Mark Byrne Gillingham FC pen picture

By Luke Cawdell

Name: Mark Byrne   Position: Midfielder

It was no surprise to see Mark signed by former Gills boss Justin Edinburgh in the summer of 2016, linking up with the player who he previously had at Newport and Rushden. The Dubliner, who spent four years at Nottingham Forest, is a hard-working midfielder and scored a memorable goal against Premier League Watford last season in the League Cup.
