Fans vote to change to 2011/12 kit after centenary year.

Gillingham will revert to their blue shirt from the 2011/12 season for their League One campaign after fans voted for a change.

For the season just finished the Gills wore a special kit to mark the centenary of the club being known as Gillingham, having previously been known as New Brompton.

While it proved a successful change for the team on the pitch, fans have decided to go back to the club’s traditional blue, which they chose from last year’s red shirt, blue and red away shirt and the 2011 strip.

Fans buying season tickets were given the chance to vote for which kit they should wear, with the blue one the clear winner with almost half the votes.
