SOUTHEND PROGRAMME PREVIEW

18 September 2012

Our guide to what's coming up in tonight's matchday magazine

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of New Brompton FC changing their name to Gillingham Football Club we’ve given this season’s programme a historical theme. 

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

For the visit of Southend United, we’re drawing inspiration from the 80’s and tonight’s is based on the 1988/89 edition. Inside you can turn to the centre pages for an eight page exclusive souvenir mini programme from that season. 

The centenary celebrations continue inside as Chris Lynham recalls the night the Gills turned Roker Park blue and Richard Day looks back on the Gills high scoring 1987/88 campaign in his season long series.

Andrew Ford’s feature on the Gills vs the Premiership focusses on Southampton, while Nigel Clark explores the history of the Shrimpers home, Roots Hall 
 
Back to the present and we bring you the exclusive thoughts of Chairman Paul Scally and Gills Manager Martin Allen on our record breaking start to the season, plus all the action from our recent wins over Barnet & Bristol Rovers

Phill Catterick interviews fleet footed front man Myles Weston while Gills custodian Stuart Nelson answers our quick fire questions in On The Spot.
 
All this and much, much more, all for just £3.00. The programme is on sale now, so pick up your copy at the GFC Megastore today, or from sellers all around the ground.
