Gary extends his contract

By Rob Overfield

The gaffer signs for another two years

GARY McCann has extended his deal at The Beveree by two years – and can’t wait to tackle the National League South again after his first experience of the division last season. He put pen to paper on Thursday night, almost exactly a year since he was appointed first team manager.

He said: “I had the news recently that I would be working with a reduced budget, but I’m aware of the efforts being made to improve it and I want to respond to that. I have never been a quitter and I want to take on this challenge. It’s an exciting time.”

In his first season, Gary achieved a 15th-place finish and took the Beavers to the FA Cup first round with a team he had to build from scratch.

Chairman Jacques Le Bars, who took over the reins at the weekend following Graham Wood’s departure said: “I have been really impressed with how tirelessly Gary has been working to build the squad for next season, despite the difficult circumstances.

“I think this extension shows commitment from both the club and Gary to the challenges ahead and provides us with a stable management team going forward.

“With some of the players signed so far and knowing other targets Gary is chasing I, for one am really excited about next season and cannot wait for it to start!”
