Steve Tilson New Frontrunner For Gillingham Vacancy

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 25 June 2012, 10:07

Former Southend United manager Steve Tilson has emerged as the new odds-on favourite in the Next Gillingham Manager Market following a second round of interviews. Martin Allen had been the frontrunner for the job ever since Andy Hessenthaler was sacked in May and remains in the running, with odds of 6/4. Other contenders include Peter Taylor, Steve Constantine and Alex Scott.

Tilson has managerial experience with Southend and Lincoln City but has not been in the dug-out since last October. His first job in management was in charge of Southend, with whom he spent seven years. During his time at the club the 45-year-old led the The Shrimpers to back-to-back promotions from League Two to the Championship as well as to two Football League Trophy finals. Notable results include a shock win over Man Utd in the League Cup in 2006 and a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the 2008/09 FA Cup. Tilson lost his job in July 2010 after he was placed on gardening leave.

Towards the end of 2010 he became the new manager of Lincoln City but relegation followed by a woeful start to the 2011/12 season meant that he lost his job after less than a year in charge. Tilson has since been working at his football academy, which he runs with former Southend player Danny Greaves.

Gillingham will be looking to mount a series promotion challenge next season as they set their sights on getting back in League One. At the moment Paddy Power have the The Gills priced at 4/1 to win promotion and 20/1 to top the league.
