Flinders out on loan

Last updated : 08 September 2006 By Nik Taylor

League One side Gillingham have snapped up summer signing Scott Flinders on an initial one-month loan deal.

The 20-year-old keeper only joined Palace from Barnsley last month, but has been allowed to leave Selhurst Park in order to gain more first-team experience.

Flinders has made just one first team appearance this season, in the League Cup defeat against Notts County.

He is behind Gabor Kiraly in the pecking order, with the Hungarian reaffirming his position as the Eagles' number one with some solid performances after retracting his pre-season transfer request.
