Taylor has previously been in charge of Swindon Town, Walsall and Shrewsbury Town after a fine playing career which saw him make more than 300 Premier League appearances.

And Wealdstone chairman Rory Fitzgerald is pleased to have Taylor on board.

He told the club's website: “We are thrilled to welcome Matt to Wealdstone.

"His experience at the top levels of football, both as a player and a coach, will be invaluable as we strive to develop our club to achieve our long-term ambitions.

"Matt's vision for the team, his clear principles for how he wants us to play and his track record of developing young talent are exactly what we need.”

Wealdstone finished 16th in the National League table last season.
