Gillingham manager Mark Stimson is pondering over whether to offer deals to the players currently on trial at Priestfield.

Former Yeovil defender Aaron Brown, Watford left-back Jordan Parkes and former Charlton pair Sam Long and Rasid Yussuff have featured in both of the Gills` pre-season friendlies so far.

Midfielder Yussuff and Parkes have been particularly bright in the wins over Folkestone and Dartford, while Brown has played the full 90 minutes in both games as Stimson looks to increase his central defensive options.

He said: "Aaron`s had a full 90 minutes again and we`ll probably have to make a decision on him this week but hopefully we can squeeze another couple of games out of the other boys before I make a decision.

"The young lad Yussuff has done well in the middle of the pitch, while Jordan looked good in the second half (at Dartford); he`s a neat and tidy football player."
