Stillie hangs up his gloves

07 May 2008 02:37
Veteran Gillingham goalkeeper Derek Stillie has announced his retirement from the game, while fellow shot-stopper Simon Royce has penned a one-year deal with the club. Former Dunfermline Athletic and Dundee United keeper Stillie joined the Gills last summer and made 16 appearances for the club. The 34-year-old was often on the substitutes bench though, with Royce the preferred first-choice keeper. Gills manager Mark Stimson told the club's official website: "I'd like to thank Derek for all his efforts for the club this season and wish him every success in his new career."
