Former Wisbech boss Whaley on why he joined Spalding
Former Wisbech Town manager Brett Whaley attended training at his new club Spalding United yesterday (Thursday) evening, just two hours after being confirmed as their boss.
Whaley was at the session to meet the players and will be in the dugout on Monday when the Tulips host Carlton Town.
He said: "When the opportunity came to be involved with the project it was too good to turn down. After meeting club officials, it's clear we share the same goals. I am aware how ambitious the club is and look forward to helping them achieve their goals.
"I would like to thank everyone at Wisbech Town for all their help and support over the last two years and wish them all the very best for the future."
Spalding said that Whaley will "join the current first team management team and work closely with Bruno Porfirio and the rest of the current team".
Spalding CEO Leigh Porter added: "Brett brings years of experience of local football to the existing management team and that was something we were very keen to add.
"After speaking to a number of people in the last few weeks it was clear Brett shares our ambition, work ethic and goals."
