Enjoy our free download of the programme from the Gills' 3-2 victory over Wigan

To commemorate Gillingham’s historic play-off final victory against Wigan Athletic 16 years ago, the club have produced a free, downloadable PDF of the day’s matchday programme.

On sale at the historic stadium for £4, the 40-page document included an interview with then manager Peter Taylor, an overview of the club’s season (ending with the assessment that “Gillingham have won plenty of new admirers in recent seasons”) and a few too many references of the previous year’s Wembley defeat against Manchester City.

The programme, while showing some signs of wear and tear from the day, remains in good condition and has been reproduced in full for this free download.

Were you one of the 42,000 Gills fans at Wembley on that day? You can be part of the action once again next season, as the club looks to return to the Championship for the first time since 2005.

Gillingham Football Club season tickets go on general sale on Wedneday, June 1. For more information, click here – don’t miss out on securing your seat at the home of league football in Kent.
