Raining Goals

Way, way back, many years ago, not long before the Premier League began, yes kids we did have football in the 1980s, Gillingham played two home games. First up was Southend United who they beat 8-1. Next came Chesterfield, who James The Gill tells me, hadn't conceded a goal all season. Didn't matter to a rampant Gills who put 10 past them without reply.

Gillingham v Southend United 8-1 (Steve Lovell 4, Dave Smith 3, Dave Shearer)
Gillingham v Chesterfield 10-0 (Howard Pritchard 2, Dave Shearer 2, George Shipley 2, Karl Elsey 2, Colin Greenall, Dave Smith)

Odd, the things I can remember from a quarter of a century ago. Just don't ask how many beers I had last night!

Anyway, Gillingham's 18 goals in consecutive home games has been beaten by PSAP Silgi in Group One of the Divisi Utama in Indonesia. After thrashing bottom side Persires 10-0 last week yesterday they walloped promotion hopefuls Persih 9-0!

PSAP v Persires 10-0 (Osas Marvelous 5, Sayuti 2, Traore, Irfan, Suryadi)
PSAP v Persih 9-0 (Osas Marvelous 5, Suryadi, Reza Fandi, Traore, Abdul Faisal)
