Newly Promoted Gillingham have re-signed 31-year old striker Adebayo Akinfenwa.
The now League One club have signed the player dubbed ‘The Beast’ on a one-year deal. Akinfenwa spent the 2010-11 campaign with the Gills, scoring 11 goals during his spell at Priestfield Stadium. Akinfenwa was released from Northampton after their play-off final defeat to Bradford.
Manager Martin Allen told the club website: “It is my gut feeling that he will do well in a Gillingham shirt, playing for the club that he loves.”
He added: “Opposition teams cannot handle him or deal with him.
“I’m sure, with the passion of our supporters, that he will respond on the big stage called Priestfield.
“He will be a very valuable member of our squad, on and off the field.”
