Former Gillingham manager Peter Taylor has taken over the reins at National League South side Welling United.

Taylor takes on the job at the Kent side just weeks after former Gills boss Steve Lovell vacated the position at Park View Road following a difficult start to the season.

Chairman Mark Goldberg took charge of the side for the Wings’ 6-0 loss to Dartford on Saturday and he’s now made the decision to bring in the experienced, former England Under 21 manager to guide the side forward.

A statement on the club’s official website reads:

“The club is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Taylor as the new First Team Manager.”

“Peter has had an illustrious football career both as a player and then subsequently as a Manager, managing not only in the Premier League with Leicester City as well as various Football League Clubs (leading teams to promotion on four separate occasions), but also at international level with the England Under 21 team and Under 20 team.”

“Peter has taken charge of the First Team’s training session today and his first game in charge will be on Saturday away to Oxford.”
