Tonbridge Angels keep faith with manager Steve McKimm
TONBRIDGE ANGELS chairman Dave Netherstreet says manager Steve McKimm is staying at Longmead Stadium.
The club were in the bottom three in the Vanarama National League South table at the time of the football suspension due to the coronavirus outbreak.
“This is absolutely great news for the club,” Netherstreet said in a statement on the club website.
“In these extraordinary and uncertain times it is fantastic that Steve continues to be with us planning for whatever the future may hold.
“Only those inside the club really know the amount of work this guy, along with his assistant Barry Moore does, in bringing success to Tonbridge Angels.
“His relationship with his players, the board and our supporters is second to none.”
McKimm arrived at Tonbridge in May 2014 from his home-town club Sutton United, following the clubs relegation from Conference South the previous month.
McKimm guided the club to the Isthmian League play-off semi-finals in 2016, an Isthmian League Cup Final appearance when they lost 8-3 to Billericay Town on 12 April 2017, and in May 2019 McKimm sealed promotion to National League South following a Super Play-Off Final 3-2 victory over Metropolitan Police at Imber Court.
The club collected 36 points from their 31 league games and were a point clear of the relegation zone at the time of the football suspension but they did have games in hand on their rivals during the 2019-20 football season.
