Club Connections: Walsall v Gillingham

18 November 2017

Ahead of this afternoon's match between Walsall and Gillingham, Joshua Bunting profiles four players who have represented both clubs...

Febian Brandy

Primarily a forward but also capable of playing out wide, Manchester-born Brandy scored seven goals in 34 matches for Walsall during the 2012/13 season. The former Manchester United trainee made his debut in a League Cup win at Brentford and scored his first goal for the club in a 2-2 draw against Crawley Town. He spent the 2009/10 campaign on loan at Gillingham, bagging two goals in nine games.

 

Gary Wales

The striker started his career at Hamilton and scored 11 goals in 35 games before moving to Hearts for £50,000. In five years at Tynecastle, Wales scored 17 goals in 92 appearances. He was then sent out on loan to Walsall in 2004, scoring once in seven matches, before subsequently signing for Gillingham and also netting once, against Coventry City.

 

Iffy Onuora

Paul Merson hired Onoura as a player/coach for Walsall in July 2004 but his time at the club was short-lived, with him being released in October 2004. He subsequently retired from playing after 133 goals in nearly 500 professional matches. The former Scotland international striker enjoyed three spells with the Gills, netting 23 goals in 62 league appearances from 1996 to 1998, before re-signing in 2000 following a loan spell. He also took caretaker charge of Gillingham in 2007.

 

Trevor Benjamin

The journeyman forward represented 29 different teams during his career, including Walsall and Gillingham, both on loan. He scored twice in eight appearances for the Saddlers, including our League Two promotion-winning goal at Notts County in April 2007. He played for Gillingham on loan from Leicester in 2003, netting once in four outings.
