GILLS SIGN TWO IN JANUARY SALES

3 January 2014

Peter Taylor signs loan striker ahead of the televised game with Wolverhampton Wanderers

With leading scorer Danny Kedwell set for a spell on the sidelines following his hernia operation, and Antonio German joining Northampton Town on loan, Gills manager Peter Taylor has moved quickly to strengthen his attacking options.

Ipswich Town striker Jack Marriott has joined Gillingham on a youth loan, which will keep him at MEMS Priestfield Stadium for the remainder of the 2013/14 season and the youngster arrives in a rich vein of form.

Having made his Championship debut against Burnley in the Tractor Boys’ final League game of the 2012/13 campaign, Jack has recently returned from a prolific loan spell at Skrill Premier side Woking where he scored nine goals in nine games.

The promising young centre-forward’s paperwork was signed in time for him to feature in the squad for tonight's clash with Wolves.

Meanwhile Ipswich team mate Elliott Hewitt will return to Priestfield after agreeing to extend his loan until the end of January.

Elliott impressed in both the right-back and central midfield roles after joining the Gills in November but returned to Portman Road with an ankle injury last month.

Finally midfielder Harry Grant has made his loan move to Skrill South Maidenhead United permanent.

The 19 year-old was signed on loan from Sheffield Wednesday last season, debuting in the Gills final fixture of the season at Burton Albion but has found his first team chances limited since signing a development contract in August.
