FORMER Colchester United right-back Ryan Jackson is looking for a new club after being released by Gillingham.

Jackson is one of nine players who are out of contract at the Gills this summer and will be released, when their deals expire.

The 31-year-old made 37 appearances for the Kent club this season, as they were relegated from League One following defeat to Rotherham United on the final day of the campaign.

In total, Jackson made 88 league and cup appearances in his second spell for Gillingham since joining them from Colchester in the summer of 2020.

Jackson spent three seasons with Colchester, having joined them from the Gills in the summer of 2017.

The experienced full-back made 140 appearances in all competitions for the U's, helping them reach the League Two play-offs under John McGreal in 2020.

Gillingham published their retained list, following the conclusion of the season.
