Manager Steve McKimm has signed a contract that will keep him at Tonbridge Angels for season 2018/19.
This will be McKimm’s fifth season at the helm at Longmead, having arrived in May 2014 from Sutton United, where he was chief coach.
McKimm had this to say following the signing in the club’s boardroom immediately after the Kingstonian game :“I am delighted that the board have chosen to keep faith with me for next season. I enjoy working at this club, the players, and the people who run it, the volunteers and supporters.
“Of course I am already thinking about next season but would like if possible to keep the core team we already have but to a degree that will be up to the individual players and I will be having discussions with them. One thing we shall be looking at is how we can lessen the amount of injuries to players that have cost us so dear this season.”
Vice chairman Chris Drew said: “Steve is very attached to this club both professionally and emotionally and supporters probably don’t realise the amount of hours he spends in trying to put the strongest team out there each matchday to fly the flag for the Angels against a modest budget. Things don’t always go according to plan – that’s football – but the board know that with Steve he will be trying his utmost for success for our club.”
