Gillingham Ladies Back At Priestfield Stadium

Gillingham return to the Priestfield Stadium on Sunday 20th August, when they take on West Ham United in their opening FAWPL fixture of the new season.

Manager Jack Wheeler guided his side to the South East Division 1 title last season and will be hoping a return to Priestfield for the first time since December 2014 will spur his squad on even further.

He told “Having the chance to play at MEMS Priestfield Stadium is an exciting prospect for us. The Chairman has been very supportive of the Ladies side and we hope plenty of fans will come along and get behind the girls.

“They have trained extremely hard, there is a good spirit in the dressing room and we are ready for the season ahead.”

Admission for the game is free, however a £2 donation is reuested to go toward the club’s official charity partner, Take Heart Mercy Mission.
