Welling United appoint Bradley Quinton as their new manager
WELLING UNITED chairman Mark Goldberg has stepped down as manager and has appointed Bradley Quinton.
The Wings have slipped down the Vanarama National League South table in recent weeks and are third-from-bottom in the table with 23 points from 24 games and are currently on a five-match winless run.
Goldberg took charge of 31 games in all competitions this season, winning nine, drawing six and losing 16.
“Welling United chairman Mark Goldberg is delighted to announce the appointment of Bradley Quinton as the club’s first-team manager with immediate effect,” said a club statement.
“Quinton, 41, has previously managed Enfield Town and Braintree Town, reaching the play-offs with both club's and winning promotion from the Vanarama National League South in 2018 after beating Hampton & Richmond on penalties.
“As a player, Quinton made over 500 appearances for Braintree Town and was well known as a tenacious midfielder who worked tirelessly in his team’s engine room.”
Quinton's first game in charge was tonight and his new side were dumped out of the Kent Senior Cup in the Second Round by Isthmian League South East Division side Whitstable Town, who won 2-1 at Park View Road.
Danny Waldren and Ejiro Okosieme have today left the club to join Glenn Tamplin at Isthmian League Division One North basement side Romford.
Welling United are level on points with the side inside the relegation zone, St Albans City (who have played a game more) and five points clear of bottom side Hungerford Town.
