Welling United can confirm that Warren Feeney has left his position as first-team Manager.

Feeney arrived at Park View Road in March 2022 and guided the Wings to survival in the National League South, before overseeing a season of stability in 2022/23, with his side finishing 16th.

The club would like to thank Warren for all of his efforts during his time at Welling and wish him all the very best for the future. 

He will, however, act in an ambassadorial role for the club, offering his advice where necessary. 

Speaking following his departure, Feeney has provided the following statement:

“With a heavy heart, I have decided to step away from Welling. I have been offered a new challenge that I just couldn’t turn down.

“My stats stand for themselves regarding the ups and downs of coming in at a difficult time to save the club. I, with a heavy heart, would like to thank my players, my staff and all the fans. 

“Special mention to the board and Mark Goldberg, Jerry Dolke and my great friend Andy. I want to give big mention to my friend for life, and what an honest soldier he was, in Jake Winchester who stood side by side with me through it all and for every emotion. 

“And to my boss in the club who fully believed in me and was more than a boss to me. It was the most difficult decision I had to make when telling him about my decision.  What a great man and I’m proud to call you a friend and more for life. 

Good luck in your next adventure. Up the Wings.”

The process to recruit a new first-team Manager at Welling United will begin immediately.
