Experienced forward Gavin Reilly became United’s third 2020 summer signing as he joined the Blues on a one-year deal (with an option) in August.

Gretna-born Reilly was a Carlisle target in the January 2020 transfer window and scored the first goal in Cheltenham’s 2-0 victory over the Blues at Whaddon Road at the start of that season.

The lively striker exploded onto the scene with Queen of the South scoring 43 goals in 132 appearances in all competitions during a five-year stay.

Loan spells with Gretna and Hearts preceded a permanent move to Tynecastle in the summer of 2015. He had a loan with Dunfermline, before making the switch to St Mirren in July 2017.

A haul of 22 goals in 44 appearances captured the eyes of the scouts as the Saints earned promotion, and he signed for Bristol Rovers before heading on loan to Cheltenham for the first half of the 2019/20 campaign.
