Welling United are 22nd in the National League table

National League strugglers Welling United have appointed Dean Frost as their new manager.

The Wings, who are 22nd in the table, four points from safety, sacked Loui Fazakerley on Monday following a run of 10 league games without a win.

Frost, 39, will be assisted by former Gillingham defender Barry Ashby.

The duo were part of the coaching set-up when Jamie Day was Welling manager from 2009 to 2014, Frost as first-team coach and Ashby as Day's assistant.

"It's a great opportunity for me and I am very much looking forward to the road ahead," Frost told the club website.external-link

"The aim is clear: survival. The club want to remain in the division and that's a challenge me and my staff believe we can achieve.

"I do not underestimate the task ahead and how hard it's going to be. It's going to be a big test of character."

Jamie Turner has joined Frost's backroom staff as goalkeeping coach.
