‘Mad partnership’ – Bradley Dack reminisces his time with Gillingham alongside Adebayo Akinfenwa

Published

on

It’s safe to say that Bradley Dack has gone on to impress in the Championship since moving to Blackburn Rovers back in the summer of 2017. 

The 26-year-old had previously been playing his football with Gillingham, where he caught the eye with a number of strong showings for the League One side.

Dack scored 38 goals in 185 appearances for the Gills, before departing in favour of a move to Ewood Park, where he has gone on to score 46 goals in 114 appearances for Tony Mowbray’s side in all competitions.

Whilst with Gillingham, Dack formed an impressive partnership with Adebayo Akinfenwa and Cody McDonald going forward whilst they all played for the club.

Dack recently took to Instagram to look back at his time with Gillingham, and labelled the partnership between himself, Cody McDonald and Adebayo Akinfenwa as a ‘mad partnership’.

Akinfenwa is now playing his football for promotion-chasing League One side Wycombe Wanderers, whilst McDonald is with Vanarama National League’s Ebbsfleet United.

Gillingham are currently sat 11th in the League One table, and will be hoping they can finish this year’s campaign strongly if the off-the-field crisis is to ease in the coming months.

The Verdict: 

You have to feel as though Gillingham would be in a better position than they find themselves in nowadays!

Dack, McDonald and Akinfenwa were hugely impressive in their time with the club, and formed a strong partnership going forward.

It’s no surprise to see that Dack has gone on to make a name for himself at a higher level of football, and I think he’ll be playing his football in the Premier League sooner rather than later.

The break from competitive action came at the ideal time for Dack, as he looks to step up his rehabilitation from a nasty-looking knee injury earlier this season.
