'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Intentions Made Clear Once Again

Nicky Forster has again reiterated his desire to continue his playing career as long as he possible can.

Forster is on loan with us until the end of the season when the 36-year-old will then be out of contract with Brighton and this means he'll be looking for a new club. Yet he has again said he's got no plans to retire, Forster BBC Radio Kent: "Retirement is not in my thoughts because all the time I remain fit and mobile I can do a job.

"I've tried to be successful for every club that I've played for. My contract with Brighton is up at the end of the season when I'll consider my options.

"One thing's for sure, I want to carry on playing."

The striker professional career has seen him take in spells with Gillingham (joining them in 1992 from non-league Horley Town), Brentford, Birmingham City, Reading, Ipswich Town, Hull City, Brighton and finally Charlton during his loan spell. Where it will all end isn't know yet?

During this time, in which he's previously played for Phil Parkinson at Hull he scored 188 goals and his next target is 200 and this is added incentive for him to carry on, Forster added: "I set myself targets. At the moment I'm in the 180s so I'm striving for 200."

I've previously said that I have no doubt that Forster will continue to play and will have offers, I'm still not sure that he'll be playing with Charlton next season though? If we can gain promotion back to The Championship I would think these chances are even less likely yet I do believe that he will be snapped up by someone and manage to get to his 200 goal target next season.

Great pro - sadly scored against us recently but has done very well this season with both Brighton and Charlton considering he fell out with their manager, Gus Poyet.

He's done ok with us and might be around next season? I wouldn't rule it our as we've not got a lot of money to bring in anyone much better?
