It’s only Non-League but I like it. Blog 3: The curious cases of Gash and Pell

With the much needed 4-2 win for Hereford United on Saturday at Edgar Street, there were two players that stood out, one from each side with one similarity.
Harry Pell for The Bulls and Michael Gash for Cambridge, both played major parts for their respective teams in that game, but it wasn’t too long ago both players thought their futures at their clubs might well have been over.
Harry Pell controlled the midfield at the weekend, but things were very different last season.
On the 22nd March 2012, the then Hereford boss Richard O’ Kelly sent Pell to Cambridge United on an emergency loan. Making 7 appearances and scoring 2 goals, he established himself to the fans of the Abbey and fears of him never coming back to Edgar Street seemed inevitable. But, With The Bulls relegation from League 2 and with new boss Martin Foyle joining, Pell has once again become a main-stay in the centre of the park and his presence there has helped The Bulls so far this season.
Michael Gash, scored Cambridge’s two goals Saturday and looked dangerous throughout, but his future at Cambridge United earlier on this season had also been questioned.
Gash was sent on a month’s loan in August to Braintree, the reason given was to gain match fitness but the rumour mill began to turn, which led to questions that he may be leaving United as he had in his previous spell at the club.
Gash scored one Goal in his six-match loan spell, before being sent back to Cambridgeshire with a broken wrist that wasn’t reported by Braintree on his return. With Gash scoring two of his three Cambridge United goals this season on Saturday, it looks like Gash will carry on his role for the club; with more goals surely to flow from the 26-year old.
Both players showed Saturday why, even though they have been sent away from them, their clubs have welcomed them back and seen how useful they are now. Gash and Pell are what these clubs need in the Blue Square and now they are back; their futures at their clubs look bright once again.
