CHESTERFIELD PROGRAMME PREVIEW

1 September 2012

We bring you an exclusive preview of today's matchday magazine

To celebrate a century since New Brompton FC changed their name to Gillingham Football Club we’ve given this season’s programme a retro feel. 


For each home game our designer Paul Turvey is producing a unique cover, putting his spin on a classic issue from the Gills first hundred seasons. 


For the visit of Chesterfield, we’ve raided the archive and today’s cover pays tribute to the 1968/69 edition. Plus flip to the centre pages for another exclusive souvenir edition from that season.

The centenary celebrations continue inside as Chris Lynham recalls the Gills derby day defeat of Maidstone at Watling Street. Richard Day looks back on a classic campaign as Gills begin the post war period with spectacular success in 1945/46, and Andrew Ford continues his series charting Gills progress against the Premiership with the focus on Aston Villa.

 

Elsewhere, Eddie Allcorn questions the merits of football adopting the Olympic Spirit while Nigel Clark takes an affectionate look at our visitor’s former home Saltergate.

 

Back to the present and we bring you the exclusive thoughts of Chairman Paul Scally and Gills Manager Martin Allen. Plus we've got the best of the action from back to back wins at Wycombe and Dagenham.

Phill Catterick interviews Gills new goalkeeper coach and former Spireites star Carl Muggleton and Tom Flanagan answers our quick fire questions in On The Spot.

 

All this and much, much more, all for just £3.00. So pick up your matchday magazine at the GFC Megastore and from sellers all around the ground.
