Appeal for Information | A message from Joe Comper

Director of Operations, Joe Comper, is appealing for information following an incident during the second half of Saturday's game against Notts County.

The club's Director of Operations, Joe Comper. is appealing for information following an incident during Saturday's home fixture against Notts County.

Once again, we find ourselves investigating an incident which reflects poorly on the Football Club, and will likely land us in trouble with the Football authorities.

Towards the end of today’s game, objects have been thrown onto the pitch from the Rainham End, at least one of which appears to have struck the opposition goalkeeper. Quite clearly, any right-minded person can understand that this is not acceptable, and it won’t be accepted at Priestfield.

Our investigation is underway and we are working closely with Kent Police to identify the culprit/s, in order for us to impose any necessary bans, as well as pursuing criminal prosecutions.

The fanbase here at Gillingham is truly fantastic. You are passionate, loyal and devoted to the team and those that represent your shirt. It is a shame that the actions of a very small minority risk damaging your club in the form of heavy fines and potentially points deductions.

If anyone has any information that can assist us in finding these individuals, I ask that you email me directly at jcomper@priestfield.com.
