Former Gillingham, Millwall and Luton Town midfielder Danny Spiller signs for Ryman League Division 1 South side Herne Bay

By Alex Hoad

Former Gillingham, Millwall and Luton midfielder Danny Spiller has joined Ryman League side Herne Bay after more than two-and-a-half years out of the game.

The 33-year-old Maidstone-born star came through the youth system at Priestfield and made more than 120 appearances between 2000 and 2007 before moving to the New Den.

After just eight appearances in two years with Millwall, the versatile Spiller, who also appeared as a forward and a full-back, had short spells at Wycombe and Welling before signing for Dagenham & Redbridge.

A return to Priestfield followed in the summer of 2010 with Spiller going on to make 45 appearances over the following two seasons.

Spiller signed a two-year deal with Luton Town in June 2012 but failed to make a single appearance after suffering an Achilles tendon injury shortly after signing, and his deal was terminated in the summer of 2013.

After discussions this week with Bay boss Sam Denly, Spiller's arrival at Winch's Field was revealed on Thursday morning.

Denly said: "It goes without saying he is a massive signing for the club. He will bring a wealth of experience that is only going to benefit and help the squad, youngsters and club in general as we look to finish the season strongly."

Spiller goes straight into the squad for Saturday's Ryman League Division 1 match at struggling Ramsgate.

Denly added: "I would like to welcome Danny to the football club and look forward to working with him for the remainder of the season."
