Gillingham’s warm-up schedule locked in for pre-season

Final lineup of pre-season friendlies confirmed by the club on Tuesday



Gillingham FC have confirmed their final line-up of pre-season friendlies, with the addition of a July 28 away trip to Colchester United.

The club’s pre-season programme features a total of eight games, with the away games at Chatham Town and Canvey Island earmarked for a ‘Gills XI’, suggesting those games will feature fringe players and youth team prospects, rather than a side packed with first-team pros.

Gills’ pre-season kicks off at Faversham Town’s Salters Lane on Friday night, July 7, and concludes with a Gills XI visiting Essex side Canvey Island on Saturday July 29.

Then the season proper begins with the club making the long away trip to the Keepmoat Stadium to take on Doncaster Rovers on opening day, Saturday August 5.
