Midfielder puts pen to paper on new deal.

Henry Woods has signed a contract extension at MEMS Priestfield Stadium which will see him remain at the club for the 2020/21 campaign.

The midfielder, who joined the club as a first year scholar, has to date featured four times for the Gills first-team and made his first competitive start in the EFL Trophy against Ipswich Town in October 2019.

He has impressed during pre-season and has been rewarded with a new deal. He has been allocated shirt number 23.

Speaking to the club website Henry said: “I’ve been here for a few years now and hopefully this season will be my best yet.

“I feel this is the year I need to try and break through; I’m fitter and I’m sharper. There is a lot of quality in the squad which I can hopefully learn from and improve as a player.”

Gaffer Steve Evans added: “Henry has earned his contract extension. At present we are looking closely as to whether he goes out on loan or is capable of competing for a first-team place.

“He is improving every week so it is interesting.”
