He has played in the Football League with Mansfield Town and also represented Luton Town, Southport, St Albans City, Alfreton Town, AFC Telford United, Woking and Havant & Waterlooville.

Wealdstone have had a very active transfer market so far this summer with Poku becoming manager Bobby Wilkinson’s 13th signing and Gayle becoming the 17th player to depart.
