Gillingham Ladies returned to pre-season training this week as preparations go underway for the 2014/15 season in the FA Women’s Southern Premier League.
Gills players reported for duty at Beechings Cross training ground on Monday to undergo scrutinous fitness testing under the watchful eye of Gillingham FC Head of Sports Science James Russell and Under 21 Coach Mark Patterson.
The players were rewarded for their efforts with a surprise training session led by Andy Hessenthaler on Wednesday afternoon.
The Gills Assistant Manager was joined by first team player and son Jake, to run a session alongside Academy Director Darren Hare.
Gills continue their preparations ahead of their weekend trip to play their first pre-season fixture.
