Ebbsfleet United have boosted their threadbare squad by signing former Gillingham wideman Jermaine McGlashan.
The 31-year-old has penned a deal until the end of the current season at Stonebridge Road having been released by League 2 Swindon at the start of this month.
McGlashan has not featured for Swindon this season but is no stranger to National League football having featured for Wrexham and Chesterfield in 2019.
He played under new Ebbsfleet director of football Steve Lovell at Gillingham when Lovell was one of the 'gang of four' put in charge of the club after Peter Taylor was sacked.
McGlashan made more than 50 appearances for the Gills having joined from Cheltenham Town. He moved to Southend after leaving Priestfield.
Ebbsfleet have handed McGlashan the no.26 shirt and he will train with his new team-mates at their K Sports training ground on Thursday ahead of Saturday's FA Trophy clash at home to King's Lynn. His arrival will be a welcome boost with Myles Weston still sidelined by injury.
