Relegation-threatened Welling United have named Bradley Quinton as their new manager.
He replaces Welling chairman Mark Goldberg in the hotseat at Park View Road with the Wings only outside the relegation zone in National League South on goal difference.
Welling started the season brightly enough but have won just two of their last 12 league games and Goldberg was criticised by many sections of the home fans after taking a family holiday during the festive period, missing three matches - including two derby defeats to Dartford.
King had led the Wings to the play-off final last season but they were denied promotion after losing 1-0 at Woking.
Ironically King has since taken charge at rivals Dartford, guiding them to the top seven in the table, having got the job at Princes Park ahead of Quinton.
Welling now turn to Quinton to rescue their season. The 41-year-old previously managed Enfield Town and Braintree Town, winning promotion with the latter after defeating Hampton in the 2018 play-off final.
Quinton takes charge of Welling for the first time in Tuesday night's Kent Senior Cup tie with Whitstable.
