The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Do­minic Hodg­son

GILLING­HAM striker Danny Ked­well is al­ready rar­ing to go for next sea­son af­ter seal­ing a new con­tract at Pri­est­field.

De­spite in­juries de­rail­ing the sec­ond half of the 30year-old’s sea­son, he said it wasn’t a tough de­ci­sion to put pen to paper on a new twoyear deal.

“I en­joy play­ing for the club I sup­port,” said Ked­well.

“It’s also eas­ier for me just to be here with my fam­ily, so it was a no-brainer re­ally. I love play­ing here.

“I have some un­fin­ished busi­ness and hope­fully next sea­son I can start off with a bang again.”

How­ever, Sam Bax­ter, Ge­orge Howard, Gary Bor­row­dale, Joe Carter, Craig Fa­gan, Steven Gre­gory, Char­lie Lee, Myles We­ston, Adam Bir­chall, Stephen Butcher and Sam Mug­gle­ton have all left the Gills.

Fol­low­ing the clearout, man­ager Peter Tay­lor said he has no in­ten­tion of rush­ing into any trans­fer de­ci­sions.

“You can only spend your money once,” said Tay­lor.

“And if you have ev­ery­thing done very quickly I can as­sure you that you’ll get a phone call of­fer­ing you some­thing which you’re in­ter­ested in but the money is spent.

“I’m not rush­ing to spend the money. I’m hav­ing a close look, do­ing my checks and we’ll go from there.”
