Daggers announce Taylor

The Daggers have announced this afternoon that the new first team manager is Peter Taylor.

The Daggers announce Peter Taylor

The Daggers have announced this afternoon that the new first team manager is Peter Taylor. The official announcement can be found here.

Taylor was chosen from over 80 applicants for the job and we wish him all the very best for his time with the Daggers in what are far from an easy circumstances.

Taylor, now 65, had a distinguished playing career starting at Southend United, and includes Crystal Palace, Spurs and Orient on his playing CV. He won four England caps in 1976, scoring two goals for the Three Lions.

His managerial career includes a long list of clubs and spells in charge of the England U20 and U21 sides and a game as caretaker boss of the full England side after Kevin Keegan threw his teddy in 2000. Taylor famously gave David Beckham the captain's armband in that game for the first time.

A local boy, born in Rochford, Taylor's most recent jobs in English football have been a second and third spell at Gillingham, sandwiched with a role at Indian club Kerala Blasters and as assistant coach of the New Zealand national team, a role he still holds.

His last job at Conference level was at Stevenage Borough in 2007/08 where he took over in November 2007 on a short term contract. Having been 3rd when Taylor was appointed, Boro finished 6th that season, just outside the playoffs, and Taylor moved on.

Peter Taylor's managerial and coaching career:
19861990 - Dartford (Player-manager)
19911993 Watford (Assistant)
19931995 Southend United
19951996 Dover Athletic
19961999 England U21
19992000 Gillingham
20002001 Leicester City
2000 England (caretaker)
20012002 Brighton & Hove Albion
20022006 Hull City
20042007 England U21
20062007 Crystal Palace
20072008 Stevenage Borough
20082009 Wycombe Wanderers
20102011 Bradford City
20112012 Bahrain
2013 England U20
20132014 Gillingham
2015 Kerala Blasters
2016 New Zealand (Assistant)
2017 Gillingham (caretaker)

Taylor's assistant will be Terry Harris, who returns to the club having left for Boreham Wood last season.

A player for the Daggers in the 1970s, Harris was assistant to Garry Hill when the club was promoted into the Conference and remained with John Still, before following him to Luton, then returning once again when Still retook the reins at Victoria Road.

Harris has worked with Taylor before at Dartford and the pair seem well suited to the job of rebuilding the Daggers from the ashes of the recent off field turmoil.

The appoinments have been met with a surge of optimism from most Daggers fans, and we wish them both the best of luck in days to come.
