Ebbsfleet United are pleased to announce this morning that Daryl McMahon has signed a new five-year contract with the club.
Chairman Dr Abdulla Al Humaidi said, “Daryl has done a brilliant job at this club, initially with the youth academy and for the past two years as first-team manager. The quality of the football played has been outstanding and despite the disappointment of losing the 2016 Promotion Final on penalties in his first full season, Daryl galvanised the squad and got his just rewards this season with promotion to the National League.
“He is dedicated and committed to this club and conducts himself so professionally at all times and is a great ambassador for the club. I want him to know how much we appreciate what he does and I want him to feel secure in his role; offering him this long-term contract demonstrates our confidence in his ability to continue the progress made in the last two years”
Ebbsfleet boss Daryl McMahon told FleetOnline, “Over the past two years the club has backed me 100% and as a young coach it is vital I have time to help me to develop as a manager and learn my trade without the pressure some managers face week on week. I love this club and feel totally comfortable with the support structure around me and our supporters can rest assured that I will be doing everything I can to move this club forward.
“I want to see the team and the stadium develop in tandem and I want to put this club on the football map. The supporters were brilliant towards me and the players last season – and if we can maintain the attendances we saw in the latter stages of last season I promise them that we will entertain them and always give total commitment to the cause.”
Meanwhile, the Fleet manager has been busy in negotiations with players and the club will confirm any new deals publicly as soon as we are able.
