DERRY’S DE­LIGHT AT LOAN AR­RIVALS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Ben Baker

CAM­BRIDGE have signed Sh­effield United de­fender Terry Kennedy and Gilling­ham for­ward Ben Wil­liamson on loan un­til Jan­uary 3.

Kennedy, 22, has made just one league ap­pear­ance for the Blades this sea­son and Wil­liamson, 26, has failed to score in his nine for Gilling­ham af­ter ar­riv­ing from Port Vale in the sum­mer.

“Terry has come from a very good foot­ball club, and I’m thank­ful to Nigel Ad­kins for making the loan achiev­able,” said boss Shaun Derry.

“He is a very com­mand­ing cen­tral de­fender which will put ex­tra pres­sure on what we al­ready have in that po­si­tion.

“Like ev­ery player he will have to earn his place in the side, but the com­pe­ti­tion will cer­tainly be fierce.

“The sit­u­a­tion is sim­i­lar with Ben, hav­ing come from an­other good club in Gilling­ham, who I am also very grate­ful for al­low­ing us to com­plete the loan.

“In terms of Ben’s per­for­mances, I hope he can re­pro­duce the form that we saw dur­ing his time with Port Vale. If he is able to strike up a sim­i­lar re­la­tion­ship with the play­ers we have here, then I’m sure he will do well for us.”
