Gulls confirm Wellmen appointment

Pitching In Isthmian League North leaders, Canvey Island has confirmed the appointment of Brad Wellmen and Sammy Knott as first-team manager and assistant manager at Park Lane.

The duo took temporary charge following Mark Bentley’s departure to Southend United in October and have now been handed the role on a permanent basis after continuing the former midfielders’ good work at the helm.

Speaking to the clubs’ official website, Gulls Chairman, John Batch enthused: “Brad and Sammy have done brilliantly since taking over, with three excellent performances and results under their guidance.

“I’ve spoken with several members of the squad who have made it clear to me that they feel that the current setup will give us the best chance of having a successful season.

“We as a board have therefore decided to recognise this by officially promoting Brad and Sammy to provide clarity and stability, allowing everyone to focus on our goal of achieving promotion.”
