He went on to make his league debut for the Diamonds in their 1-0 opening day victory over Eastbourne Borough. Although playing most games in the early part of the 2008/09 season, he picked up an injury in December 2008, and with the arrival of left back Kurt Robinson on loan from Ipswich Town, he was unable to regain his place in the side. He went out on loan to Barrow AFC on 26 March 2009 for the remainder of the season, and was released in May 2009.
