Don’t forget that Ebbsfleet United?s home pre-season friendly with Leyton Orient this Saturday has been designated as an occasion to honour manager Liam Daish, who became the club?s longest serving manager on June 14.
Daish took the helm at Stonebridge Road in February 2005, succeeding the club?s previous longest serving manager, Andy Ford.
?Liam?s record deserves to be honoured? said Fleet Chair Jessica McQueen. ?A lot of people will think that winning the FA Trophy with the Fleet at Wembley in 2008 has been Liam?s biggest achievement with the club, but our fans know that is just one of the highlights of his tenure.?
?Working with small budgets, Liam has produced winning sides time and time again, bringing outstanding players to the club and producing great youngsters such as Michael West, Tom Phipp and John Akinde. He has just signed a two-year contract to demonstrate his commitment to the club and that alone will help us attract quality players and be able to build for the future.?
?We want to use the game for everybody who has enjoyed what Liam has done for the club to come and show their appreciation. We think it will be a wonderful day that everybody will enjoy.?
