Cambridge United have signed Bristol Rovers winger Jake Gosling on a six-month loan deal.

The Gibraltar international started his career at Exeter City before moving to Bristol.

The 23-year-old will stay at the Abbey Stadium until January.

We’re very pleased to welcome Jake to our Football Club.

He brings added variety to the options we already have, and is a particularly important addition following the loss of Harrison Dunk.

Having had two years of success at his parent club Bristol Rovers, he will also bring a winning mentality with him.

Wife of injured Cambridge Utd fan describes his life since injury

Video report by ITV Anglia's Chloe Keedy

Police have confirmed that thirteen men from Essex will appear in court in connection with an assault that left a football fan from Mildenhall with life changing injuries.

Cambridge United supporter Simon Dobbin travelled to Southend to see his team play in March 2015.

He was one of a small group of supporters who were attacked after the match as they walked to catch a train home.

The incident happened outside The Railway Pub in Southend, and left Simon with severe brain injuries.

After being treated in hospital for almost a year, Simon returned home to Mildenhall in March. His condition means he is unable to move or speak, and requires round the clock care.

As well as having the help of carers, Simon's wife Nicole and daughter Emily have the support of close family, most of whom live nearby.

Although Simon can't communicate verbally, Nicole believes he understands what has happened to him and is constantly frustrated by his condition.

Police today confirmed that thirteen men from Essex will face charges in connection with the incident last year.

One man has been charged with affray and a further 11 have been summoned to face the same charge at Southend Magistrates' Court on 2nd September.

A thirteenth man faces charges of assisting an offender and possession of a weapon.

Police are still appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Thirteen men are to face charges in connection with a serious disturbance that left a Cambridge United football supporter with life changing injuries.

44-year-old Simon Dobbin was among a small group of supporters who were assaulted in East Street, Southend on March 21 last year.

Mr Dobbin, from Mildenhall in Suffolk, is still undergoing rehabilitation after suffering a serious head injury and requiring round-the-clock care.

Eleven men have been summonsed to court to face charges of affray.

20-year-old Ryan Carter, from York Road, Southend has been charged with affray.

40-year-old Ian Young, 40 from Brightwell Avenue, Westcliff, has been summonsed to face charges of assisting an offender and possession of a weapon for the discharge of a noxious liquid or gas or an electrical incapacitation device.

All 13 are due to appear at Southend Magistrates’ Court on September 2.

"This has been a thorough and complex investigation and I would like to thank Mr Dobbin’s family for their continued support.

"Thirteen people now face charges but we are continuing our enquiries and ask anyone who believes they have information relating to the incident to contact us as soon as possible.”

Cambridge United have signed Portsmouth striker Adam McGurk on a two-year deal.

The 27-year-old only moved to Pompey last summer from Burton Albion but was placed on the transfer list.

Reflecting on last season, we felt that we required more fire power if we are to continue improving and I’m absolutely delighted we have been able to bring in Joe Pigott and now Adam McGurk.

He is a dynamic player in the way that he works his way towards the goal and from looking at his goal scoring attributes, he’s obviously had a lot of success from the middle of the park.

Adam has a flexibility to play in numerous positions, but we have brought him in as a centre forward.

Cambridge United have signed young Brighton and Hove Albion centre back Tom Dallison on loan until January.

The 20-year-old has been out on loan at Braintree Town and Crawley Town in recent seasons and started his youth career at West Ham United.

Tom brings to us a genuine left-footed option at centre back, something that we were looking to add to our squad.

With several clubs vying for his signature, we're pleased that both he and Brighton think that Cambridge United is the perfect place for him to develop during the next six months.

Cambridge United have completed the signing of striker Joe Pigott following his release by League One side Charlton Athletic.

The 22-year-old failed to make the grade at The Valley, but has impressed during various loan spells - including at Southend United and Luton Town.

Pigott has agreed a one-year deal at The Abbey Stadium.

Joe brings to us an added goal threat going into the new Sky Bet League Two season.

After a number of loans spent with both League One and League Two clubs, he has a real understanding of what this level is all about.

Once again he fits the profile of this Football Club, he has loads of potential and we’re very much looking forward to working him.
