Dickson scores against Spanners

Chris Dickson scored his fourth goal in two games when he scored the only goal in 1-1 draw between the Gills and the Spanners. According to the BBC: 'Dickson put Gillingham ahead when he collected Delroy Facey's pass on the edge of the box, side-stepped Paul Robinson, and fired home.' Sounds like a good goal.

The former Dulwich Hamlet ace looks as if he is making good use of his loan spell at Gillingham, although there is a gap between League 1 and the Championship.

Elsewhere, Leamington consolidated their lead at the top of the British Gas Business Midlands Division with a 1-0 win over Rothwell Town at the New Windmill Ground. Attendance was down to 354 with many people preferring to watch England's win against Estonia.

I was in Oxford where I saw students in subfusc process to the Radcliffe Camera in the morning to matriculate, heard an address by Chris Patten, the Chancellor and saw Shirley Williams who is in great form. There was also some discussion of the prospects for Southampton v. Charlton, the Saints having their following among college fellows.

Just seen the goal on SSN - Dickson did well.

He outmuscled one defender to reach the ball, suck out a leg to hook the ball round another defender, collected it round the other side before leathering it past the 'keeper.

Four goals in two games isn't a bad return. Let's hope his education in professional football continues apace at Priestfield - he could be a useful addition to the first team squad in the second half of the season.
