Youth Coach Steve Lovell delivers his verdict following the 1-1 draw with Cambridge in the leagueCambridge v Gillingham (League) – 16.08.14
It was another good game against Cambridge who we beat in the cup just a few days before. The match started well and we could have gone in front with a couple of chances from set plays, but their keeper was in great form and kept them in it.
We did take the lead on 25 minutes with a good move including Callum Emptage, Harry Stanard and Greg Cundle which led to a good header from Ross Ibbertson.
The second half was all one way but we couldn’t kill the game off and Cambridge equalized with a very good goal right at the end.
Gills: Chris Haigh, Callum Emptage, Riccardo Thompson, Mitchell Dickinson, Sam Stewart, Joe Nougbele, Dan Adams, Ross Ibbertson, Bradley Stephenson, Harry Stanard, Greg Cundle.
Subs: Max Kilman, Henry Newcombe, Jake O’Brien.
