He’ll have a familiar face in the dugout alongside him with former Ebbsfleet manager Kevin Watson named Stringer’s assistant.

Stringer led Braintree to the National League South title in 2011 having previously enjoyed success at Aveley. He then spent five seasons at Bishop’s Stortford before joining Chelmsford, where he regularly led the Clarets to play-off contention. He then spent 16 months at Brentwood before leaving nearly a year ago.

Watson made more than 400 appearances for the likes of Tottenham, Reading and Colchester. He has had spells in charge of Ebbsfleet and Billericay while has also served as an assistant at Stevenage, Eastleigh and Hungerford.

Their first game in charge will be in National League South on Tuesday night when Welling host Hampton & Richmond.

They are in the relegation zone, seven points from safety, having picked up just 24 points from 28 games this season with five league wins to their name.
