Able to play in midfield or defence, Michael became a good utility player during his time at Nene Park and was able to fit in anywhere he was asked to play. His contract option was taken up at the end of the season, and he signed an extension which kept him at Nene Park until the summer of 2011 later in the year. In the remainder of the 2007/2008 season he appeared 17 times for Diamonds and the following season, played 38 times for the Diamonds in League games, including 7 as substitute, playing in midfield early in the season, then reverting to full back, playing both left and right back, as well as a spell at centre back.
