Gorman: New Gills coach
Gorman is a hugely respected figure within the game - and has operated at the highest level of the game, as the England national team's assistant manager at France '98.

The Scot is not a completely new face to Priestfield, as he was part of the coaching staff during the late 80's. More recently, he worked in tandem with Glenn Hoddle with England, then Spurs and Southampton.

John Gorman's arrival at the club as part of the coaching setup will definitely benefit both the players and manager Andy Hessenthaler, who will no doubt benefit from Gorman's experience and ideas.
