Pen Pic

More than a few eyebrows were raised in June 2007 when the Gills splashed out 200,000 on centre-back Simon King from Barnet.

It was the first time in seven years that the Gills had paid 200,000 for a player - but it was a fine investment.

Although he started the season on the bench or out of position at left-back under Ronnie Jepson, the arrival of Mark Stimson saw King handed a regular berth at the heart of defence, and he impressed with his commitment, bravery and ability.

King began his career at Oxford but made just four appearances before moving to Barnet in 2003, and he helped them win promotion to the Football League two years later.

Deservedly swept the board at the 2008/09 Player of the Year awards, and was named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year after his superb performances throughout the campaign.

Signed a new three-year contract in the summer of 2009 and will hope to help the club go from strength to strength.
