Name: Kevin Gall
Date of Birth: 4 February 1982
Place of Birth: Merthyr Tydfil
Gally began his career at Newcastle in 2000 before joining Bristol Rovers just a year later. He started merely 28 first team games in his two years at the Memorial Stadium before being released Ray Graydon in February 2003 despite several Welsh under 21 caps. Kevin signed for Yeovil after a successful trial period at Huish Park (writes George Murray).
Having scored on his debut against Kettering within four minutes of the match, Kevin went onto form a great partnership with Kirk Jackson while scoring several vital goals between them to ensure promotion to the Football League in April 2003.
He appeared to find the step-up to League Two difficult while managing to only find the back of the net eight times in the league. Gary Johnson brought in fresh competition up-front including the arrival of Phil Jevons and Polish striker Bartosz Tarachulski and as a result he ended up playing impressive role at right midfield while no longer having the pressure to add his name to the team sheet. Kevin played a crucial role in aiding his side to promotion to League One while playing in 44 league games during the season. His outstanding performance in the FA Cup Third Round again Charlton at the Valley was rewarded when he was voted FA player of the round.
During the 2005-06 season, Kevin found himself squeezed further out of contention. Although he was invariably part of Yeovil's sixteen throughout the season, he featured more and more frequently on the substitutes bench, playing 20 minutes football a week in most cases. Notably he did score the crucial late goal in the Carling Cup win at Ipswich Town, but Kevin seemed to no longer thrive as much on the 'super sub' role during the second half of the season and slowly faded from the club's plans.
On May 11th 2006, it was announced that he was being released at the end of his contract with Yeovil Town, and on May 31st 2006, he agreed a contract with Carlisle United who had just been promoted to League One, with the Cumbrian club having chased him through the majority of the previous season without fruition.
