Gills boss Peter Taylor hopes he has signed a real crowd-pleaser in Jermaine McGlashan.
The lively winger has signed a two-year deal at Gillingham after rejecting an offer from former club Cheltenham Town.
McGlashan, 26, can play on either wing and will offer plenty of pace in the Gills team next season.
Taylor said: “He gets kicked but he gets up and has another go because he wants to take them on again. The crowd will enjoy watching him.
“He is hungry and that is important because I wouldn’t want someone to come here and stand still.
“I want them to come here and push on and he has certainly given me the impression he wants to do that.
“I have watched him a lot and I always thought what an exciting talent he was. He has just got to carry on that and I am sure he has got the ability and determination to do that.”
McGlashan spent several seasons playing non-league football before joining League 2 Aldershot in 2010. Two years there were followed by two seasons with Cheltenham Town.
After four years playing League 2 football, Taylor believes he has all the attributes to make the step up.
“He wants to get better and better and play in a higher division and he ticks all the boxes for me,” said Taylor.
