FORMER Bromley boss and Crystal Palace chairman Mark Goldberg has been named Welling United’s caretaker manager – and is also expected to complete a takeover of the club.
The Wings, who were relegated from the National League following Saturday’s 4-0 defeat at Chester, announced on Thursday that boss Dean Frost had left the club.
The 39-year-old replaced Loui Fazakerley in January but results have been hard to come by and he has left Park View Road alongside assistants Barry Ashby and Jamie Turner.
Goldberg has been out of football since leaving Bromley for a third time in February having guided the club to the Conference South title last term.
With planning for next season now the priority, Goldberg will take caretaker charge of the Wings for their last two games of the season while he looks to wrap up a deal to buy the club from current owners Barrie and Barry Hobbins.
A Welling statement read: “The club wishes to announce that first team manager Dean Frost has left the club by mutual consent.
“Mark Goldberg will take first team management responsibilities for the remainder of the season with a view to Mark also potentially taking on ownership of the club in the near future.
“The club wishes to express its gratitude to Dean and his assistants Barry Ashby and Jamie Turner who have also decided to leave.
“Dean took on the position with the club under a serious threat of relegation, regrettably results have not been what either Dean or the club would have hoped for and with relegation now confirmed the club want to start making preparations as early as possible for what we aim to be a successful season in the National League South.”
