Forward Craig Fagan puts pen to paper on contract extension

Gillingham have secured the immediate future of versatile forward Craig Fagan after the 31 year-old put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him at the club for the remainder of the 2013/14 season.

Craig, who can play as a striker or on either wing, was one of Peter Taylor’s first signings after taking the manager’s role on a full time basis in November, having previously played under the Blues boss at Hull City.

He has proved to be something of a lucky charm for the Gills so far with last weekend’s defeat at Colchester United being the first match we have lost in which Craig has featured in the starting line-up.

After making his debut in our 2-1 away win at Sheffield United, he was a starter in the 3-2 home win over Stevenage, once again in the 2-2 festive draw with Walsall and most recently the 1-0 televised win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Speaking about the deal Craig said, “I am enjoying my time here, I know the manager from before and I’m enjoying playing with the lads. I’ve been to a few clubs and this is one of the friendliest I’ve been to. Not just the playing staff but people around the ground as well.”
