Jerry Wants To Toast New Bath City Deal With Promotion

Jerry Gill wants to celebrate his eighth year at the Bath City helm in the National League.

The 53-year-old has been in charge of the Romans since 2017, marking a return to Twerton Park having played over 200 times for the club between 1990 and 1996.

After another positive season, he has signed on for more - this week handed a new contract to remain at the helm to extend his commitment.

Bath need one more point to secure their National League South play-off place but their +20 goal difference means it will take a whopping final day swing to stop them from extending their season.

They travel to Aveley on Saturday, one of the sides looking to snatch a top seven spot.

Gill is thrilled to be staying put and now really wants to achieve something he’s been trying to get for so long - promotion.

He said: “I’m delighted to extend my stay at Bath City. It is a special club and means a lot to me. We have an amazing group of committed players, both on and off the pitch. We hope we can keep this group together as much as possible going into the new season.

“We have plenty to play for and are determined to secure our target of a play-off spot.”

A club statement read: “The board is pleased to announce Jerry Gill has signed a new contract and therefore will be staying on as our manager. Jerry has shown great tenacity this season, using his footballing links to recruit some brilliant new players, and keeping us in or close to the promotion places throughout the season.

“The club has enjoyed record attendances this season which is credit to the quality of play and inclusive community atmosphere.”
