Exeter City sign Matt Gill on loan from Bristol Rovers
Exeter City have signed Bristol Rovers midfielder Matt Gill on loan until January.
Gill used to play for City between 2006 and 2009, where he made 148 appearances for the club scoring 14 goals. He helped the club achieve promotion back to the football league in the 2007/08 season before signing for Norwich City in 2009.
It is thought Gill has been brought in as cover for the injured Matt Oakley, who could be out for some time have damaged his ankle in the 3-1 win over Plymouth Argyle.
Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale said: “Matt is someone who knows his way around the club already and he will understand the core elements of the way we play. He should slot into the team seamlessly.”
Gill has been given the squad number 35 and will be eligible for selection for tomorrow’s trip to Glanford Park to meet Scunthorpe.
