Steve McKimm signs new one-year deal to stay at Tonbridge Angels
STEVE McKIMM has signed a new contract which will keep him at Tonbridge Angels until May 2019.
Manager McKimm arrived at Longmead Stadium in May 2014 from his home-town club Sutton United, where he was chief coach under Paul Doswell.
“I am delighted that the board have chosen to keep faith with me for next season,” McKimm, who signed his new contract on Saturday, said in a statement on www.tonbridgeangelsonline.co.uk.
“I enjoy working at this club, the players and the people who run it, the volunteers and the 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 added: “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 to plan – that’s football – but the board know that with Steve he will be trying his utmost for success for our club.”
Tonbridge Angels are in eleventh-place in the Bostik Premier Division table with 53 points from 36 games. The club are 11 points adrift of the play-off zone with 10 league outings remaining this season.
