Gillingham's Chris Palmer has told manager Mark Stimson he would like to play in just one position this season.The 25-year-old summer signing from Walsall, who can play at both full-back positions and on both wings, is keen to shrug off his versatility reputation. He told BBC Radio Kent: "I want to be stuck in one position and get my head down, and I feel that's on the wing." But Stimson said: "He can play four positions comfortably. We'll look at him in pre-season and decide." The Gills boss added: "Having worked with him for a few days you can see he is comfortable left footed and right footed. "Over the pre-season games we'll play him in all those positions and decide which one is best for him and the team."
