of Gillingham, Kent. The only Kent-based club in the Football League, they play their home matches at the KRBS Priestfield Stadium. In the 2007–08 season, the club was relegated from Football League One. The club was founded in 1893 and joined the Football League in 1920. They were voted out of the league in favour of Ipswich Town at the end of the 1937–38 season, but returned to it 12 years later after it was expanded from 88 to 92 clubs. Twice in the late 1980s they came close to winning promotion to the second tier of English football, but a decline then set in and in 1993 they narrowly avoided relegation to the Football Conference. Between 2000 and 2005, Gillingham were in the second tier of the English league for the only time in their history, achieving a club record highest league finish of eleventh place in 2002–03.

History
Early years
The local success of a junior football side, Chatham Excelsior F.C., encouraged a group of businessmen to meet with a view to creating a football club which could compete in larger competitions. New Brompton F.C. was formed at the meeting, held on 18 May 1893.[4] The founders also purchased the plot of land which would later become Priestfield Stadium.[5] The new club played its first match on 2 September 1893, losing 1–5 to Woolwich Arsenal’s reserve side in front of a crowd of 2,000.[6] New Brompton were among the founder members of the Southern League upon its creation in 1894, and were placed in Division Two. They were named Champions in the first season (1894–95) going on to defeat Swindon Town in a test match to win promotion.[7] In the seasons that followed, the club struggled in Division One, finishing bottom in the 1907–08 season,[3] avoiding relegation only due to expansion of the league. Whilst the club’s league performance was disappointing, the side did manage a famous cup victory over Football League First Division

the league. This bid for re-election failed, with Gillingham returning to the Southern League and Ipswich Town being promoted in their place.[11] Gillingham quickly established themselves as one of the stronger sides in the league, winning a local double of the Kent League and Kent Senior Cup in the 1945–46 season.[11] In the 1946–47 season the team won both the Southern League Cup and the Southern League championship, during which they recorded a club record 12–1 victory over Gloucester City.[12] The Gills also won the league title in 1948–49.[13]

Return to the Football League
In 1950 plans were announced to expand the Football League Division Three (South) from 22 to 24 teams and, taking into account their local success in the interim, Gillingham were re-elected to the Football League with a landslide vote.[13] The team spent eight seasons in Division Three (South) before the restructuring of the league system for the 1958–59 season saw them placed in the newly-created Fourth Division. They remained in this division until 1964, when manager Freddie Cox led them to promotion, winning the first and so far only championship in the club’s history. The team finished the season level on 60 points with Carlisle United, but with a better goal average (1.967 against 1.948), which was the tightest league title finish in Football League history.[14] After relegation back to the Fourth Division in 1970–71, the Gills were soon promoted back to the Third Division in the 1973–74 season.[15] After this the club seemed to find its level in Division Three, regularly mounting a challenge for promotion which ultimately fell short each time, never more so than in 1986–87 when they reached the play-offs only to lose in the final to Swindon Town.[16] During this period the club produced future stars Steve Bruce and Tony Cascarino, who was famously bought from non-league Crockenhill in exchange for a set of tracksuits.[17] In 1987 the Gills hit the headlines when, on consecutive Saturdays, they beat Southend United 8–1 and Chesterfield 10–0, the latter a club record for a Football League match. Just a few months later, however, manager Keith Peacock was controversially sacked,[18] and within 18 months the club had fallen into Division Four.[16] The ensuing

The team finished bottom of Division One in the 1919–20 season but for a third time avoided relegation, due to the subsequent elevation of all Southern League Division One clubs to form the new Football League Division Three.[10]

First spell in the Football League
In the first season of the newly-created Football League Division Three, the 1920–21 season, Gillingham again finished bottom, and in the years to follow there was little improvement on this, the club continually finishing in the lower reaches of the bottom division. In 1938 the team finished bottom of the Third Division (South) and were required to apply for re-election for the fifth time since joining

1999–00 season Gillingham qualified for the play-offs again, where they faced Wigan Athletic in the final at Wembley Stadium. The game finished 1–1 after 90 minutes, but, thanks to goals in extra time from substitutes Steve Butler and Andy Thomson, the Gills won 3–2 and were promoted to Division One for the first time.[20] Taylor then left to manage Leicester City, and Andy Hessenthaler was appointed as player-manager.[23] He led the club to their best ever league finish of eleventh in the 2002–03 season,[3] but the following season saw the club narrowly avoid relegation on goal difference. Hessenthaler resigned as manager in November 2004,[23] and new boss Stan Ternent[24] was unable to prevent the Gills’ relegation to League One. At the end of the 2007–08 season the club was relegated again, this time to League Two.[25] The following season the Gills finished fifth and beat Rochdale to reach the final of the play-offs.[26] Since 2002, the club has faced severe financial difficulties as a result of various events including the collapse of ITV Digital, relegation from the Championship, and the cost of refurbishing the stadium.[27] By 2008, the club’s level of debt had reached approximately £13m, although this was reduced dramatically as a result of the sale of Priestfield Stadium to a new holding company.[27] In 2006 chairman Paul Scally cut his own salary by 60% in order to reduce overheads,[28] and EDF Energy cut off power to the stadium as a result of unpaid bills of approximately £100,000.[29]

Recent highs and lows
Beset with financial problems, the club went into administration in January 1995, and by the end of the 1994–95 season faced the threat of being expelled from the Football League and closed down.[16] In June 1995, however, a London-based businessman, Paul Scally, stepped in and bought the club.[19] He brought in new manager Tony Pulis, who led Gillingham to promotion in his first season, finishing second in the old Division Three (now Football League Two).[3] In 1999 the Gills made the play-offs but lost in the Division Two play-off final to Manchester City. The Gills were 2–0 up with less than two minutes left only to see City score twice, the equaliser in injury time, and go on to win 3–1 in a penalty shoot-out.[20]

The Gills have played at Priestfield Stadium throughout their existence.[30] The ground was originally purchased by the founders of the club through an issue of 1,500 £1 shares.[5] Sources differ on whether the ground was named after the road on which the land stood, Priestfield Road,[5] or whether the road was named after the ground;[31] if the latter is the case then the origin of the ground’s name is unknown. The ground was extensively developed prior to the 1930s, but there was then little change until the late 1990s and the arrival of Paul Scally as chairman. Three of the four stands were demolished and rebuilt between 1995 and 2000. The fourth stand, known as the Town End, was demolished to make way for a new stand, to be named the Brian Moore Stand after television sports commentator Brian Moore, who was a well-known Gills fan, but the club’s financial situation has not allowed the new stand to be built and a temporary stand has been in place since 2004.[32] On 1 June 2007 the stadium was officially renamed KRBS Priestfield Stadium as part of a new sponsorship deal with the Kent Reliance Building Society.[33] At its peak in the 1940s the official capacity of the stadium was listed as "between 25,000 and 30,000"[4] but subsequent redevelopments, the removal of terraces and building of new facilities have seen this reduced to a current capacity of 11,582.[1] In the 2007–08 season, the average attendance at home matches was 6,077, just 52% of capacity.[34] The ground has also hosted home fixtures of the England women’s national football team.[35]

Colours and crest
Although Gillingham have long been associated with the colours blue and white, the original New Brompton side wore a strip consisting of black and white striped shirts with black shorts.[5] With the renaming of the club in 1913, the black and white strip was dropped in favour of red shirts with blue sleeves, emblazoned with the borough’s coat of arms.[36] The striped shirts returned after World War One, before finally being replaced with the now-familiar combination of plain blue shirts and white shorts in 1931.[37] More recent years have seen several variations on the blue and white colour scheme. In the late 1990s the team wore blue and

black striped shirts, recalling the original New Brompton stripes.[38] In the summer of 2003 it was controversially announced that the club’s first choice shirts for the following season would be predominantly white, rather than blue. The announcement received such a hostile response from supporters that the white strip was replaced by one featuring blue and black hoops, which had originally been earmarked as the team’s third choice kit.[39] The club’s current crest is a shield divided vertically into halves of black and white stripes and solid blue, reflecting the club’s original and modern kits. On the blue half is the county emblem of Kent, a white horse rampant, albeit slightly altered from its normal form as its mane is stylised into the letters of the word "Gills". The club’s motto, which appears on a scroll below the crest, is "Domus clamantium", the Latin for "the home

Subsequent sponsors have included Chatham Maritime, Medway Toyota, Invicta FM, Kool, Medway News, and SeaFrance.[42][43] Since the start of the 2007–08 season the team’s shirts have been sponsored by the Kent Reliance Building Society as part of the deal which also involves the renaming of the club’s stadium.[33]

Managers
For more details on this topic, see List of Gillingham F.C. managers. For the first three years of the club’s existence, team matters were handled by a committee. In 1896 William Ironside Groombridge, the club’s secretary, took sole charge of team affairs to become Gillingham’s first recognised manager.[52] Former England international Stephen Smith was appointed as full-time manager in 1906,[53] but left in 1908, with Groombridge once again taking

on team responsibilities. Groombridge was associated with the club, as manager and secretary, for over 25 years. When the club was admitted to the Football League in 1920, Robert Brown was appointed as manager, but he resigned a month later before the season had even begun.[54] His replacement, Scotsman John McMillan, thus became the first manager to take charge of the team in a Football League match.[54] In 1939, a year after the club was voted back out of the Football League, Archie Clark took over as manager, and was still in charge when the club was elected back to the Football League in 1950. Clark remained in the job until 1957.[55] Freddie Cox took over in 1962 and led the club to the Football League Fourth Division championship in the 1963–64 season, making him the only manager to win a Football League divisional title with the club.[56] Basil Hayward was sacked in 1971 after the club was relegated back to the Fourth Division in the 1970–71 season,[56] but his successor Andy Nelson led the club to promotion back to Division Three three years later before controversially resigning.[57] Tony Pulis took over in 1995, with Gillingham once again in the bottom division, and managed the club to promotion in his first season in charge. Three years later he led the team to the Second Division play-off final, but was sacked immediately after this after being accused of gross misconduct.[58] Peter Taylor replaced him and took the club to a second consecutive play-off final, where Gillingham gained promotion to the second tier of English football for the first time.[59] Current manager Mark Stimson was appointed in November 2007.[2]

Statistics and records
For more details on this topic, see Gillingham F.C. records.

Goalkeeper Ron Hillyard holds the record for Gillingham appearances, having played 657 matches in all competitions between 1974 and 1990,[64] while the record for appearances solely in the Football League is held by another goalkeeper, John Simpson, with 571 between 1957 and 1972.[65] Brian Yeo is the club’s all-time leading league goalscorer, having scored a total of 136 goals between 1963 and 1975.[66] He also jointly holds the record for the most Football League goals scored in a single season, having scored 31 goals in the 1973–74 season,[66] equalling the record set by Ernie Morgan in 1954–55.[67] The highest number of goals scored by a player in a single game at a professional level is the six registered by Fred Cheesmur against Merthyr Town in April 1930.[68] The club’s record home attendance is 23,002, for an FA Cup match against QPR on 10 January 1948,[65] a record which will almost certainly never be broken unless the club relocates to a larger ground, given that Priestfield Stadium’s current capacity is approximately half that figure. The team’s biggest ever professional win was a 10-0 defeat of Chesterfield in September 1987,[65] although they had previously registered a 12-1 win against Gloucester City in the Southern League in November 1946.[16] The Gills hold the record for the fewest goals conceded by a team in the course of a 46 game season,[69] having conceded just 20 in the 1995–96 season,[3] during which goalkeeper Jim Stannard kept 29 clean sheets.[65]

closest the Gills have to local rivals.[71] Swindon Town are seen by many fans as the club’s biggest rivals, stemming from badtempered matches between the two teams in the past.[72] While Swindon fans generally do not consider Gillingham their biggest rivals, there was violence when they met at Priestfield in the 2005–06 season, their first meeting since a promotion play-off match in 1987.[73] Following their promotion in 1989, Maidstone United became Kent’s second League side. A rivalry with Gillingham developed over the following seasons, until Maidstone’s financial troubles forced them to resign from the League in 1992.[74]
