Ramsgate FC has announced the departure of manager Steve Lovell.

Ramsgate FC appointed the former Gillingham Football Club manager in April last year.

He came into the club following the resignation of Matt Longhurst.

The former Wales International has an impressive CV both on the field and as a manager, having played for Crystal Palace, Millwall, Swansea and Bournemouth, Lovell has enjoyed managerial posts at Welling United, Ashford and Sittingbourne as well as two stints at Gillingham.

Rams are currently second place in Isthmian South East and have made several new signings, including forward player Gil Carvalho from Ashford who returns to The Rams after a spell at the club in 2019 and striker Rowan Liburd.

Rams striker Josh Ajayi has left the club to join Dover.

In a short statement on social media Rams FC said: “The club can confirm that we have parted company with manager Steve Lovell.

“We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Steve and his assistant Mark for their hard work during their time with us.”


  1. Ridiculous at this stage of the season .
    2nd in table on verge of promotion and now we wait to see what happens next , if we don’t go up this year it will be down to this stupid decision.

  2. A very strange decision, with crowds averaging in league games of 660. I remember a few years ago we all though 200 was a good crowd.
    Will the Rams management tell us supporters the reason, I doubt it.

  3. Mr Lawson has got some explaining to do .
    Obviously he don’t want promotion well now it probably won’t happen and it’ll be another season in south division .
    Come on Ramsgate explain your decision?????

  4. Frank Lampard aint busy But thank you to Steve and manager team. Sometimes moving out is a very positive move,
    Ta for leaving the team in a good position.

  5. ticking along nicely then the wheels fall off,just like to know what happened,its not too late,don’t let the team loose confidence
