Congratulations to all three winners.


MARK AGATE YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR


This award is named in memory of lifelong Gills supporter and former GISC committee member Mark Agate.


The winner of the award this season is Dominic Jefferies. Congratulations.

A glass trophy was presented to Dominic prior to our home fixture against Newport.


AWAY PLAYER OF THE YEAR


The GISC Away Player of the Year sees Glenn Morris complete the double. Congratulations. Glenn has made some vital saves this season in goal for the Gills.

A second glass trophy was presented to Glenn prior to our home fixture against Newport.

SUPPORTER OF THE YEAR


The GISC Supporter of the Year, voted for by members, is a person who has been instrumental in arranging the take over with the Galinson family. He is been open and honest with supporters, welcoming them to the club and making Priestfield a better place to be.


Congratulations to Paul Fisher.


Paul has been a Gillingham fan all his life and was born a stones thrown from Priestfield. He arrived at the club last August as co-Chairman to help facilitate the deal that saw Brad and Shannon Galinson arrive as the club’s owners in December of 2022.


He had since been working as COO, helping run the club on a day-to-day basis. Paul decided to step down from his role in April 2023 in order to concentrate on his own business.


We thank Paul for everything he has done for Gillingham FC. Along with Brad and Shannon he has played a key part in giving us back our Gillingham FC. When reading about the award he said the following on Twitter

Paul will be presented with a glass trophy at a later date.


SUPPORTERS' AWARD


The supporters' award is awarded to the person, or persons, who have made the biggest impact on Gillingham FC over the past 12 months.


This could only be presented to one family: The Galinson Family. Our sleeping giant heroes.


Thank you doesn't seem enough for what Brad, Shannon and family have done in such a short time at Priestfield. It was an early Christmas present for all Gills fans, not quite believing what was happening.

The fan base has been reunited and the right players were signed in January to avoid what looked like certain relegation to the National League in December. Priestfield has seen improvements and the future looks very bright.


Brad, Shannon and family - thank you for choosing Gillingham. We look forward to many memories to come in the coming years. Brad tweeted the following on Twitter when he read about the award:

The Galinson family will be presented with a special crystal vase at a later date.


Thank You


The GISC would like to thank all the members who took the time to vote.


The season was certainly one of two halves, but with Neil Harris in charge let's hope we can gain promotion and have a great 2023/2024 season.
