Gillingham have signed former Charlton Athletic winger Mark Marshall and ex-Colchester United striker Mikael Mandron, both of whom were free agents.

Marshall, 32, left the Addicks after a two-year spell when his contract expired at the end of the season.

His move to the League One side comes after a planned loan deal for winger Nathan Thomas was cancelled, with Thomas instead re-signing for Carlisle.

Former Sunderland trainee Mandron, 24, arrives after two terms at Colchester.

"He gives us a presence, strength and mobility at the top end of the pitch and adds good competition to what are already good players in that department," said Gills boss Steve Evans.

"I am sure the fans will be delighted at the addition. Today we have added two talented players to a good squad of men in our dressing room who, in my opinion, are shaping up eloquently."

Marshall has played for numerous clubs, including Bradford City, Port Vale, Coventry City and Barnet. The length of the deal has not been disclosed.
