Weekly update of what has been happening at the club…
Disappointment for Gills Ladies
Gillingham Ladies were on the road again this week to face Norwich City Ladies in the FA Womens Premier League and were looking to extend their unbeaten run to 10 games.
With a 3-1 advantage Gills Ladies looked on course to enjoy another good trip on the road, however, the game was stopped twice due to the bad weather conditions then on 50 minutes it was confirmed the match had been abandoned due to severe fog.
Manager Jack Wheeler revealed everyone was disappointed that the game had to be abandoned but the girls are looking forward to returning to Chatham Town FC on Sunday to play Herne Bay Ladies in the SSE Womens FA Cup.
The match away to Norwich City LFC will be re-arranged, date to be confirmed.

Girls Centre of Excellence
It’s Cups all round this weekend as our U17s face Middlesex FA at home in the 1st Round of The FA Girl’s U17s Centres of Excellence Youth Cup, while the rest of the squads have a well-deserved weekend off. Good luck girls from all at the club.
This week saw Mark Patterson deliver our second Coaches Open Evening at the Centre. The evening is open to coaches and volunteers of grass roots club to come and observe our coaches at players at work. Patterson worked with our U13s on ‘Counter Attacking to Finish and Managing Overloads’. It was a great session with one of the coaches who attended stating “It’s shown me where my girls need to improve and more importantly how I can achieve that.” Thank you to all those attending and we will be hosting another Open Evening in the New Year.
The Girls Academy are back in the stadium and back to the books as they continue with their studies in the classroom and out on the pitch in training. Next week the girls will be travelling down to Brighton to play their Academy, in what will be a great training exercise for them, good luck girls.
Football League Girls Cup
The road to Wembley starts next week as we host the local stage of the Football League Girls Cup (U13). School teams from across the county will be joining us as they look to win the right to represent Gillingham FC in the National Stages of the tournament and could progress all the way to the final for the prize of a lifetime – playing football at Wembley stadium. The winner of our local stage will then go on to compete against other winning schools in the Area Finals being hosted by Southend FC in January. Good luck to all the teams who have entered and we look forward to announcing our winner.
