Pritchard joins Gillingham

Gillingham have signed former Manchester United trainee Josh Pritchard on a two-year deal from Fulham.

The 21-year-old, who regularly featured for the Cottagers' Under-21 side but failed to make a first-team breakthrough, becomes Gills' fifth signing of the summer.

Pritchard made three appearances for Norwegian side Tromso during a loan spell, including the club's Europa League clash against Tottenham.

Gillingham manager Peter Taylor said: "He's been at two very good football clubs for quite a while. He's a very good passing midfield player that can play defensive as well.

"He's very highly recommended from people I know and trust - he's not known over here because he hasn't played much football but he knows it's time for him to get playing league football.

"I think he sees the opportunity from us as a good one."
