Peter Taylor is aiming for a trio of new signings before the season starts.

The Gills boss aims to strengthen both his defensive and attacking departments before the season opener on August 9.

Six players have already joined since the end of last season but Taylor hasn’t finished yet.

He said: “I am very confident that we will have three more coming in. I thank the chairman for that. He has been true to his word.

“We let quite a lot go (at the end of last season) and I haven’t over-spent either. I have made sure the wages are right and it’s good.

“I am talking to people and meeting them and we will see how it goes.”

Taylor has already brought in several new faces.

Goalkeeper Glenn Morris, defensive midfielder Aaron Morris, midfielders Josh Pritchard and Doug Loft and wingers Jermaine McGlashan and Brennan Dickenson have all signed.

Taylor said: “I am very happy with what we have got.

“We have signed a goalkeeper and everything else has been in midfield. I do know people like Pritchard and Morris can play centre-half and full-back and there are still defenders I am chasing.

“I know we are going to need some experience as well but the way it is coming over, it’s as if I’m not signing any defenders. But that’s how it is.

“I can assure people that I half know (who is coming) and it’s about timing and whatever and at the end of the day there is a space in that puzzle that needs filling and that’s what I’ve done.

“I know eventually that by the first game of the season there will be enough bodies in here that people will know we have enough cover.”
