Gillingham keeper Tomas Holy in upbeat mood despite mistake at Dover

Czech keeper Tomas Holy held his hands up to a mistake that led to Dover’s equaliser on Saturday.

The big keeper failed to collect a cross and when the ball ran loose, Dover’s new Australian recruit Giancarlo Gallifuoco was there to stab the ball home.

It will be a moment Holy will want to forget but he was in upbeat mood afterwards.

“I am feeling great,” said the 6ft 8inch stopper. “The holiday was long for me, football missed me. I like work and I like football.

“It was a clear mistake, it was 100% a clear mistake. But it is a friendly and it is better that it happened here and not in a league game.

“I am excited for the new season, very much.”

Holy is still learning English, having arrived in January on a two-and-a-half year deal, coming through the youth ranks at Sparta Prague.

While he is getting to grips with life in England, one thing he does love is the fans.

“I love them,” said the 25-year-old. “It is a different class than Czech Republic.

“They are good fans but here they are amazing for me, the Gillingham fans are unbelievable.”

Gillingham face Chatham Town at Maidstone Road on Tuesday night in their latest pre-season match (7.45pm).
