It’s been a solid start to pre-season for the Gills so far, but even though there have been some encouraging signs in the opening few games, I don’t think anybody expected us to go this crazy in front of goal.
Admittedly Chatham Town were low-level opposition. The Gills were there to help ‘launch’ the club’s new floodlights, but the pitch was terrible and the team looked pretty rough, too.
But nonetheless scoring a dozen goals in a semi-competitive football match is no mean feat, and the Gills did just that.
Goals from Darren Oldaker, Conor Wilkinson (2), Josh Wright (2), Bradley Garmston, Tom Eaves, Noel Mbo, Liam Nash (2), Jake Hessenthaler and Elliott List gave the Gills their goal-laden victory. Indeed, there were so many strikes, our friends at GillsInTheBlood and The Last Waltz Blog weren’t able to capture them all.
