Tonbridge Angels manager Steve McKimm pleased with Roger Maddams' appointment as club chairman

By Craig Tucker

Steve McKimm says the new Tonbridge chairman is a ‘gem of a gentleman’.

Roger Maddams was the unanimous choice of the Angels board to succeed Steve Churcher at Longmead.

A Tonbridge supporter for 12 years, Mr Maddams joined the board as events director a
year ago and now holds the top job.

Manager McKimm is looking forward to working with Mr Maddams, a man he got to know following his fundraising efforts after the death of Angels trialist Junior Dian in 2015.

McKimm said: “He cycled to every away game and we had him in the changing room after he arrived so he could shower.

“He’d known of me when I played at Sutton and he came to watch a few times but it was when Junior Dian died that I first had a full conversation with him. Tonbridge have got an absolute gem of a gentleman to be their chairman.

“He’s such a nice fella and I’m looking forward to working with him."

McKimm enjoyed a close manager-chairman relationship with Mr Churcher and expects that to continue with Mr Maddams.

“It’ll be interesting because Roger’s a supporter who came on the board last year and now he’s my chairman," he said.

“It’ll be good to see what his plans are but I’d like to think things will work the same way as they did with Steve in terms of conversations on a weekly basis and even a daily basis.

“It’s for us to sit down and talk and see what his ideas are.”
