is a young verstaile defender who joined City on a one month loan
spell from Conference North neighbours Worcester City at the start
of December, a time when Gloucester desperately need to find some
defensive confidence after consecutive 5-2 and 4-1 home defeats. Along
with fellow loan signing Ollie Barnes of Bristol Rovers Khan will
provide the club with crucial cover as Lyndon Tomkins recovers from
a hamstring problem and fellow Tigers' stopper Tom Hamblin misses
some games over the Christmas period due to work commitments. The
Worcester University student is a regular member of the Worcester
first team squad but after some impressive performances earlier this
season he has struggled to get a regular spot since recovering from
a lung infection.
Khan has progressed through the Worcester City youth team to make
his first team debut more than two years ago. Can play anywhere
at the back but seems most comfortable as defensviely minded full-back.
Had a highly succesful and plaudit laden youth career but has found
it harder to nail down a regular spot in the first team at Worcester
where he has regularly captained the reserve side. Will hope to
have more of an impact with us than fellow Worcester graduate Troy
Wood after the young striker concluded a disappointing period on
loan at Meadow Park a few weeks ago. Khan will write himself a quick
footnote in Gloucester City history as he is set to be the first
Asian to play for the Tigers.
