Gills goalkeeper feared for future

The 37-year-old had looked like he might leave the club until signing his new contract on Thursday, and his desperation to keep on playing was the main factor behind his decision.

"I made it clear I wanted to carry on but I wasn't sure whether it was going to be at Gillingham," he said. "I was offered a contract three days after the play-off final. It was a take it or leave it offer.

"I had to make a decision. If I turned it down then I could have gone two or three weeks without a club - or not even got one at all.

"I know Steve Lomas left Gillingham last year and couldn't get a club when he wanted to play for another year, so I had to consider any offer seriously."
