Gillingham's new signing Adam Birchall could make his debut in Wednesday night's pre-season friendly at Ramsgate.
The striker became Gills' eighth new face of the summer on Tuesday when he penned a three-year deal and, having trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Wednesday morning, is poised to get his first taste of match action.
Manager Andy Hessenthaler told Gillingham's official website: "We might get Adam involved for 15 to 20 minutes and just get his legs going. It depends how he feels after training but we will be sending a good squad to Ramsgate."
Hessenthaler watched his side ease to a 5-0 friendly triumph at Erith & Belvedere on Tuesday night.
Young trialist defender Jack Baldwin put in another impressive display, and Hessenthaler added: "I think he's going up to Hartlepool for a week's trial on Monday. They want to have a look at him and we want him to do that so we'll see what happens.
"If all of a sudden they put a contract on the table to him then we may well have to step in, but we'll see how it goes. He's got a future and we will certainly keep an eye on him."
