Gillingham hope to improve their long injury list after employing ex-Charlton man Simon Webster as their new physio.

The former defender will be assisted by George Johnson, with Russell Holman joining as fitness coach.

Manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent: "George is poorly at the moment but we needed to bring another (physio) in anyway.

"He's an ex-player, a chartered physio, he's very good and so George will work alongside him."

He added: "Russell will work with us permanently - he's very professional and he'll bring a lot of different ideas to the football club."

The Gills signed striker Gary Wales from Hearts on Thursday's transfer deadline day, but currently have 11 players in the treatment room.

Webster played for eight League clubs, making 140 senior appearances in three years at Charlton before joining West Ham, where his career was dogged by injury.
