Experienced keeper returns to Gills on loan.
The Gills have added a goalkeeper to their squad ahead of Saturday’s trip to AFC Wimbledon with the capture of Glenn Morris on loan until January.
The 38-year-old rejoins the club having spent time at Priestfield between 2014 and 2016 and is likely to go straight into the squad for the game at Plough Lane at the weekend.
Glenn arrives from Crawley Town having been voted the club’s “Player of the Year” four times (2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2021-22) and has played close to 550 games during his career, which began with Leyton Orient in the early 2000’s.
The experienced stopper will compete for a place in goal with Jake Turner, with Ashley Maynard-Brewer likely to be out until the New Year with a shoulder problem.
Morris started out at Brisbane Road, making his pro debut for Orient in October 2001 in an EFL Trophy fixture away to Dagenham and Redbridge before making his first league appearance in April 2002.
The stopper made 150 appearances for Orient before departing for Southend United in 2010. He spent two seasons at Roots Hall, featuring 64 times prior to a stint at Aldershot. It was in in the summer of 2014 that Peter Taylor, then Gills boss, brought Morris to Priestfield for his first spell at ME7.
He made 12 appearances in all competitions before his move to Crawley where he has, to date, played 269 games across a six-year spell.
A full interview with Glenn will appear on iFollow later today.
