Flitney departs Gills on loan

Flitney: Farmed out

Gillingham goalkeeper Ross Flitney has joined Blue Square Bet South club Eastleigh on a month-long loan deal.

Flitney has not featured for the League Two table-topppers this season and is eligible to play in the non-league club's fixture away to Eastbourne Borough on Saturday.

The 28-year-old started out at Arsenal before moving to Fulham in 2003 where he trained under Edwin van der Sar, before spells at Brighton, Doncaster and non-league Dover followed.

He signed for Gills in 2011 and has since made 27 appearances for the club.
