'New favourite player': Some fans wowed by 'unreal performance' from Chelsea loanee last night

Chelsea loanee Jamie Cumming once again caught the imagination of Gillingham supporters on social media thanks to another fine display.

Cumming kept a clean sheet against Cambridge United last night, his first since joining the club in July.

The young goalkeeper made some important stops to ensure the Gills secured only their second League One win of the season.

This is not the first time the 22-year-old has saved his current side. It probably won’t be the last either.

Utterly grateful for Chelsea lending them their ‘keeper, Gillingham fans were brimming with compliments for Cumming’s latest exhibition.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Cumming along nicely

It was only last week the Gills faithful made everyone aware how much they adored Cumming.

He put on a brilliant show at home to Charlton Athletic, pulling off a handful of terrific interventions throughout the evening.

His gloves were put into action again on Tuesday, with one denial standing out above the rest.

Cambridge clipped a cross to the back post, which was headed the same direction it arrived from.

Cumming managed to readjust his feet and tip the effort over the bar in acrobatic fashion.

Chelsea, have you been taking notice?

The no.1 jersey at Stamford Bridge is currently nestled very comfortably in Edouard Mendy’s locker.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has made a very decent case to be the main understudy.

Marcus Bettinelli arrived in the summer as a free agent to replace the departed Willy Caballero.

But Cumming should definitely be considered for the future, whether that be in the short or long term.
