Jordan Graham says Gillingham fans made 2020/21 season without supporters 'enjoyable'

He left Priestfield this week after turning down a new contract, with the former Wolves player expected to join a Championship club going forward.

Graham said: "First of all I just want to say thank you to all you Gills fans for making an almost impossible season to enjoy, somehow enjoyable for me and the team.

"Your support hasn't gone unnoticed at all, believe me. It was a shame that we just fell short in the end but we kept a play-off push going until the 44th game of the season and we hope we made that as enjoyable for you all as we could.

"On a personal note I can't thank you all enough for the support and love you've shown me since day one. I hope I managed to repay that with my performances this season.

"I would also like to thank all my team-mates for all the memories that have been made over this last nine months on and off the pitch. There's been some moments I'll never forget!

"Also the chairman and coaching staff. They believed in me and allowed me to express myself this year and I wouldn't have had the year I have without them!

"Gillingham is a club that I'll forever owe a big chunk of my career to and I only hope the club can really kick on next season and take it one step further. I hope we can cross paths again in the future!"

Graham spent the second half of last season on loan at Gills before making the move permanent last summer. The 26-year-old scored 13 goals and provided numerous assists for his team-mates.
