Gillingham can today exclusively reveal that they will be playing their home games at a new ground from next season.
Chatham Town FC's the Sports Ground, Maidstone Road will be the new home of the Gills as they embark on their second season in the Premier League.
It will be the home of Gillingham for the next three years and allows them to build for the future in partnership with the very forward thinking Chatham Town FC.
The Gills have already played twice at the Sports Ground, Maidstone Road as last season they entertained FA WSL sides Arsenal and Chelsea.
Speaking about the deal, Chairman Martin Andrews said: "This is the next step in our journey to becoming a strong ambitious team. We have enjoyed our last two seasons at Lordswood Football Club, we will be indebted to them for taking a chance on us, which helped us to push for Premiership football.
"Now we are in the Premiership for a second season we have to push on further. The exciting thing about being at Chatham is that the ground is in the heart of a local community, who we hope will be interested in coming and watching us. I would like to thank Chatham Town's chairman Jeff Talbot for having the same faith as Lordswood did, he saw us play Arsenal here where over 300 came to watch."
Chatham Town are also delighted to have Kent's premier ladies team playing at their home ground for the next three seasons as they look to form a formidable partnership.
Chairman Jeff Talbot said: "This is a wonderful opportunity for women's and grass roots football to come together and provide a strong base for local football development. We at Chatham Town FC welcome Gillingham Ladies FC to the Maidstone Road Ground and look forward to jointly strengthening links to the Community."
Meanwhile, Gillingham will be holding open trials in June and are keen to recruit players for the upcoming 2011-12 season.
If you are interested in trying out for the Gills and helping them making it a successful second season in the Southern Division then come along and impress the coaching staff.
The trials will be held on Sunday 19th June at BAE Sports (The Village) Social Club in Bell Lane, Hoo, Rochester, ME3 9JD from 10am to 12.30pm.
In recent seasons, Gills players have represented England at all levels and some are now playing in the newly formed FA WSL, as well as that several members of the team have won scholarships to the United States to play football.
Gillingham are an up and coming progressive family Club and they are on the lookout for the next Deanna Cooper or Natalie Crinean to help the Club progress even further.
To register your interest for Trials, please contact Chairman Martin Andrews on firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief write up of your footballing history (ie clubs, position etc).
