Stimson compensation deal agreed

GILLINGHAM have offered Stevenage a six-figure compensation package for manager Mark Stimson.

Stimson quit Stevenage in mid-October and took over as Gills boss on November 1, eventually bringing his number two Scott Barrett with him from the Blue Square Premier club.

Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace said he had received the offer yesterday and was expecting to agree to the deal.

He said: "The actual amount of the compensation agreement will be confidential but I can tell you it’s a six-figure cash settlement proposal, which we think is a fair and equitable compensation figure for the hardship, work and pain we’ve been through since Mark Stimson - and later, Scott Barrett - walked out.

"Once I sign this document, the Mark Stimson story is history. I won’t ever feel good about the way it was done but the important thing is that it will be finished and we’ll draw a line under this with the signing of the document.

"From that moment on Gillingham FC will be just another football club and we’ll treat them no differently to any other club."
