Hi All,

One of the local away games. I noticed the details for this game on the web today and am keen to go. I was surprised at only offering an initial 500 tickets for away fans. Do they still use the temporary stand, and if so how many does that house, because surely there wouldn't be segregation in the temporary stand?

Anyhow, are you looking to go to this one? With many fans now going to away games and Geoffrey Boycotting the home games I would have thought this was ideal for many, just a shame about the Tuesday night in my opinion.

I want to go and kind of presumed we would take more than 500, what are your thoughts? Where do they allocate extra tickets should we take up 500.

Thanks.

They will offer the upper level of the stand and then extend to the lower if necessary (or vice versa) I expect. I hope to go, always worth a laugh at their "adapted" musical offerings.

I like this trip, we are due a win there BIG TIME.

Luckily I class as a young person, but those of you that are ''adults''. £23.00 on the night is outrageous!

Gillingham is a right dump. I had a wander through the town centre last year ahead of the league game - so much Lonsdale around it was untrue and I had to have two showers that night because I felt so dirty. £23 is an absolute ****ing disgrace for League Two football as well in that awful stand.

I'll probably drive to it though as it's pretty local.

i refuse to pay £23 to sit in a temporary stand with no roof. when home fans probably get in cheaper and sit in a proper stand with a roof. IMO the price should be about £10.
