Welling United appoint former Eastbourne Borough manager Danny Bloor

Tuesday 13th June 2023

WELLING UNITED have appointed Danny Bloor as their new first team manager and he insists his players will work hard and give everything to the cause.

The 53-year-old arrives at Park View Road with a wealth of experience having spent the last three-and-a-half years with fellow Vanarama National League South outfit Eastbourne Borough.

The club said in a statement: “Following a recruitment process which saw a number of candidates interviewed, Bloor was the stand-out and he now becomes the Wings’ boss to lead the club into the 2023-24 campaign.”

Bloor comes in to replace Warren Feeney, who left the club on Monday 5 June to manage Belfast top-flight side Glentoran.

“I’m delighted to be here and I’m already looking forward to that first pre-season friendly,” said Bloor in a statement.

“The thing I can emphasise is that players have to run, they have to work, they have to be proud to wear the shirt and that won’t be any different here at Welling United.

“I want the people of Welling to come and get behind us.  I can’t guarantee we’ll win every game, that’s a fact in football, but I can guarantee they will have a side that will work hard and give everything to the cause.”

Bloor’s management team is set the be finalised in the coming days and will be confirmed in due course after the club announced that Feeney's player-assistant, Sam Cox has left Park View Road today.

Welling United kick-off their pre-season campaign with the annual curtain-raiser against their League One neighbours Charlton Athletic on Saturday 1 July.
