The club announced today that manager Steve Brown has signed a new two-year contract. Assistant manager Steve Gritt and first-team coach David Jupp have also signed for the same period of time.
Club chairman Dr Abdulla Al Humaidi said, “When KEH acquired the club last June and appointed Steve Brown as first-team manager he had very little time to assemble a squad of players for the 2013/14 season. I have been very impressed with Steve and the progress the team has made this season and we are well placed to qualify for the end-of-season play-off competition but we are taking nothing for granted.
“Additionally we have a Kent Senior Cup Final against Dover to look forward to on 5th May. This season has been Steve’s first as a manager and I am sure that the experience he has gained will be put to very good use going forward. Making this step now will allow Steve to plan for next season and beyond.
“I have also been impressed by the work of Steve Gritt, David Jupp and all the backroom team and there is a very good spirit within the club which is key to success in any football club.
“This is an important step forward in the future development of Ebbsfleet United FC and I urge all our supporters to give their total support to the management and players as we strive to achieve a successful end to the first season under KEH’s ownership.”
