The former Welling manager takes control ‘with immediate effect’

Ebbsfleet United has announced it will be bringing onboard Jamie Day to manage the team

The 35-year-old was appointed as the new first team manager with immediate effect on December 10.

Vice chairman of the club, Peter Varney, said the board were happy with the appointment.

He said: “The owner and the board opted not to advertise the role as having considered the potential candidates, they were unanimous that Jamie Day was the only candidate they wished to initially discuss the vacancy with. The discussions with Welling United have been amicable and we have reached a compensation package acceptable to both clubs and I would like to thank the board of Welling United for the professional manner in which they have conducted the negotiations.

“Jamie has done an absolutely brilliant job at Welling over the past five years and we believe he is the right man to bring success to the club. He will have the full backing of the owner to do just that. It is ironic that his first game this weekend will be a home tie with Welling in the FA Trophy. Jamie will, however, watch from the stand and let Daryl McMahon take charge of the team on the day.”
