Danny Kedwell has spoken of his joy at fulfilling a lifelong ambition on Saturday when he scored his first Gillingham goal.

The striker, signed from AFC Wimbledon over the summer, was born and raised in the Kent town and is a boyhood Gills fan.

And he finally got off the mark for his hometown club by scoring two penalties at Priestfield in a 3-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle. But it will be the first spot-kick which stands long in the memory.

"It was amazing," Kedwell told the club's official website. "As a Gills fan, I've been waiting for that moment all my life.

"I'm glad it was at the Rainham End because that's where I used to stand myself. It was probably the same buzz for me as what the fans got. I didn't know what to do really, I was going to jump into the Rainham End but I thought I'd better not.

"I didn't feel any pressure when I took the second one because your confidence comes after the first. Now I just need to push and try to score as many goals as I can."
