Following Thursday night's Kent Cup Final victory, manager Ian Varley has decided to leave Gillingham after three successful seasons as manager.
Ian leaves the club after securing a fifth place finish in the Southern Division, the highest finish in the club's history and on the back of a second Kent Cup final win in three seasons.
After 84 games as a manager and a 52% win ratio in the three years he has been in charge of the ladies, Ian has decided it is time to seek a new challenge elsewhere.
He said: "I think it is a good way to go, I started by winning the Kent Cup and I have finished by winning it as well. I have enjoyed my three years with the club and the girls have been brilliant in those three seasons.
"Hopefully someone else can take it on now, the group of girls are brilliant and if you can keep them together and add one or two more players then this club can go all the way. I am sure Martin and Chris will find the right person to take the club forward and continue the success of the last three seasons. I would like to thank everyone for their help and support at my time with the Gills."
Everyone at Gills Ladies would like to thank Ian for his valuable contribution on and off the pitch in the last three seasons, and wish him well for the future.
Speaking on Ian's departure, Chairman Martin Andrews said: "I appointed Ian as manager three seasons ago when I took over the club. It is a sad day for me to see Ian leave and I would like to wish him well for the future and I thank him for the valuable contribution that he has made in his time with us. He will be missed, as he was the most successful manager in the club's history and will be a hard act to follow.
"He was integral to the success of this club in the last few seasons and I am sure he will go on and have a successful career at another team. I would like to thank him for helping to make the team as successful as it has ever been."
The club will shortly begin the search for a new manager for the upcoming 2012-13 season.
