Seven is the magic number for Nicky

Ex Gillingham first-team coach Nicky Southall signs for Town after he spoke with WTFC manager Justin Luchford at the D&J Tyres Belmont Ground about wanting to get his playing boots back on. Luchford saying: “No doubt the word will go around that I have mortgaged my house to bring Nicky to Whitstable, in fact it’s not about the money we are good mates and he just wanted to get back playing again.

Picture: Nicky with (left) WTFC Chairman Gary Johnson and WTFC manager (right) Justin Luchford: Nicky has still at least a couple of years playing in him yet, but I am a realist and understand his desire is to coach full time so he is with us for the foreseeable future that’s as much as I can say. He will be a fantastic addition to the side, both on the pitch in the number seven shirt but also on the coaching side working with Richard (Langley) and me.”
