Gillingham boss Steve Lovell signs new contract

Gillingham manager Steve Lovell has put pen to paper on a new two year contract with the club.

The 57-year-old, who has been with the Gills since Peter Taylor left his position in October of last year, has overseen an impressive run of form, helping the side move up from 23rd to 15th position in the League One table.

The Kent club are now completely out of relegation danger, sitting a comfortable 11 points above the drop zone with just five league games left to play.

A delighted Lovell told reporters, “It’s all sorted. I’m glad the Chairman has given me the opportunity and I’m very happy.

“When we’re safe then I can start looking at players that we’ve got listed and see what we can do to bring them in for next year.”

Gillingham face a tough trip to relegation threatened Oldham Athletic tomorrow, where they will be searching for a first league win in five games.
