    I have been attempting to find the match day squads for every Gillingham league match using a combination of match programmes, match reports, internet research and my own records.

    This is a video of Steve Lovell's first international goal in 1985 (Norwegian commentary) (see around the 1minute mark). Shortly before is an hilarious own goal. Don't know what the attendance was but it looks a bit 'sparse'.

    Why i am against VAR

    I dont support a Premier League team, in fact i support a relatively obscure team from League 1. You know which. I don't like the Premier League or what it represents. However, i think the introduction of VAR will be the deathnell for football. In cricket video replays have been an absolute...
