Former U's man passes awayBrian died on Monday, aged 77.
Brian Gibbs, a member of the U's side that beat Leeds in that memorable FA Cup run of 1970/71, has sadly passed away.
"We were deeply saddened to hear the news of Brian's passing this week," U's Former Players Association committee member John Schultz said.
"He was a popular figure at the club during his time at Layer Road and his place in club history is assured with his links to that memorable day against Leeds United.
"Everyone at the club and the Former Players Association are thinking about Brian's family at this difficult time."
He is also regarded as a Gillingham legend after being leading scorer for five successive seasons, following his £4,000 arrival from Bournemouth in October 1962.
