Tay­lor ex­its as Gills in hunt for new man­ager

Evening Express (City Final) - - Sport -

FOR­MER Eng­land Un­der-21 boss Peter Tay­lor has left his role as di­rec­tor of foot­ball at Gilling­ham, where he had been stand­ing in as care­taker man­ager. Tay­lor – who also had spells in charge of the likes of Le­ices­ter, Brighton, Hull, Crys­tal Palace and Wy­combe, as well as pre­vi­ous stints with the Gills – re­turned to one of his for­mer clubs in the sum­mer to help out then head coach Ady Pen­nock. How­ever, fol­low­ing a poor start to the new Sky Bet League One cam­paign, Pen­nock was sacked at the end of last month, with Tay­lor step­ping back into the dug-out on a tem­po­rary ba­sis. With the Kent club ex­pected to make a more ex­pe­ri­enced per­ma­nent ap­point­ment – linked with a move for Mans­field boss Steve Evans, Shaun Derry at Cam­bridge as well as another for­mer man­ager Martin Allen – the Gills and Tay­lor have parted com­pany. A brief state­ment is­sued on the club’s of­fi­cial Twit­ter feed read: “The club can con­firm that Peter Tay­lor has left his role as Di­rec­tor of Foot­ball/ Care­taker Man­ager with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.”
