Who Is Gary Silk

Former  Portsmouth, Mansfield Town, Grimsby Town, Notts County, Barnet, Wycombe Wanderers and Boston United midfield and defensive utility man, Gary Silk, is set to link up with the Imps and his former manager David Holdworth this week.

Gary spent three seasons at the Stags, two of which were under Holdsworth’s stewardship.  He was player of the season in 2010 and played over a hundred games in what was arguably a dark period for Mansfield with money short and even a lock out from the stadium, as ownership issues persisted. The Grimsby duo made him their first summer signing last term but injury restricted him to just 24 appearances and he was released this May.

Silk is known as a right back, but can play on the right or centre of midfield. He has a good delivery and great array of passing and certainly has a well-timed, tasty challenge on him.  With Holdsworth looking primarily for a centre-back Silk will certainly have to go some to impress the manager and grow a couple of inches as he is just 5′ 9″.  He could be willing to come in on non-contract terms  given the free agent is at a loose end with just three weeks to go before the season starts.
