McGlashan fashions Fleet move

Ebbsfleet United have moved to fill gaps in the squad with the addition today of midfielder Jermaine McGlashan.

The 31-year-old, who played at the Kuflink Stadium for Wrexham last season and for Chesterfield earlier this campaign, has signed until the end of 2019/20 following his release by League Two club Swindon Town.

McGlashan previously played for Fleet director of football Steve Lovell at Gillingham from 2014-16 and has made more than 300 appearances at Leagues One and Two level over the past decade.

The Croydon-born attacker, who can operate wide or behind the strikers, began his career in non-league with the likes of Staines Town, Kingstonian, Merstham and Ashford Town. He moved into professional football with Aldershot Town in League Two in 2010 before Cheltenham Town spent a reported £60,000 to bring him to Gloucestershire in January 2012. After more than 100 games for the Robins, he moved to Kent and League One with Gillingham before spells at Southend United and Swindon Town. Last season he played 24 times in League Two for Swindon and also turned out in the National League for Wrexham and Chesterfield on loan.

He will wear the No.26 shirt and goes into the squad for Saturday’s Buildbase FA Trophy clash v King’s Lynn Town.

We welcome Jermaine to the Fleet and hope he enjoys a successful stay at the Kuflink Stadium.

Everyone at the Fleet would like to thank Tyler for his efforts this season

Meanwhile, loanee Tyler Cordner has returned to AFC Bournemouth after his loan spell came to an end earlier this week. The club did ask for an extension of Tyler’s deal but the Cherries have requested his return for a week to assess his progress.

We will make enquiries about bringing Tyler back to the Kuflink Stadium later this month but this is dependent on Bournemouth’s plans for him, so there is no guarantee of a return.

However that develops, we would like to thank Tyler for all his great efforts in a Fleet shirt over the past months and wish him the very best wherever his career takes him next.
