Winger Connor Mahoney made his debut at the weekend, following his loan signing from Huddersfield Town, becoming the eighth senior player to sign on during the August transfer window.

Mahoney was the “last bit of the jigsaw” according to the Gills boss, who hopes he is now equipped with a team that can challenge for a top-seven place in League 2 this season.


Newcomer Mahoney follows the arrival of Jonny Williams, Max Clark, Shad Ogie, Scott Malone, Ashley Nadesan and Macauley Bonne on permanent deals, with defender Conor Masterson also agreeing to stay on after two successful loan spells.


Harris is delighted with the recruitment they’ve done this summer.


“That is us done,” said the manager. “Our thought process as a football club is that we’ve done our business, in and out, we will stick at that.


“If something has to adjust over the next seven days we will pick it up as we go but as far as I am concerned, I understand as a football club we have brought in some really good players and I’m really pleased with the balance of the squad. I don’t expect us to be fortunate enough to bring anyone else in.”
