Barry Fuller leaves Gillingham Football Club

Defender departs MEMS Priestfield Stadium.

6 August 2020

Barry Fuller has left MEMS Priestfield Stadium after the player, along with the club, decided to terminate his contract by mutual consent.

The 35-year-old defender, who returned for his second spell with the club in the summer of 2018, had activated his option of a further year at ME7, however he has now left the Gills which allows him to sign for another club ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Across his two spells at MEMS Priestfield Stadium, Barry made 230 appearances and scored one goal, that coming against Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat during the 2018/19 campaign. He also captained the side who won the League 2 Play-Off Final against Shrewsbury 1-0 at Wembley Stadium in 2009 during his first spell.

Chairman Paul Scally paid tribute to Fuller, saying: "I'd like to place on record my thanks and best wishes to Barry Fuller who has been a consummate professional throughout his two spells with the club.

"He has been a terrific servant, a huge asset to the dressing room and we all wish him the very best of luck for the future."


Everyone at Gillingham FC thanks Barry for his services; we wish him well for the future.
