Ebbsfleet United have confirmed the appointment of caretaker boss Kevin Watson as their new manager.
Watson told the club’s website: “I am truly delighted. When I took over I only had improvement in the short-term in my sights and now I can look long-term.
“With a club like Ebbsfleet, you knew there was going to be a lot of applicants. I was aware there’s 30 or 40 people waiting for me to fail to take their chance so it does feel like a weight off in a way and there’s nobody over my shoulder.
“Some of the names bandied about have obviously more experience or done more than me but I’ve always backed myself and I will always back myself to get this club out of trouble.”
