The manager is going to be using the video conference app Zoom on Wednesday with seven of the club's supporters.

It’s another way the League 1 boss is keeping fans engaged while football is on hold.

The Gills won’t play again until it’s safe to do so, with an EFL statement on Friday saying that they were suspending the competition indefinitely. Gillingham have nine games left to play.

Gillingham haven’t trained together since March 16 and they haven’t played since snatching a late draw at Sunderland on March 7.

During the last month Evans has been doing his bit with the fans, including a prize giveaway which he is funding and a four-part video which was filmed from his home near Peterborough.

The latest initiative is to run three 45-minute sessions, this Wednesday, Saturday and the following Wednesday. Seven fans will sit in on each of the calls and the manager will be welcoming any kind of questions.

Speaking to the fans, he said: “It is an opportunity to speak, to ask questions and to cover anything that is topical. I also want to know what the fans have been up to in isolation.

“Let’s talk about players, let’s talk about systems, let’s talk about what is good and what is not so good, how we can learn and how we can build on the momentum that we have created.

“I am going to sit and have a beer and a chat and hopefully you are at the right age and you can have a beer too, or a glass of wine, and we can do it very informally.”

The first session starts at 7.30pm on Wednesday and anyone wishing to take part must message the club's Twitter account to say why they should be selected. A member of the Gills team will be on hand to host the event, ensuring all attendees have the chance to speak.

Attendees will be picked at random.
