Scholars to face Gills

27/08/2019

Soccer Elite FA are delighted to announce a fixture for a selection of our Scholars against Gillingham.

We will travel to the Gills' first team training base at Beechings Cross on Friday to face the League One club's under 18 side.

A mix of first year, second year and third year Scholars will look forward to their first pro fixture of the 2019-20 season, and Maplesden Noakes coach Lee Spiller is looking forward to the tie: "As always this is a fantastic fixture for our Scholars.

"The game is not only a superb opportunity to test ourselves against a side of this calibre, but it also a brilliant chance for our Scholars to impress our local EFL club.

"Our Scholarship graduates continue to impress in both the professional and semi-professional game and we are looking forward to giving our players the platform to impress the Gills.

"We will be hard at work this week preparing and look forward to what should be a great match on Friday!"
