trainee forms as he continued his education. He signed professional
forms in July 1993 and made his debut in September 1995 against
Torquay in the Coca Cola Cup. He was sent off on his debut. Injuries

offered a six month contract but suffered from hamstring injuries.

1999 edition of that magazine stated that Karl had since moved
on to join Worthing but no mention of this could be found on Worthing's
website.He later played for Hendon in 1999 and Croydon from 2000-2002
gaining promotion to Ryman Premier League. Karl also had a stint
as player manager and manager at Sinjun's Grammarians in the AFC
league in london.

business in Bondi, Sydney training players for sports conditioning
