Steve McKimm can’t understand why rival managers feel the need to talk about Tonbridge, report Kent Online.
Folkestone boss Neil Cugley claims Angels under-achieved in the Bostik Premier last season as the clubs prepare to meet at Cheriton Road on Bank Holiday Monday. McKimm happens to agree with his opposite number but that’s not the point.
The Tonbridge boss said: “I’ve read what Neil’s said about us and it’s a fair assessment.
“I could say Folkestone over-achieved but I’m not like that. We know what we didn’t do well last year and we’re trying to rectify it.
“People always seem to talk about Tonbridge Angels and I don’t get it. We’re in the same league as them.
“We’re not Maidstone, Dover, Ebbsfleet or Dartford.
“We’re Tonbridge Angels and we’ve been at the level we’re at for five years.
“We only had three seasons in the Conference South so I don’t get where this ‘big club’ thing comes from.”
