As the song says "breaking up is hard to do" and never has a truer word been sung about the news today that Gez is to leave Woking after nine wonderful years at the club.
Whether it's one of his many legendary free kicks, fabulous long-range strikes, that header away at Luton, that record-breaking scoring run or scoring the winner away at Maidenhead to clinch promotion back to the National League, we will all have our own special memories of Gez playing for Woking.
A product of the very successful Academy at Woking, run by Graham Baker, Gez made his first-team debut age 17 against Southport on Saturday 12th August 2006. He went on to play for the England C team and in total made 352 appearances for Woking, scoring 111 goals.
Quite apart from his incredible goalscoring record, Gez will always be remembered for the courageous way he fought back from that career-threatening injury against Dartford when he was in his prime and for the way he's always conducted himself both on and off the pitch. As the song goes that's sung after him by the adoring Kingfield faithful, "always believe in your Sole" and we always did, particularly when he was lining up a free kick twenty-five yards or more out from goal.
Sadly, it's now time to say goodbye to a very special player and to thank him for everything and everyone at Woking would like to wish Gez all the very best in his future career.
