PositionForward

Gillingham signed Marlon from Third Division Barnet for a substantial fee during the 2000 close season.

Marlon took some time to settle in at Gillingham and it was not until November that he netted for the first team.

However after this he went from strength to strength and the goals began to flow to the extent that he finished the campaign as the club's leading scorer with 15 goals from 26 starts.

Very quick over ten yards, he is cool in front of goal and works tirelessly for the cause.

Marlon joined Nottingham Forest for £950,000 in November 2003 with a contract up to June 2008 but he was made available for transfer in May 2005.

After a loan spell, he joined Watford in December 2005 with a contract to June 2010.

He joined Wigan Athletic in January 2008 with a contract to June 2011 that was cancelled in October 2009.

Marlon joined Coventry City in September 2010 with a contract to June 2011.

He joined Birmingham City in July 2011 with a three-year contract that was cancelled in August 2013.

Marlon joined Sheffield United in September 2013 with a contract to June 2014 that was cancelled in December 2013.
