long Melford on August 6th 2004. Record at AFC Sudbury/Sudbury Town Apps 215 Subs 22 Goals 12
