Steve Evans

Oporto Sports is delighted to announce a working partnership with Gillingham manager Steve Evans.

The agreement will see Oporto act as Evans’ official agents and publicists.

Evans has managed over 1000 games achieving over 450 wins for Stamford, Boston United (two spells), Crawley Town, Rotherham United, Leeds United, Mansfield Town, Peterborough United and Gillingham, winning six promotions.

Oporto Sports director, Dean Eldredge, said: “Steve is a strong, tenacious character, who speaks his mind, building competitive sides with a winning mentality across the Football League.

“From meeting him, it’s clear he retains a strong desire to achieve success for Gillingham Football Club against the odds in League 1 and we look forward to supporting him on that journey."

Steve Evans added: “I’m delighted to be working with Oporto and Dean. I’ve followed their progress and feel confident that our partnership will be mutually beneficial. I took the opportunity to speak to two fellow managers who are part of Oporto’s stable of clients and they spoke of a prestigious, honest, caring and disciplined agency, that cemented my decision.”

Steve, whose current three-year contract with Gillingham is until June 2022, guided the side to a highly respectable 10th place in League 1 last season, and they are competitive this season despite the modest resources within such a strong division.
