New Brompton v Southend Utd 1908-09
While clearing my loft out several years ago I came across a box of Gillingham FC scrapbooks which I kept during the mid to late sixties. After making my mind up to throw them out I thought before doing so I would scan them all in first. Having done that I then decided I would need some way of viewing them which is when I came up with the idea of creating this website.
Since then I have borrowed scrapbooks from other fans and I have also managed to find old newspapers from the on-line Newspaper Archive website. After that I uploaded old video highlights from any games I had going back as far as 1957. Team Line-ups, goalscorers and attendances were then added from the very first game in 1893 right up to the present day so if there is any video footage for a game or a newspaper match report then there will be a link to it.
Team Photos and Programme covers for each season have also been added as well as a selection of programmes, handbooks and supporter magazines from over the years. I am continually adding newspaper match reports which I obtain from various sources and any new archive video footage that I come across. (Videos from recent seasons are links to the Official Club YouTube channel).
Having done all that I still couldn't bring myself to throw my old scrapbooks away after all and they are now back where I found them - in the loft.
If you have any ideas or suggestions or if you would like to contribute anything to the site (I am missing team photos for seasons 2007-08, 2011-12 and 2012-13) please feel free to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for visiting.
