Stimson salutes Gillingham go-ahead

20 December 2009 10:39
The Kent side went onto record their seventh home league win off the season as sensational first-half strikes from Dennis Oli, Febian Brandy and John Nutter in his 100th appearance for the Gills helped inflict Stockport's ninth straight league defeat with a 3-1 success.

The victory has given Gillingham a five-point buffer over the drop zone and Stimson was relieved the game survived the big freeze.

He said: "I turned up just before 10.00am and we had about 25 volunteers, most of them under 18, and full credit to them because they've worked their socks off.

"They've shovelled the snow, dug in and really made this game happen. Without them, this game wouldn't have gone ahead.

"It was a fantastic result and first-half performance where we scored three goals which probably are goal-of-the-season contenders."
