Ebbsfleet decide to keep Daish on

Daish has asked for assurances of the Kent club's ambition

Ebbsfleet manager Liam Daish will be offered a new contract after a vote amongst the club's owners saw 93% of those polled want to keep him on.

The Blue Square Premier club are owned by subscription website MyFootballClub, which has around 10,000 members - who each get a vote in team matters.

Daish, who has been in charge of the Fleet since 2005, had admitted his future was uncertain in April.

Fleet won the FA Trophy in 2008 and finished 14th in the league this term.

The former Republic of Ireland defender told the club's website: "It's really great to have the backing of the members. Now I can get down to work and start planning ahead of next season.

"A lot has been said about the playing budget and I've made no secret of the fact that it will be a struggle with funds for the squad at current levels.

"But it's encouraging to see that figure on the rise with over 300 members and supporters generously donating funds to boost my playing budget.

"I hope that more members will be able to do the same to give our team the best possible shot at what is going to be a very tough Blue Square Premier next year."
