Santos Gaia Player Profile
Debut: Altrincham (A, 1-2), 12/08/2006
Having fallen out of favour at Exeter City during the 2005/6 season, the Brazilian defender made his move to Conference rivals Stevenage Borough in summer 2006 as part of Mark Stimson’s rebuilding efforts.
Gaia is capable of playing at either left-back or left centre-back, and he was an integral part of the team that won the FA Trophy in 2007. Loved by the fans for his full commitment, Gaia fell out of favour at Broadhall Way upon the arrival of Mark Arber, and the Brazilian made the switch to Grays Athletic.
