Saints youngster Alfie Jones has so far been impressive in the early stages of his current loan spell at Gillingham with the defender netting his first goal for the club this weekend in a 2-2 draw against Tranmere Rovers.
Of course, some Southampton fans noticed Jones’ impressive performance for the Gills, and they took to social media to praise the 21-year-old for yet another promising outing for the League One club.
Here is what some Saints supporters had to say on Twitter…
He has been their beat player this season so far. Accomplished, strong and leading. Bagged a cheeky goal at the weekend too. Long may it continue and we have a superb young talent on our hands. Keep it up Alfie.
