With some young players it looks to be a bright future for the club, says Steve McKimm
Wednesday 31st December 2014TONBRIDGE ANGELS boss Steve McKimm says the club has a very bright future with him in charge.
McKimm took charge from Tommy Warrilow after the club suffered relegation at the end of last season after three seasons playing Conference South football.
Hopes were high for a push towards the play-offs this season, but the Angels go into the New Year sitting in sixteenth-place in the Ryman Premier League table with 29 points from 25 games, five points clear of the relegation zone.
Tonbridge Angels were moments away from claiming a 2-1 victory over league leaders Margate at Longmead Stadium last Saturday, before Margate goalkeeper Nikki Bull scored a last-gasp equaliser, his second goal of his career.
McKimm takes his side to bitter-rivals Maidstone United, who are in second-place, in an ALL-TICKET SELL-OUT on New Years’ Day, before welcoming eighth-placed Wingate & Finchley to Longmead Stadium on Saturday.
“I’m very proud of the players for the result against Margate with ten-men,” said McKimm.
“Maidstone and Wingate & Finchley are fighting for the title and play-offs respectively and will be as tough as they come.
“I’ve got a depleted squad with injuries as we have been all season but the players put out there will give their all.
“With some young players 2015 looks to be a bright future for the club.
“The club has been steadied financially so far this season and will continue to do so.
“The fans’ support has been immense home and away and long may it continue with us hopefully producing results on the pitch to give them even more to cheer.”
