Jamie Turner has left Welling United and signed for Ebbsfleet United.

The goalkeeper was put in caretaker charge of the Wings, alongside captain Jake Gallagher, when they played away to the Fleet in the FA Trophy first round on December 13.

That followed Jamie Day's departure from Welling to become Ebbsfleet's new manager.

But now Turner has left the Vanarama Conference club. Welling announced on Monday that he had been the subject of a seven-day approach from Fleet on Sunday evening.

A club statement said: "After talks between the club and Turner on Monday, the necessary paperwork was completed at Park View Road to enable Turner to leave the club.

"The club would like to place on record their thanks to Jamie for helping as joint-caretaker manager in the past few weeks after previous manager Jamie Day decided to join Ebbsfleet.

"Jake Gallagher will take charge for Tuesday's FA Trophy replay against Ebbsfleet with Loui Fazakerley again part of the management team as he was on Saturday in the league win over Aldershot at Park View Road."

Ebbsfleet confirmed on Tuesday morning that they had signed the 34-year-old.
