Peter Taylor clinches Gillingham manager’s job despite FA Cup draw
Monday 11 November 2013
Peter Taylor has been confirmed as Gillingham’s permanent manager until the end of the season.
Taylor took control at the League One club on an interim basis almost a month ago to the day following Martin Allen’s sacking.
He had won two and lost two of his four league games prior to Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to non-league Brackley in the first round of the FA Cup.
Gillingham’s chairman, Paul Scally, has seen enough to call off his search and appoint Taylor on a full-time basis until May at least.
