As Assistant manager to James Marrs in 2013, Jack was on the sidelines when Gills saw their most successful league campaign by finishing second in the Southern Premier League and a historic FA Cup run taking them to Women’s Super League side Arsenal LFC.  A time away from Gills to coach at his Pro Kickers Academy, Jack returned to coaching staff and was put in full charge as Gills First Team Manager early into the 2015/16 campaign. Wheeler’s second season in full time charge proved successful as the team raced to win the FA Women’s Premier League South East Division One and a return to the Southern Premiership.

  1. Hi,
    I would just like to pass on my comments, on regarding Mr Martin Andrews comments on radio kent today. I couldn’t agree more with Martin, I am dad with 2 girls of 11 and 9 who love their football.
    We recently had a school tournament for girls, but unfortunately the school didn’t have enough girls to represent them, so we asked if they could play in the boys tournament, the organisers refused and said girls have their own tournament, when techincally they can still play mix at that age!
    It really angers me that we try and encourage the girls to play, it broke my heart when my daughter said “why can’t I play dad?” What I am suppose to say. With girls football I really think we are so far behind the times and so sexist.
    I am qualifed level 2 coach and now we have found a local club which will take girls on, we have 18 girls turn up every Saturday from age of 6 up to 12, I don’t like to turn any girls away and the girls really love playing, but we do struggle on finding other clubs to play.
    Anyway ranted on enough, please pass this on to Martin, keep up the good work and your not alone by any means.

    • Hi Stevo,

      Thank you for getting in touch with us. It is very moving to hear the story of your two little girls and we’d love to arrange a time for them to come down to training and one of our matches.

      We’ll be in touch. And please keep following the club!
