Former Yavapai College soccer player Adam Barrett has signed a two-year extension with Gillingham Football Club in England's Second Division.

The new deal will keep 32-year-old Barrett at the club until the end of the 2014-15 season. Gillingham FC is currently on top of the league table with a 15-4-6 overall record.

Barrett was the captain of the 1998 Roughrider soccer team and led the club to a 23-2-0 overall record and a third-place national finish at the NJCAA National Championships in Trenton, N.J.

After battling to a 0-0 four-overtime tie, the Roughriders lost in penalty kicks to eventual national champions, State Fair (Mo.) College, in the national semifinals. Yavapai defeated Springfield (Ill.) College in the national consolation match for the third-place award.

State Fair's title was later vacated due to use of ineligible players.

Barrett joined the Gills in the summer, initially on a one-year deal with an option of a second. But such has been Barrett's impact this season the Gills have tied him down now to a longer term contract.

Barrett has played more than 400 league games for a number of clubs including Plymouth, Bristol Rovers and Mansfield Town. The defender made his name as captain at Southend United and played a key role in their promotion to the Championship in 2005-06. Following a string of commanding performances, he was voted Player of the Year by the supporters.

Following brief spells at Crystal Palace and Leyton Orient, Barrett signed with Bournemouth on a two-year contract last July where he was appointed Club Captain.
