Mark Weatherly (born Colin Mark Weatherly in Ramsgate, January 18, 1958) is an English retired football (soccer) player. He spent his entire professional career with Gillingham, where he played in 457 Football League matches, a club record for an outfield player.[1]

Career

Although born in Kent Weatherly was on the books of Coventry City as a schoolboy but was not retained. He also played for non-league Canterbury City from the age of 15. After his release from Coventry, he was signed by Gillingham as an apprentice and soon found himself making his first-team debut. At just 16 years 218 days he was at the time the youngest player ever to play for the club.[1]

Originally a striker, he was switched to the defence in 1978 and played there or in midfield for the remainder of his career, which saw him play in over 500 matches in all competitions for the Kent club and win the club's Player of the Year award on two occasions.[1]

In 1989 he left Priestfield Stadium and dropped into non-league football. He joined Margate in 1991 and stayed there for ten years, including a spell as co-manager in the early 1990s during which he led the club to a Kent Senior Cup final victory at the ground of his old club Gillingham.[2] He later had a spell managing Margate's local rivals Ramsgate.[1]

In 2007 he returned to Margate as reserve team manager.[3] In 2009 he became Head of Youth Development at Ramsgate.
