#FLASHBACKFRIDAY - NOTTS COUNTY

6 December 2013

We look back at some of our best games against the Magpies

It's that time of week again as we trawl through the archives to recall some of our best moments against our upcoming opponents in our #FlashbackFriday feature.

It wasn't too long ago that we last played Notts County, with the Gills recording a 2-1 win over the Magpies at MEMS Priestfield Stadium on October 22.

Chris Whelpdale and Danny Kedwell both scoring in the first half with Callum McGregor pulling one back in the 79th minute.

Highlights of that game can be seen on gfcofficial.

Going back a little further, we have picked out the following games as some of our most memorable:

Tuesday March 17 2009 - Notts County 0-1 Gillingham

With Mark Stimson's men looking to achieve at least a play-off place in League Two, this result went a long way to ensure their hopes turned in to a realistic possibility.

Simeon Jackson proved the difference, his 58th minute strike proving enough to take all three points back to Priestfield.

He went on to score the winning goal in the play-off final against Shrewsbury Town at Wembley.

Saturday December 19 1998 - Gillingham 4-0 Notts County

A decade earlier and the Gills ran riot with an emphatic win over County in the Winter of 1998.

Carl Asaba bagged a hat-trick and Bob Taylor got the other in a convincing home victory.

Asaba was on the score sheet again for the return fixture in May of 1999, his strike sealing a 1-0 win.

Saturday November 26 1988 - Notts County 1-2 Gillingham

Just over a quarter of a century ago it was Dave Smith and Trevor Quow making the headlines as their goals clinched another win on the road for the Gills.

Keith Burkinshaw had been in charge for less than a month, but was able to celebrate all three points after a hard fought win.

Saturday February 1 1986 - Gillingham 4-0 Notts County

Another 4-0 win, this time under the management of Keith Peacock, was sealed thanks to goals from Martin Robinson (2), Keith Oakes and Russell Musker.

It was a successul season for the Gills as they went on to finish fifth in the old third division, 15 points shy of eventual Champions Reading.
