I attended the Exeter game at home earlier on this year, the F.A Cup tie... and as i was exiting, I don't know if anyone saw, but who should be sitting in the club, but Jimmy Jackson, I've just got a feeling his Gravesend through and through, maybe if it doesn't work out at the Daggers, he might return at the end of his contract, if we wanted him to, we most probably wouldn't buy him back...Does anyone know when his contract expires, and does anyone agree me... or do you think I am talking crap!

Hes a legend!!!

We would only need him back if Walshe doesn't sign next season. Otherwise a midfield from Sidebe McKimm Owen Pinnock Perkins Drury (Protheroe) looks good enough without Jacko.

We could do with some suspension cover at left back for Skins for the odd game now and again

Jimmy attends a lot of our games. He was at our match away to Margate, for example.

Jacko may not play for us now, but he is a local lad, and a life long supporter, as is his dad.
Good luck to him in his career, and thanks for still supporting us.

I think we covered this before......and the conclusion seemed to be Jimmy was a great servant....but he was history........and the club should look forwards and not backwards!
Jimmy would be welcomed back by everyoneif it ever happened!

He wouldn't make our first choice line up now.

Jacko's best position was left midfield - he wasn't what I'd call a natural left back.

Agree with FF, I can't see him making the starting line up now. IMO he struggled a bit last season and I was surprised when D&R signed him. Great memories but onwards & upwards, I say.

I think we should try to move forwards, look at our position this time last year? What's the point of trying to dig some of that back up? Jimmy was and is a Fleet legend, I can remember how shocked I was when he left!! Still, if he did return, his reliability and consistency would be matched by Walshe's flair and speed and Drury's skill and sheer clas

Justin Skinner is, and always has been, a better left back than Jacko.

Hi Nick,
small world isn't it.
I see your making up for a late start as your name appears frequently on several forums.
Michael now plays for Gravesend Spartans in the Bexley League, a new team in their first season & it shows.
How about you.
As to the Fleet, it's great to see them become a strong unit after the very poor start this season & I think Jacko would have a struggle to get back into this squad.

Mike F
