Gillingham confirm Ben Williamson signing

League One rivals Gillingham have confirmed the signing of striker Ben Williamson on a two-year contract.

Williamson told the official Gillingham website: “I was at Port Vale for four years and sometimes it’s good for a change and I’m moving back towards London now which is a bonus.”

Williamson’s departure leaves the Valiants short of numbers upfront. Tom Pope has joined Bury which leaves just Louis Dodds, Achille Campion and youngster Jonathan Kapend currently under contract.

However, there is plenty of time between now and the end of the summer for Vale to add new faces.
