Gillingham’s 6 Worst Ever Managers (Ranked) by percentage”

The 6 worst ever Gillingham managers ranked on their win percentage

Last year, Gillingham’s first season back in League Two was underwhelming.

The Gills failed to contend for promotion back to League One on their first try, finishing 17th in the standings.

The team had dropped into the fourth division for the first time since 2013.

With their sights set on returning to the third division, Gillingham will be looking to improve their level of competition throughout the course of the upcoming season.

After taking over the first team squad in the early months of 2022, Neil Harris has been given the responsibility of getting the team back to League One.

Even though his tenure as the team’s manager has not been easy, the organisation has supported him while he attempts to make improvements at Priestfield Stadium.

Here, we examine the lowest winning percentage of Gillingham managers throughout history (managers must have overseen ten games to be eligible)…

Burkinshaw took over as Gillingham’s manager in October 1988, however he was only able to lead the team for six months.

During his 32 games in charge, he managed just eight victories, and the squad was in danger of being demoted to the Fourth Division when he was fired.

In the end, Gillingham placed 23rd that season and was demoted from the third division.

After the club finished 11th in the Division 3 South table at the end of the 1936–37 season, Ure took over as manager in May 1937.

But after the squad was demoted from the league, his tenure came to an end a little over a year later.

Of the 45 games he managed at Gillingham, the Englushman only managed 11 victories.

Before the Gills returned to league play after World War I, in July 1919, Collins assumed leadership of Gillingham.

During his ten months in charge, the Englishman guided the team to a 22nd-place result in the SL Division 1, which was later reorganised to become the Third Division.

Only 11 of Collins’ 47 games as the team’s manager were victories.

When it comes to supporters, Flannagan is a far more modern term than those found earlier on this list.

After the 1992–93 season, in which the team finished 21st in the table and survived another year in the fourth division, the now 70-year-old took over in July 1993.

Flannagan won 20 of his 90 games as manager and remained in that position until February 1995.

In October 1992, Roeder assumed leadership as both a player and manager, managing the team’s last games of the 1992–93 season, which saw them narrowly escape Football League relegation.

Despite winning just eight of his 37 games in command, Roeder went on to coach teams in the Premier League in the 2000s, including West Ham and Newcastle United.

From January to September of the same year, Pennock oversaw 32 games for the team.

During this period, his squad struggled and finished close to the bottom of the League One standings. His side only managed six victories.
