We keep tabs on some former Gillingham players

Deon Burton, who scored 13 goals in 43 appearances as the Gills won the League Two title last season, played the second-half of Scunthorpe United’s 1-0 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday last Saturday before netting in the Irons midweek win at Frickley Athletic.

Rowan Vine, who notched seven goals in 37 games for St Johnstone as they finished third in the Scottish Premier League last season, has joined Hibernian.

The Edinburgh club are in Europa League Second Qualifying Round action tonight when they travel to face Swedish side Malmo, the current league leaders.

Striker Vine made nine appearances for the Gills in the closing months of the 2011-12 campaign, scoring once against Dagenham & Redbridge, while on loan from QPR.

Fellow forward Rene Howe has signed a two-year deal with League Two rivals Burton Albion having decided to leave Torquay United in the summer. He had scored 30 goals in 89 games throughout his two season stay at Plainmoor.

One of his many loan spells from Peterborough United brought him to Priestfield in January 2010 where he grabbed two goals in 18 appearances.

Winger Barry Cogan has penned a new one-year deal with Dover Athletic and is now the club’s third longest serving player having arrived at the Crabble in November 2010.

The now 28-year-old joined the Gills under Ronnie Jepson in June 2007 and scored once in 21 appearances before new manager Mark Stimson deemed him to be surplus to requirements.

Former Gills trialist Romuald Boco, the Benin international, is another to have changed League Two outfits.

The 28-year-old, who was out of contract at Accrington Stanley, has penned a one-year deal at Plymouth Argyle.
