Andy Hessenthaler appointed Gillingham assistant manager
Gillingham manager Peter Taylor has appointed club stalwart Andy Hessenthaler as his new assistant.
The 48-year-old replaces John Schofield, who left earlier this month.
Hessenthaler made over 360 appearances for the Gills during a playing career at Priestfield which spanned a decade and included a spell as player-boss.
Hessenthaler, who has spent much of the last year scouting for Championship club Burnley, played under Taylor at Dartford at the start of his career, at Gillingham in 1999-00 and also during a loan spell at Hull in 2005.
His 20-year-old son Jake is currently on the Gillingham playing staff, having come through the club's academy.
