FORMER Lions player Ben Thompson has admitted he is enjoying his football again after leaving the club.

Thompson joined Gillingham during the January transfer window, bringing an end to his ten-year association with Millwall.

Despite only a month passing since the move, Thompson has already impressed for Gillingham and is becoming a key player at the Priestfield Stadium.

“I am enjoying football again,” said the midfielder, as per Kent Online.

“The last six months have been tough, with not being involved and not being in squads and sitting around doing nothing really, just training. I just want to play and enjoy my football and that is what I am doing here.

“I am enjoying every minute of it, playing football again, we have a tough task on our hands but I am relishing it.

“The other night [against AFC Wimbledon] was the most comfortable I had felt on the pitch since joining. It takes a few games to get into the rhythm again and it has been a while since I have played three games in a week.

I feel fit, I feel sharp, I think I have still got more to give, [I want to] add some goals and assists to my name and help push the team up the table.”
