McCammon Can Spoil The Silk King’s Clean Sheets.

Since  what has been unfairly dubbed, ‘The Gillingham Race Case’, Mark McCammon, has been desperate to let his head and feet do the talking.  David Holdsworth has not just signed him because he knows he has £68,000 sitting in the bank, but rather, because even at 34, the 6′ 5″ man mountain offers a thorn in the side to every defender he comes up against.  Fleetwood loanee Kieron Charnock and Nat Brown beware those two clean sheets are about to be spoiled (or soiled).

Rose Tinted sees a little ray of sunshine in every sincil cloud!


Mark was an impact live-wire last week, but his scoring rate when he starts is uncanny.  Last season in just 3 starts, plus 8 as sub, he scored 3 goals and laid on two, in just 375 BSP minutes for City and Braintree.  In his only start for Braintree he scored, ditto the Imps,  so three times a charm Saturday then mark and an assist for goal machine in the making Jamie Taylor please! But to be on the safe side ‘no wedge Reg’ has been feeding Mark raw meat all week.  The Banks other beest Boycie has unfortunately ground up all the men’s bones to bake his daily bread. He and Miller will need it against Matthew Barnes-Homer.

Saturday will be a battle against the big-spending but physical Silkmen. Allegedly Holdsworth has been preparing the side accordingly, with Popeye-own-brand  spinach – still in the tin for some –  for Impdom’s underdogs of war.  In all seriousness diet and personal conditioning is a key part of the Holdsworth doctrine.  Unlike some managers who considered salad to be a risk, in case it sprouted buck teeth, long ears and a fluffy tail.

The Imps are in good heart and will look to make the best of home advantage. Since losing 2-1 to the Bulls Macc have beaten Wrexham and Dartford 2-0. But four points from the Macc and Gateshead games would set us up for Ebbsfleet (H), Alfreton (H), Telford (A) and Hyde.

  1. Or maybe he just found the level of Football he can be affective in

  2. 52 appearances and 5 goals for the Gills tells you all you need to know
    As a centre forward he is a total let down. I think I can give that opinion without him suing..
    As a fan he “hurt my feelings” because he was so poor but unfortunately I have no recourse through the courts because I am just a fan and we don’t matter….
