....honour manager Liam Daish, who became the Blue Square Bet Premier club’s longest-serving manager on June 14th.
Daish took the helm at Stonebridge Road in February 2005, succeeding the club’s previous longest-serving manager, Andy Ford.
MyFootballclub chairman Keith Handley commented: "The members of MyFootballclub have always held Liam Daish in the highest regard. This was shown again recently when the members ratified his new two-year contract with a 98.5% Yes Vote. As a member said at the time, `An outstanding manager who has shown great commitment and loyalty to the club , we would be remiss if we didn't show a similar loyalty to him`.”
“Liam’s record deserves to be honoured,” said Fleet chair Jessica McQueen. “A lot of people will think that winning the FA Trophy with the Fleet at Wembley in 2008 has been Liam’s biggest achievement with the club, but our fans know that is just one of the highlights of his tenure.
“Working with small budgets, Liam has produced winning sides time and time again, bringing outstanding players to the club and producing great youngsters such as Michael West, Tom Phipp and John Akinde. He has just signed a two-year contract to demonstrate his commitment to the club and that alone will help us attract quality players and be able to build for the future.
“We want to use the game for everybody who has enjoyed what Liam has done for the club to come and show their appreciation. We think it will be a wonderful day that everybody will enjoy.”
