Maidstone boss Jay Saunders was a kid on the terraces the last time United played Gillingham. Saunders, who celebrated his 39th birthday yesterday, used to watch the Football League derbies as a young Stones fan. Years later, he's in the Stones dugout for what will be the first competitive meeting since a 1-1 draw in the old Division 4 in 1992.
Maidstone beat old rivals Gillingham to reach the semi-finals of the Kent Senior Cup. Jack Paxman gave United the lead but Gills trialist Rhys Murphy levelled before half-time. Stones made most of the second-half running and reached the last four with Reece Prestedge’s deflected winner. Both managers, as promised, named strong teams for the clubs’ first competitive meeting since 1992. Stones boss Jay Saunders named his entire first team bar Stuart Lewis but in Paxman had an ideal replacement.
Joe Pigott says he's gutted to leave Maidstone but had to think of his career after signing for AFC Wimbledon. Pigott has joined the League 1 club for an undisclosed fee after they met the striker's release clause. The 24-year-old, United's top scorer with 14 goals in league and cup, made his final appearance for his hometown club in their FA Trophy win over Heybridge on Saturday.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
