Barry Fuller leaves Gillingham: I thought I would be ending my career at a club which means so much to me but it wasn't to be

BARRY FULLER says he wanted to end his career at Gillingham.


The 35-year-old defender, who last month has taken charge of the under 18s at his home-town club Ashford United, issued a statement on his Twitter account to reflect on his time at Priestfield Stadium.

“I’m very sad to announce that my time at the Gills has come to and end,” said Fuller, who has made 551 appearances during his career for Barnet, Stevenage Borough, Gillingham and AFC Wimbledon.

“When I came back to the club for my second spell, I 100% thought I would be ending my career at a club which means so much to me but it wasn’t to be.

“I have loved every minute of playing for this wonderful football club. I want to thank all the staff, the chairman (Paul Scally) and my team mates.

“A huge thank you to all the supporters, you have been amazing over my two spells at the club and it truly does mean a lot to me.

“The club and fans will always be close to my heart.

“I would like to wish the club and everyone involved all the very best for the season ahead and the future. Thank you all for some amazing memories.”

Steve Evans’ side were in tenth-place in League One at the time of the coronavirus health pandemic brought the campaign to a halt after 35 league games (51 points) in March.
