Gillingham FC has offered five Apprentices from their Youth team professional contracts for next season.
Chris Kiely, Rory Hill, Danny Walder, Tayler Thomas and Tom Wynter have all made a positive impression throughout the season, and with the team now riding high in the Youth Alliance South East Conference League, the boys have been rewarded for their success.
Gills supremo, ex-Newcastle and Pompey defender, Mark Stimson said:
“They have all done well this season and from watching them in training and watching their games I could see that these boys have what it takes to make the step up.”
“Their success is further proof of Gillingham’s flourishing youth system which is consistently bringing through players with excellent ability. Scott and I now want to nurture their talent even further by taking them into the professional game.”
