Ramsgate feel that Lloyd has more than proved himself during over the past few months, and have confirmed his position going forward. In response, he has made the following statement:
"It's with great pleasure that I can confirm I have accepted the role as head coach on a permanent basis.
"A lot has happened in the 3 months since taking charge but it's a fantastic opportunity and one I just couldn't turn down.
"The club has shown a tremendous amount of faith in my ability to let me coach and manage, in particular the chairman Phil Fennell, and I hope to pay them back with success on the playing field.
"Discussions regarding the structuring of the club are now taking place. My role as head coach oversees all teams down to youth level, and working with my assistants Tom Hickman and Joe Radford we aim to continue the club's fantastic reputation of helping and giving young footballers the opportunity to improve and progress.
"The season is fast drawing to a conclusion and already we are having discussions about next season with players and coaches.
"Lastly I would just like to thank all the Ramsgate fans for their amazing support to myself and my team since we started this journey at the beginning of the year. Our targets couldn't be higher and we will do everything to achieve them for you."
