With the dust hardly settled from their debut campaign in the FA Women's Premier League, Gillingham have swung into gear to arrange pre-season friendlies.
It is a very exciting pre-season campaign that the club has lined up, and one that will really get the players focused as there are no less than three National Division teams in the programme, including the current Southern Division Champions to give the Gills the tests they require.
There are still a couple of dates they are looking to fill, but the line up currently is as follows:-
Wednesday 20th July v Crystal Palace (H)
Palace are currently in the South East Combination after having to rebuild last season following relegation from the Premier League. They stayed in the Combination with a dramatic last day victory.
Sunday 24th July v MK Dons (A)
MK Dons narrowly missed out on the Combination play-off spot last season to Norwich City and they will probably be one of the favourites to win the League next season.
Sunday 31st July v Barnet (H)
A tough game for the Gills as Barnet are the current Premier League Cup holders and finished in mid-table in the National Division this season. The teams last met two seasons ago in the FA Women's Cup where Barnet won 4-0 on the day, however the Gills had enough chances in the game to cause an upset.
Thursday 4th August v Maidstone Town (A)
Maidstone narrowly missed out on promotion to the Combination a couple of season ago. They finished mid-table in the London & South East League Premier Division and the two Clubs have formed a good relationship over the past couple of seasons.
Sunday 7th August v Watford (H)
National Division side Watford visit Kent for the second year running, as both teams played out an exciting 2-2 draw last summer. Watford themselves also had a relegation battle on their hands which they successfully survived last season.
Sunday 14th August v Charlton Athletic (H)
The week before the season starts and an exciting tough derby game to get both teams focused for the season. Charlton will be preparing for the National Division after winning the Southern Division last season. They met three times last season with Gills winning the two games in Charlton's back yard, whilst Charlton won the return game which the Gills hosted. A club record crowd of 220 watched the recent home game.
The Reserve team fixtures are currently being worked on, with their season starting two weeks later than the first team.
