Classic encounters: Gillingham

1 October 2020

Re-live Town classic encounters with Gillingham.

Town are back at home this weekend as they welcome Gillingham to the Montgomery Waters Meadow for a clash in Sky Bet League One. Take a look back at previous meetings between the two sides.

League Two, Prostar Stadium, Saturday, 8 September 2010: Shrewsbury Town 7-0 Gillingham Town

Shrewsbury equalled their record league win from 1955 as six different players found the net against Gillingham.

Paul Simpson's Shrewsbury secured their first win in three games in emphatic style as they hammered woeful Gillingham 7-0. They snatched the lead when Michael Jackson powered home a header from a Ben Davies corner and it was two shortly afterwards when a Dave Hibbert shot took a deflection to leave Simon Royce stranded.

The rampant Shrews side added a third through a Davies free-kick which went straight through the wall and it was four before the break when Graham Coughlan headed in from close range. Shane Cansdell-Sherriff side-footed in a fifth, Grant Holt made it six from the spot after Simon King had brought him down, and Davies completed the scoring with a stunning free-kick.

Shrewsbury: Daniels, Herd, Jackson (Langmead 69), Coughlan, Tierney, Davies, Cansdell-Sherriff, McIntyre (Ashton 85), Thornton, Holt, Hibbert (Hindmarch 77)

Subs not used: Garner, Humphrey

Gillingham: Royce, Fuller, King, Richards, Nutter, Oli (Berry 50), Miller (Bentley 69), Weston, Daniels, Jackson, McCammon (Crofts 58)

League One, Greenhous Meadow, Saturday, 12 October 2013: Shrewsbury Town 2-0 Gillingham Town

A bottom half clash between Shrewsbury and Gillingham saw the hosts come out on top with a solid 2-0 victory. The opening goal came through Town left back, Joe Jacobson who managed to find the net after a ball was lashed into the back post.

After relentless pressure from Gillingham, they almost found the equaliser through forward, Danny Kedwell, however his effort was touched onto the post from Town keeper, Chris Weale.

Town were desperately attempting to put the game to bed and another goal would do just that, a relieved home crowd watched substitute Liam McAlinden tuck away a ball threaded through to him by midfielder Ryan Woods- securing all three points for Graham Turner’s side.

Shrewsbury: Weale, Winfield, Mkandawire, Parry (Reach 87), Jacobson, McAllister (Goldson 71), Taylor, Wildig, Woods, Bradshaw, Lopez (McAlinden 74)

Subs not used- Marsden, McQuade, Jones, Anyon

Gillingham: Nelson, Davies, Barrett, Gregory (German 70), Martin, Allen, Hollands, Lee, Whelpdale (Weston 46), Kedwell (Akinfenwa), McDonald

Subs not used- Linganzi, Dack, Legge, Howard

Att: 5,129
