Chelmsford City boss Rod Stringer has spoken about the impact of Charlton Athletic loanee Mikhail Kennedy.

The young striker moved to Chelmsford City on loan from Charlton Athletic; however, the 22-year-old is soon to return to The Valley following his spell in Essex.

Kennedy featured eight times for the Clarets, appearing as an impact substitute on most occasions but was handed starts in the Essex Senior Cup Quarter-Final win over Coggeshall Town and the league defeat at Slough Town.

During his time in Essex, the talented front man scored just once – in the final minutes of the 3-1 win at Dulwich Hamlet, however City boss Rod Stringer is pleased with the loanee’s impact.

“It was very good for him to get a goal,” he said. “He’s been on loan for us from Charlton and he’s a great lad.

“I could see his face, he was desperate to come but I said to him it’s difficult at 1-0 or 2-0 to make changes. As much as I wanted to see him come on, so I can see the benefit of him getting the minutes, it was difficult.”
