HORSHAM’S longest serving current player Gary Charman says he will happily play out of position for the rest of the season if it helps the side get out of trouble, adding: ‘throw me the gloves and I’ll go in goal’.

Charman is best known to Horsham fans for his darting runs in from the left wing, but having excelled at the centre of Horsham’s defence in the last three matches despite never playing there before, manager John Maggs has hinted he may keep the role for the remainder of the season.

Charman though is a doubt for Saturday’s home match with AFC Hornchurch after injuring his back at work. He said: “I’ve enjoyed it. I got the call from John (Maggs) the day before the Cray Wanderers game saying we’ve got a lot of good players going forward but were struggling at the back and would I do a job. To be honest I’d play anywhere for Horsham, if I got thrown some gloves I’d go in goal.”
