Time at Club:
Gillingham will appoint Steve Evans as their new manager on June 1st.
Established in 1893, Gillingham finally gained promotion into the Football League in 1920, but were voted out of the league after the 1937-1938 season, before gaining a path back into the football league when the amount of league clubs were extended from 88 to 92.
Since then Gillingham have been a recognised football league team for most of that time and even gained promotion to Division One through the play-offs in the 1999-2000 season.
The Gills have had several financial problems in the last decade with the ITV Digital breakdown and a brace of relegations not helping their state, but times now look rosier and they can now set their sights on returning to the higher echelons of the Football League under Lovell.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Gillingham collect wins versus Dartford, Blackpool, Plymouth Argyle & AFC Wimbledon while suffering adverse results at Charlton Athletic, Shrewsbury Town & Peterborough United. Draws against Bradford City, Rochdale & Luton Town has seen them show mid-table form at best.
