Margate give a debut to teenage Gillingham striker Joseph Gbode

Margate have announced the loan signing of Gillingham striker Joseph Gbode, and gave him a debut in their victory over Horsham on Saturday. He emerged from the bench just after the hour mark, and assisted the late winner- a perfect start to his time at Hartsdown Park.

Joseph already has first team experience for the Gills despite his tender years- he's only sixteen- coming on from the bench against Cheltenham Town and Crewe Alexandra last November. His loan is initially for a month.
