The goalkeeper was an ever-present during the 2012/13 season and quickly became a fan favourite at Priestfield among the Gills’ faithful.
He had joined Gillingham in that summer and is currently the club’s longest-serving player along with midfielder Bradley Dack – who was promoted to the first-team at the same time.
Nelson made 48 appearances for then manager Martin Allen’s side and was one of the main reasons as to why the Kent team gained promotion to League One, a consistent goalkeeper who knew how to keep the ball out of the net.
The now 35-year-old kept 19 clean sheets in that season, one of the reasons as to why he was named in the League Two Team of the Season.
So where is he now? Stuart Nelson is still at Gillingham and is, at the moment, still number one choice.
Although boss Justin Edinburgh did bring in Jonathan Bond on loan from Reading in the summer, but he is currently injured.
Nelson’s contract doesn’t expire until the summer of 2018 having signed a new two-year deal in June this year.
