Chairman set to appoint Steve Evans as Manager

Steve Evans set to take the manager's hot seat at Priestfield.

Chairman Paul Scally has revealed that he is set to appoint Steve Evans as the club’s new first-team manager.

The former Leeds United, Mansfield, Rotherham and Peterborough boss will commence his role on June 1.

The Chairman revealed his intentions in his end of season report, which was published on the club’s official website.

He said: “Steve is no fool, and neither am I to be fair, he is aware of comments against him from some supporters, about his reputation, about what people are saying about his past, but I would never entertain the prospect of bringing in a manager whom I thought was wrong for the Club, and although no manager comes with guarantees I can categorically say that Steve Evans is by far the best candidate for the role I have seen, and I intend to appoint him as Club Manager, he will commence his role on June 1st .

“Steve has had good success as a Manager in the past and I fully expect him to bring us success both on and off the field, working within our budgets. He also had a successful career in commercial business before his time in football, so he is well balanced in how business works and the needs to increase revenue from non- football related activities.”
