Sheppey United have successfully secured the services of Gillingham FC promising talent Matty Macarthur on a work experience loan
18-year-old Aussie Macarthur is comfortable in any advanced midfield role, with the left flank one of his preferred.
The Ites have been monitoring Macarthur for some time, including watching him bag two goals against Chatham Town during pre-season where he lined up with fellow loanee Sam Gale. Early season Matty was on the fringes of the Gills first team but an injury soon slowed his progress.
More recently Macarthur was on loan at Margate where he scored a 30-yard screamer.
Ites fans may well get to see Matty and his famous mullet haircut this Saturday, with our new signing in the squad for our game versus Beckenham Town at Holm Park.
We thank Gillingham FC once again for continuing to support and provide Sheppey United with their promising prospects.
