Gillingham pair Simon King and Alex Brown agree new loan deals and others could follow from Priestfield
Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler
is willing to listen to offers to loan out any of his fringe first
The Gills have already sent out
defender Simon King (pictured) to Plymouth and is open to
offers for others who are not in his immediate plans.
Hessenthaler said: "Players want to
play games and King is out at the moment. If we do get enquiries
about players that are not in our team then there may be a
possibility of them going out on loan."
Gillingham have 27 players at
their disposal but can only include 16 in a match-day
squad, with the number of substitutes this season being reduced
from seven to five.
That means many of the squad are
left in the stands during matches.
King this week extended his loan at
Plymouth for a second month and will now be there up to and
including their game on November 5.
King played 90 minutes during
Plymouth’s last match and after almost two full years out with an
ankle injury the minutes on the pitch will benefit everyone.
Hessenthaler said: "He will be
tested at Plymouth but then he needs to be because he’s had a real
long haul and the last couple of years have been very tough for
First year professional Alex Brown
this week joined Whitstable Town for a month and will go into the
team to face Faversham on Saturday.
