Gillingham: Club Profile
Our first encounter with Gills was actually not on the pitch, but in 2007 when they pinched gaffer Mark Stimson from us! Four years later, however, our business would be strictly on the pitch as we joined them in League One.

Travel Information – Distance: 69 miles
From Stevenage, head south on the A1(M) and join the M25 towards the Dartford Crossing. More confident navigators can head across county via Ware and Harlow to use the M11 or A10, but it's all contributing towards the same purpose. Once on the M25, follow the motorway around to the Dartford Bridge and cross the Thames.
After rejoining the M25 the other side of the river, join the Canterbury-bound A2 for more than 9 miles. At the start of the M2 motorway, bear left for the A289 for nearly 4 miles. Continue along to the Four Elms Roundabout and take the 2nd exit for the Wainscott Eastern Bypass; still the A289.
After more than 3 miles, take the third exit at the roundabout for Church Street. Continue onto Ingram Road and again onto Gillingham Road. Half a mile after leaving the A289, there should be a left turn for Priestfield Road.
On street parking is the way forward upon arrival in Gillingham, but be advised of resident permit schemes that have been implemented to stop football fans hogging all the spots. A full list of streets you're advised to avoid can be found on the Gills website.
Services to: LONDON ST PANCRAS
Catch a London-bound service to London Kings Cross and make the short pedestrian switch to London St Pancras for a Southeastern service to Gillingham. It's not a over-strenuous journey upon arriving in Kent, perhaps less than 10 minutes if you're lucky. Turn left out onto Railway Street towards Victoria Street.
At Victoria Street, turn left and shortly after - 128ft, turn left onto Balmoral Road. Remain on Balmoral Road for 0.3 miles and this will then become Priestfield Road. The ground ought to be 0.1 miles further along. Job done!
