Wright loaned to Gills

Brussels: Josh Wright has been loaned out to Gillingham for the rest of the season, to include the play offs if necessary. There is a certain irony in this as if the Gills are promoted we will be playing them next season. If the Spanners fail to go up, we will be one short of our own Kent cup.

Given that Charlton look certain to be relegated and Leamington are odds on favourites to be promoted, two more promotions and relegations for each side would see them face each other in the Conference.

As I was going through Ebbsfleet on the Eurostar on Sunday, I was reading about the big housing development planned for there and the boost that fast train services to London will give to the Medway area and much of Kent. All of these areas are served by the Rickshaw.

That's why I think Charlton could still be a long-term investment for someone at some point. On the other hand we could end up ground sharing with Ebbsfleet in the Conference.

That is all we need for The Name Droppers Diary to go negative

Do you think Ebbsfleet would have us?

Ha! Ha! Their own survival chances don't look that good. I never liked the name change.
