Jermaine McGlashan: Looking to kick on

The 26-year-old winger left Cheltenham at the end of the season after rejecting a new deal and said the prospect of joining Gills ticked all the right boxes after serving his time in Sky Bet League Two.

McGlashan told the club's official website: "Gillingham has a good fan base and with the gaffer being an ex-winger I feel I can improve. He wants athletic players this year and I feel I fit in to that criteria.

"I turned down the club in the past but it didn't happen then, I'm here now and hopefully I can hit the ground running.

"It's my first opportunity in League One so it's important I get my sharpness and get a good pre-season under my belt."

McGlasham has nearly 200 professional appearances under his belt since joining Aldershot in 2010, after coming through at Staines and plying his trade with various non-league clubs.

He left Aldershot for Cheltenham, where he spent two-and-a-half successful years, before leaving in the summer. He made 46 appearances for the Robins last season, scoring six goals.

It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
