Byrne In Team Of The Week (19/12/17)
Gillingham are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.
The performance by Mark Byrne in the four one victory over Bristol Rovers at the weekend at the Priestfield Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.
I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Byrne was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.
'Before the weekend, Gillingham hadn`t picked up maximum points on home turf in the league since September, but they put an emphatic end to that with a 4-1 defeat of Bristol Rovers. Irishman Byrne weighed in with two strikes - the second of which was a first-time volley into the top corner of Adam Smith`s net.'
It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Byrne for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.
