Quotes

Gillingham boss, Steve Evans, has said: “There has been lots of Championship interest in Jack Tucker. 

“If it ever got to a level where I felt the club had to take it (an offer) then I would say what my opinion is to the chairman. We already have people in our minds if that was to happen, but I don’t see that happening.”

Academy graduate 

Tucker joined Gillingham at the age of seven and has risen up through their academy.

He was a key player for them at all youth levels before he was handed his first-team debut in October 2017 in a league fixture at Portsmouth.

The youngster was loaned out to non-league duo Greenwich Borough and Hastings United a few years ago to get some experience under his belt.
