Dean and Nathan’s Kicks – Gillingham v Morecambe

Our final Kick of the season took us to the Priestfield Stadium home of Gillingham and one of our ambassadors, Charlie Lee, for their final home game of the season with Morecambe. Our guests for the day were Dean and Nathan who were nominated by Demelza Hospice in Sittingbourne.

We met the boys and their family on reception at the stadium, where Nathan, who was the mascot for the day, received his new Gills kit and met our hosts for the day, Jes and Jamie.

First it was off to the dressing room to meet the players, including Charlie, for pictures and autographs. After that we all went on a tour of the rest of the stadium including the very impressive hospitality areas with piano bar and grand hall!

Then it was time for Nathan to have a quick kickabout on the pitch and more photo opportunities, before heading back down the tunnel ahead of kick off. After taking part in the fairplay handshake Nathan went back to his seat in the stand with the rest of his family and watched as Charlie Lee scored both goals in the home teams victory.

We would like to thank everybody at Gillingham Football Club especially Jes, Jamie and Val for looking after us brilliantly before and during the day.
