Liam Daish is set to become Ebbsfleet United?s longest serving manager after agreeing a two-year extension to his contract, the news arriving on the fourth anniversary of his side’s FA Trophy win at Wembley.
Daish joined the Fleet, then Gravesend & Northfleet, in February 2005, in succession to Andy Ford. By signing a new contract with the club, Daish will become the Fleet?s longest serving manager on June 14 ? day 2,682 ? eclipsing Ford?s previous record tenure in the post.
Ebbsfleet director Jessica McQueen commented: ?This is undoubtedly our biggest signing for some time. Liam has proved time and again what a great manager he is and we are delighted that he has committed himself to the club for a further two years.?
?His skill in identifying players to bring in, organising them, motivating them and creating successful teams is without question, but he has proved to be so much more than a football manager to this club. His presence is felt throughout Stonebridge Road and we welcome his experience and expertise in a range of areas.?
?He is not just becoming this club?s longest serving manager but is one of the longest serving managers in all of football. To have his continued involvement gives us the stability to progress.?
