Dartford have completed the signing of Gillingham striker Adam Birchall on a one-month loan deal.

The 27-year-old has made three substitute appearances for the Gills this season as he continues his return from a cruciate ligament injury.

Gillingham manager Martin Allen told the club website: "In no way, shape or form is this the end of Adam Birchall.

"After a long rehab and extensive training he needs games to play in before he comes back to join us."

He added: "Without a shadow of a doubt he will be in our team and winning us games.

"Adam really does need to play matches and with Robbie Findley arriving at the end of last week, this is the ideal time."
