Ebbsfleet United manager Liam Daish has signed a new one-year contract after guiding the club back to the Blue Square Bet Premier.

Daish led the Fleet to promotion with victory over Farnborough in the Blue Square Bet North play-offs.

He is joined in committing his future to the club by defenders Joe Howe and Derek Duncan.

Midfielder Giannoulis Fakinos and forwards Scott Ginty and Ricky Shakes have also signed new deals.

Daish has been in charge of the club since February 2005 and vowed to win promotion back to the top flight of non-league football after Ebbsfleet were relegated at the end of the 2009/10 campaign.

Chairman Phil Sonara told the club website: "Having Liam on board at the club will give everyone a huge lift, he is pivotal to ensuring we keep the team together and that the success the club has tasted this year has the very best chance of continuing.

"Liam adds much more to the football club than just managing the team, his all-round football experience around marketing and other areas certainly adds tremendous value and we are grateful that he is prepared to share this with the board.

"Liam is hugely popular with the supporters of the club, they admire the skill that he has shown over the past few seasons where he has had to re-build the team from scratch."
