AFC Bournemouth defender Baily Cargill has made his return from injury for Gillingham.
The centre back had been sidelined due to injury since he sustained ankle ligament damage whilst on loan with Coventry City towards the end of last season.
He joined League One side Gillingham on loan on transfer deadline day but an injury had prevented him from making his debut for his adopted club.
Gillingham manager Justin Edinburgh had hoped to involve him for the first time for the FA Cup fixture against Brackley Town, but he in the end had to wait for the Football League (EFL) Trophy match against West Brom Under 21’s.
Cargill played 61 minutes in the 2-0 victory.
Cargill told the Daily Echo…
“It was nice to be playing again. I felt a bit rusty and I wouldn`t say it was my best performance.
“But it was getting the minutes that mattered so I was happy with that…’
‘…I felt fit and strong, When I say it wasn`t my best performance, I mean my passing.
“Normally my passing is the strongest part of my game. That wasn`t at its best but I wouldn`t say it was a bad performance. I think I was solid and we kept a clean sheet. It wasn`t West Brom`s strongest team, so it was a good game for me to come into.”
