Feeney commits future to Welling

Having staved off relegation, Welling United have announced changes in ownership and management news.

Mark Goldberg has stepped down as chairman and has been replaced by director Paul Whitehead. The other operational board members will be Brett Smith (Vice-Chairman), Howard Prosser, Garry Fiore, and Matt Mein.

There will be further additions to the operational board over the coming weeks with proclamations to follow.

The board’s first task was to conduct discussions with manager Warren Feeney who had achieved what he was brought in to do in keeping the club in the Vanarama National League South. The conversations were fruitful.

Feeney told the club’s website “I am delighted to sign a new contract with Welling United. It is a fantastic club with a great future, and I am keen to be part of it.

“There will be no rest in the off-season, as we have already begun work on building a competitive team for 2022/2023. I would like to thank the board, staff, players, and fans for their support and cannot wait to see all the fans back in pre-season”.

Whitehead said “The board was unanimously in favour of re-appointing Warren as First Team Manager. He came into the club at a difficult time and managed to pick up the vital points we needed in order to stay up in the National League South. We are all excited to see what he will be able to achieve next season.”

An announcement on Feeney’s retained playing squad will be made by the club shortly.
