For me it depends on which Gerry turns up. If it's the player who looked such a threat against the likes of Harrogate and Wrexham then he could be a very important player for us, providing the physical presence alongside Grant. However if he's the player who looked disinterested against Sutton and Maidenhead and sat down whenever he didn't get a decision from the ref, then I'm not sure he's the player I'd want in a relegation battle.

Hopefully he can prove me wrong. Good luck Gerry!

To be fair to Gary Waddock, his three most recent signings have been a proven goalscorer in Grant, a defender in Finney that was Maidstone's player of the season, and now a player in Gerry who gives us a physical presence up top that no fit player in our squad has, all of whom should be important in a relegation battle. Need to extend Mannion's loan till the end of the season as I don't think we can gamble on Jake Cole being fit every game.

Welcome to the club on a permanent deal Gerry and good luck as you will need it with some of our supporters who were already on your case in last couple of games. :roll:

I'd like to think that now he has a permanent deal (as opposed to a stop-gap one month loan) he'll take the opportunity to put himself in the proverbial 'shop window'. If he can succeed here in our current situation then other clubs may well take an interest.

Interesting observation from Birdman on the first day Jerry's permanent signing that if he succeeds here while we are in our current situation he could attract attention from other clubs. Isn't it a bit premature to speculate on his departure?

Only seen him play the once which was against Wrexham & thought he did OK. This is definitely a good opportunity for him & I hope he does well.

A great signing and just what we need. A big lad who has good feet, good in the air and will with game time improve. Welcome big Gerry and may you have great success and become an East Bank and Shots legend.

Gerry McDonagh and Reece Grant look a very solid front two and will hopefully score the goals to keep us up.

Good signing that. We need someone with a presence that can bully defences.
Rendell should hopefully be back soon, meaning we’ll have a pretty handy front three.
