Sky Bet League One side Gillingham have bolstered their attacking options by signing free agent Danny Galbraith on a short-term deal, the club have confirmed.
The 24-year-old versatile attacker had been training with the club for two weeks and has now been signed on until the end of the season.
A naturally left footed winger, Galbraith can play on either flank or as a centre-forward – a trait that could prove to be useful to manager Peter Taylor.
“We’ve had a good look at him, he’s a left winger that can play on both sides and has good experience,” Taylor said to the club’s official site.
Galbraith began his career as a youth at Scottish club Hearts before making the switch to Premier League giants Manchester United in 2006. However, injuries halted his progress and he returned to Scotland with Hibs, where he played until 2013.
“He started at Manchester United and played in the FA Youth Cup against Arsenal when there was a record attendance. I think Gavin Hoyte played for Arsenal that day,” continued Taylor.
“Danny has come here on a contract until the end of the season and he knows it’s an opportunity for him to come and show what he can do.
“We are pleased to have him, he’s a good lad.
“I may take him to Doncaster, he’s a handy substitute and a clever footballer.”
The Gills currently sit in 20th position in the Sky Bet League One table, only one place above the relegation zone. The club have accumulated 19 points from 19 league games, and manager Peter Taylor will be hoping for a turnaround in form over the Christmas period.
