Gillingham appoint their new manager

Gillingham have this evening confirmed that Steve Evans will be their new manager, starting his role from the 1st of June.

Evans, has been out of work since he was sacked by Posh in January, where he won 21 of 52 games in charge. He takes over from Steve Lovell, who left the Gills in April.

Paul Scally, the club’s chairman, said: “Steve is no fool, and neither am I to be fair, he is aware of comments against him from some supporters, about his reputation, about what people are saying about his past, but I would never entertain the prospect of bringing in a manager whom I thought was wrong for the Club, and although no manager comes with guarantees I can categorically say that Steve Evans is by far the best candidate for the role I have seen, and I intend to appoint him as Club Manager, he will commence his role on June 1st .

“Steve has had good success as a Manager in the past and I fully expect him to bring us success both on and off the field, working within our budgets. He also had a successful career in commercial business before his time in football, so he is well balanced in how business works and the needs to increase revenue from non- football related activities.”

Gillingham ended up finishing 13th in League One this season and also saw them go on an FA Cup run, knocking out Cardiff in the third round.
