Out of contract duo sign for Barnet
Former Gills duo Barry Fuller and Curtis Weston have both signed deals to join League Two side Barnet.
Both were released by the Kent club following the end of their contracts and will be looking to be part of the squad that travel to Birmingham City tomorrow for the first round of the Capital One Cup.
Fuller, 27, spent four years at Priestfield and made a total of 151 appearances without scoring.
He made his debut on January 29 2008 when the Gills were beaten 2-0 by Tranmere at Prenton Park – Paul Mclaren and Calvin Zola with the goals.
His last appearance for the club came in the 6-1 win over Hereford at Edgar Street on January 17 of this year. However he missed the rest of the season through injury, and despite his best efforts to prove his fitness he wasn’t offered a new contract at Priestfield.
Weston, 25, played 167 times for the club and scored 19 goals in all competitions during his spell. He signed from Leeds United in the summer of 2008 having had a loan spell at Scunthorpe, and made his debut for the Gills on August 9 2008 when the Gills drew 1-1 with Bournemouth at Dean Court.
He scored his first goal later that year against Wycombe, and last featured for Gills on April 28 earlier this year when Andy Hessenthaler’s side drew 1-1 with Northampton at Sixfields.
They both team up with Bees Manager Mark Robson who used to be part of the coaching staff under Mark Stimson.
Everyone at Gillingham FC would like to thank Barry and Curtis for their services to the club and we wish them well for their futures.
