Gills boost attacking options with the capture of former Cheltenham winger Jermaine McGlashan

Gillingham FC are delighted to confirm that Jermaine McGlashan has agreed a two-year contract to join the club on July 1.

McGlashan, formerly of Aldershot and Cheltenham, rejected a new deal at Whaddon Road last month and signed papers at MEMS Priestfield at the weekend prior to going on holiday.

The 26-year-old began his career at non-league Staines Town before joining Merstham in 2009.

A year later he joined Ashford Town where he played 20 league matches before signing for Aldershot on a one-year contract in the summer of 2010.

He went on to play 75 games for the club and scored five times before Cheltenham Town secured his services on a two-and-a-half year deal in January 2012.

He enjoyed a good spell with the Robins, making 116 appearances in total and scoring 13 goals in all competitions.

On signing the winger Manager Peter Taylor said: "I'm very pleased, he is a player I have looked at for a long time and he's a free transfer because he's out of contract.

"I think the crowd will enjoy watching him play because he's very rapid - we have signed him for two years and I'm delighted."

This signing comes five days after clinching the signatures of Glenn Morris and Aaron Morris from Aldershot and AFC Wimbledon respectively.
