Margate have announced that Nikki Bull has been appointed first-team manager until the end of the 2017/18 season
Bull, who took caretaker charge in December, oversaw a ten-game unbeaten run has now committed to Hartsdown Park until April 2018.
Despite currently being on a nine-game losing streak, chairman John Webb insists the recent off-field issues have not helped matters and that Bull is the right man to lead the Gate forward.
“Nikki has had to work in some difficult situations over the past few weeks and his attitude and commitment to the job have been first class,” Webb said.
“We know what Nikki can achieve with this football club and we look forward to enjoying a successful era under his management”.
Webb says this appointment now ends off-field uncertainty and the Margate fans have a huge role to play over the final three games.
“The fans have been on a journey with us over the last few weeks and now they have been fantastic. We have a huge three games now to make sure we remain a National League South side next season and the fans are very important in those three games starting today away at Bishop`s Stortford.”
