Billy Gilmour Included in Chelsea First Team Squad For Dublin Trip

Billy Gilmour Included in Chelsea First Team Squad For Dublin Trip

Billy Gilmour has been included in Chelsea‘s first team squad for their trip to Dublin.

The Scottish midfielder is beginning his third full season as a player at Stamford Bridge and has already shared his desire to get first team experience.

It’s more than likely that Gilmour will get that out on loan, following in the footsteps of many talented Chelsea youth players before him.

But maybe he has an outside chance of breaking into new manager Frank Lampard’s squad this season?

Chelsea have a transfer ban through this summer and next January so will be unable to add anyone to his squad for another year.

That means he’ll have to rely on what he’s got – and that includes some of the best young players in the country.

So perhaps Gilmour could be one of those to get a chance?

Chelsea have confirmed their travelling party, via chelseafc.com, for the trip to Dublin to play Bohemians and St Patrick’s Athletic – and Gilmour is in it.

What’s also significant for Gilmour is his first year at Chelsea was spent playing under Jody Morris in the club’s development team.

And it’s Morris who will assist Lampard at Stamford Bridge after a year spent together at Derby.

Lampard, who returned to the club as manager earlier this week, actually spent time helping Morris out with the Chelsea academy two years ago so should be aware of Gilmour too.
