Gillingham will be hoping they can build on a recent upturn in results in League One, as they look to make a late push for the play-offs. 

The Gills are currently sat 11th in the third-tier standings, but are unbeaten in their last three matches, which has seen them move to within five points of sixth-placed Portsmouth in recent weeks.

The club have had their fair share of players over the years that have come and gone at Priestfield Stadium, with some making more of an impact than others.

He is now playing for National League side Yeovil Town.

Danny Kedwell – Havant & Waterlooville

Kedwell is well-known for scoring goals consistently in the lower leagues of the EFL, and he did that in his time with Gillingham.

The forward scored 45 goals in 136 appearances for the Gills in a four year spell with the club, before leaving to join Ebbsfleet United.

He enjoyed a similar spell in front of goal for them, and is now in his second spell with National League South side Havant & Waterlooville.

Myles Weston – Dagenham & Redbridge

Emmanuel-Thomas spent the 2016/17 season on loan with Gillingham, and made 35 appearances for the club, whilst also chipping in with 11 goals for them.

The winger was on loan from QPR at the time of that loan spell, but went on to sign for Thai side PTT Rayong F.C. after leaving the London-based club.

He is now playing for Scottish side Livingston though.

Paulo Gazzaniga – Elche 

Gazzaniga started his professional career with Gillingham back in 2012, and made 22 appearances for the club.
