The Shouting Men column with Gillingham striker Rhys Murphy

By Luke Cawdell

Signing for the Gills has given me the chance to get my career back on track.

I am thankful for the opportunity and hopefully I will take it with both hands.

I have had a tricky 12 months, prior to joining Gillingham, so for me to get back into the Football League, in League 1, was a great opportunity.

I was starting to wonder where my career was going but this is a chance to revive it.

I had cancelled my contract at Forest Green and the Gillingham manager messaged me, asking if I want to come and train. I told him I would love to.

When the news went public that I was a free agent, it was nice to have a few messages on the phone, it made me feel that at least I would have a job.

I had a short trial here and from day one everyone has made me feel welcome.

Thankfully the manager has given me a contract to the end of the season and now it is about getting my head down, working as hard as I can and hopefully taking the chance when it comes.
