Young Striker Luis Cumbers Loaned Out to Ebbsfleet United

14 March 2009 by

Luis Cumbers, a first year professional at Gillingham, has signed for the Gills’ Kent rivals Ebbsfleet United on a one month loan deal.

The 20-year old striker moves to Stonebridge Road looking to gain more first-team experience a league below in the Blue Square Premier.

Cumbers has been a consistent scorer in the Gillingham Reserves with seven goals this season, and also bagged a first-team strike with the last goal in the Gillingham’s 4-0 home demolition of Rotherham United back in November.

Cumbers will join ‘The Fleet’ in time to play in Saturday’s FA Trophy semi-final first leg against fellow Blue Square Premier side¬†Stevenage Borough. He will remain at Ebbsfleet until April 9th, with his last game being a league match against Kiddiminster Harriers.

    Amazing article Yoosof. I have read your description of yourself on Bleachers Report and I found it most intersting. It seems that we have loads in common, for example, you mention that you adore table tennis. That is so true of myself as well, although I perfer to play than watch. I’m an afficionado of Seedfield Club in Manchester.

    I love your confidence bverging on arrogance as well. It’s the true sign of a champion. Keep up the good work and I will look forward to your future articles with interest.
