Gillingham FC


Get on your bike and join TEAM GFC for the ultimate Charity ride this summer

This is the team I grew up supporting. Between 1964 and 1974 I attended hundreds of games – home and away. My heroes were John Simpson (a legendary keeper), three aggressive defenders (David Peach, Davis Quirke and Bill Williams) and Brian Yeo who scored goals for fun. In the last 40 years I have experienced the (few) highs and (many) lows from all over the world …….. but they are still “my club”. In many ways it is fortunate that  they have never played Manchester United so my loyalty for the two has never been put to the test!Gillingham Football Club is calling all supporters to get on their bikes and join us for the biggest charity fund-raising event in the club’s history, Ride with the Gills. So pump up your tyres and get on your bike for a great day out.





Ride with the Gills is a 15 mile charity ride around Medway that will take place on Saturday 17 May with all proceeds going to GFC’s Official Club Charity, Take Heart Mercy Mission.

Chairman Paul Scally, Manager Peter Taylor, the Gills players and staff, plus the Medics from the Evelina Children’s Hospital will all be taking part and you can choose which of our eight GFC teams you want to join:

Team Chairman Scally
Team Manager Taylor
Team Legend Hessy
Team Skipper Barrett
Team Beast Bayo
Team Keeper Nelson
Team Striker Cody
Team Striker Kedwell

Every rider will be given a special team bib and everyone taking part can join us for the post ride celebrations in the Blues Rock Café.
