At 35 years old, he told Chad he wanted to find a club nearer home so he could be nearer his family and after signing for Gloucester, he smiled: “I am happy to move back down south.

“All my career I’ve been moving up and down the country as a pro.

“I've just got to get fully fit and start banging in goals again now.

“More importantly I want enjoy the beautiful game for the remainder of season. Its been a rollercoaster - long may the journey continue.”
