versus Bournemouth After a spell as joint manager of Kent Invicta League Ashford United, Mark returned to Gillingham last season and has taken the role of Development Coach.
After a spell as assistant manager at Folkestone Invicta he returned to Priestfield as youth team boss in 2006 a position he held until March 2010 when he took up a position with Ashford Town's Youth Academy.
Mark made a total of 145 appearances for the club but a broken leg suffered in October 1999 kept that number down and eventually forced his retirement in 2002.
The right-back cost the Gills £45,000 when he joined from Plymouth Argyle in October 1997 and made his debut in the home game with Millwall the following month.
