It has been a season to remember for so many reasons for Gillingham fans.

But who do you think deserves to be recognised as making the biggest contribution in helping the Gills to the top of League Two?

Having a team of winners to pick from does not make it any easier, so we have narrowed it down to five whom we feel have stood out during this campaign.

Now it is up to you to pick your favourite, and you can do so by voting on the right.

Here is our top five:


Adam Barrett

Appearances: 45

Goals: 1

Adam Barrett has simply been a colossus at the back alongside Leon Legge in Gillingham’s resolute defence. An honest, focused and experienced campaigner, the 33-year-old has marshalled the defence superbly as they have ground out results again and again.


Myles Weston

Appearances: 38

Goals: 7

It only took two minutes for winger Myles Weston to show what he was capable of on his debut, with a fine goal in the 3-1 win over Bradford City on the opening day of the season. He went on to score another six and proved to be a constant menace to the opposition, either in midfield, up front or as an impact sub; he stretched games and always made himself available for a pass. There is a reason Martin Allen refers to him as the “weapon of mass destruction”.


Danny Kedwell

Appearances: 41

Goals: 15

What can you say about the Gills fan who nets the promotion-winning goal? Kedwell looks set to be the top-scorer for the second season running. A grafter and a target to aim at, he has led the line well and got the Gills off to a flying start with eight goals in his first 11 games.


Deon Burton

Appearances: 42

Goals: 12

The veteran striker has added a classy touch to the Gills’ forward line this season and lasted the pace impressively for a 36-year-old. With crucial goals and a cool head under pressure, Burton has proved a true poacher in converting half-chances, while weighing in with match-winners at home to Morecambe in the 90th minute and a double in the important 2-1 win at his former club Rotherham United.


Matt Fish

Appearances: 48

Goals: 3

The right-back has had a mightily impressive campaign after struggling to establish himself last season, having made the step up to professional football from Dover Athletic. Heavily involved in going forward, and reliable in defence, his winner against Accrington Stanley, a 30-yard left-footed effort that went in off the bar, will be remembered for a long time to come.
