20 year-old Charlie Allen netted his first goal for the Gills as his Dad’s side regained their home form with a 4-0 pounding of Aldershot Town.

Allen, who was brought to the club shortly after Dad Martin was appointed manager, took just 11 minutes to open the scoring against the Shots, making up for his red card when Gillingham visited Northampton Town.

Club favourite Danny Kedwell doubled the lead from the spot on 27 minutes after Sonny Bradley was adjudged to have handled the ball in the area – taking his goal tally to 10 in 14 appearances and almost reaching his end of season tally from 2011/2012 after just two months.

And Myles Weston took the score to 3-0 seven minutes from the break after being fed the ball by Kedwell.

Aldershot woke up in the second half and made it difficult for the Gills to break through, but failed to create many chances for themselves and, in the 66th minute, Chris Whelpdale rounded of the 4-0 victory when his low shot hit the bar and trickled over the line.

With Port Vale still to play Oxford United on Monday night, the emphatic victory leaves the blues six points clear at the top of League Two, a position they have now occupied for six weeks.
