Title: Gary Mills
Post by: JCP on September 17, 2016, 09:01:25 PM
Just been told that he managed you for a few years. What was he like ?

He is having a bit of a tough time here at the moment as the footie is poor and the results likewise.

I think he can turn it round and I like his football ethos.

A genuine bloke and he could still put in a performance on the pitch when with us...........Hope very much that he does turn things around.

Fond memories of his time here. Took charge when we were bottom of the Southern League Premier (pre Conf North / South days) and led us to the 'Great Escape'. Perhaps unfortunate in his one full season in charge to come up against Steve Evans' Boston United; although Mills did lead us to THAT Boxing Day win at their place. Left us early the next season following a budget cut and we were relegated within 18 months.

Cheers. He comes across as a really nice guy. He didnt offer contracts to many of last seasons players and the ones who have come in dont seem to be any better. Worse in some cases.

We are in for a long season I think.
