'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Akinfenwa Returns!

Gillingham have resigned Adebayo Akinfenwa, a couple of years after he left Priestfield.

Manager Martin Allen, as he told the official website, said: 'It is my gut feeling that he will do well in a Gillingham shirt, playing for the club that he loves.

'Opposition teams cannot handle him or deal with him.'

'I'm sure, with the passion of our supporters, that he will respond on the big stage called Priestfield. He will be a very valuable member of our squad, on and off the field.'

The 31-year-old, who spent the 2010/11 season with the Gills, parted company with Northampton in the summer after the lost in the League Two play off final but will now be back in League One with Gillingham for at least one-year after signing his year-long contract.

Akinfenwa has the look of a bouncer about him but he definitely has ability.

The second half of last season was poor for him but he still managed 17-goals for the Cobblers and if he can score a fraction of that amount this season it'll go a long way to, at least, keeping Gillingham up!

Akinfenwa said this of his Twitter page: 'It's official I am now a Gillingham FC player.

'I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead and looking forward to bring #BMO [Beast Mode] to Priestfield.'
