Ex-Gills forward signs on at Roots Hall

Former loan star Gavin Tomlin will line-up against the Gills next season after completing a move to League Two rivals Southend United.

Tomlin netted six goals in nine League outings for Gillingham after arriving on loan from Dagenham & Redbridge in the January transfer window.

The 29 year-old forward joins Southend on a one year deal and could make a quick return to MEMS Priestfield Stadium when we host the Shrimpers on September 18th
