It was a game that Anchs had targeted for victory, both to avenge the loss earlier in the season at Darland Avenue and also to keep them clear of the relegation zone.

Gillingham Anchorians v Park House London & SE Division – London 3 South East, 14:30 1st Feb 2020

Anchs faced fellow strugglers Park House at Darland Avenue in a must win match which would keep the winner above the relegation zone. Choosing to play down the slope in the first half to put the visitors under early pressure didn’t go the way Anchs had hoped when Park House opened the scoring with a penalty from in front of the posts.

Anchs returned to Darland Avenue for their first home game of the new year against 2nd placed Folkestone.

Gillingham Anchorians v Old Dunstonians London & SE Division -London 3 South East, 14:30 16th Nov 2019

On a cold and dark, but dry November day, Anchs welcomed Old Dunstonians (“ODs”) to Darland Avenue hoping to return to winning ways in London SE 3. Anchs certainly started well, moving the ball to the wings but were playing the game in their own half. Against the run of play, the visitors opened the scoring with some neat inter-passing down the left wing, finished with a try in the corner. On a day where kicking would prove decisive the conversion was missed.
