Experienced defender departs the MEMS Priestfield Stadium

Gillingham FC can confirm that experienced defender Paul Konchesky has today joined Ryman Premier League side Billericay Town.

The 35-year-old, twice capped by England, became the Gills' seventh signing of last summer upon joining on July 21. He made his debut in the 3-1 opening-day victory over Southend United on August 6 and provided the assist for Jay Emmanuel-Thomas's equaliser at Roots Hall.

A former Liverpool and West Ham left-back, Konchesky missed just one Sky Bet League One game prior to the turn of 2017, but only started two matches under new head coach Ady Pennock. In total, he made 29 appearances for the Gills.

Gillingham Football Club would like to thank Paul for his efforts during the time in ME7, and we wish him well for the future.
