Tom Flanagan glad for Gillingham loan switch
Tom Flanagan is pleased with how his loan spell at Gillingham has started.
The 20-year-old defender, on loan from MK Dons until January, has started both of the Kent club's games this season.
He told BBC Radio Kent: "I came here to try and force my way into the team. They signed a few players at Milton Keynes and I was side-lined a bit.
"Maybe it was because of my age and lack of experience. I took the opportunity with both hands and I'm glad I've done it."
He added: "I'm here to further my education and learn to play different ways."
The Gills began their League Two campaign with a 3-1 win over Bradford, and Flanagan is optimistic over their chances for the season.
"We've got a great team shape and if we can keep it tight at the back we're going to win a lot of games," he continued.
"The play-offs, at a minimum, is what we've set as a target. It's definitely possible."
