Margate have released a statement confirming that experienced goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley will be spending a few weeks away from the club.
The 33-year-old has had spells at numerous clubs since coming through at Chelsea, where he appeared briefly at the end of the Blues’ first two Premier League-winning seasons under Jose Mourinho. He went on to represent the likes of Millwall, Bradford City and Newport County before signing for Bostik League Premier side Margate in May.
The Gate released the following statement on their official site:
‘Margate Football Club can confirm that first team goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley has been allowed compassionate leave for the month of December.
Pidgeley will spend time away from the game to focus on his personal life and the club fully supports him and looks forward to welcoming Lenny back to Margate FC in the New Year.
Everyone at the club sends Lenny all our best.’
