Wings player-coach Jack Parkinson spoke to us about the game. “Its a game we can get some minutes into some of the players legs, we’ve got 4 players suspended for the Chippenham game. Bradley Goldberg and Tom Bradbrook will get a run out and it will give Ian Gayle and Sean Francis a chance to play as well. Its a game to keep us ticking over after missing a game on Saturday”
Welling manager Jamie Coyle was left “disgusted” with his players as Haringey Borough knocked the Wings out of the FA cup at very first hurdle. Despite the abject performance, Welling could have squeezed through had Christian Nanetti scored his penalty, as it was Haringey scored a penalty of their own just a minute later, to win the tie.
Just 8 minutes were on the clock when a hopeful punt out of defence caught the Welling backed four standing cold, this allowed Ralstoh Gabriel to run clear before coolly rounding Dillon Barnes and slotting into an empty net.
1 almost became 2 as Gabriel tried his luck from range and just curled an effort wide.
The Wings slowly tried to get in the game as Joe Healy saw a deflected shot sail over the bar for a corner.
The Wings won two free kicks in quick succession just outside of the area, the first that Christian Nanetti blasted into the wall and the second were Joe Healy whipped in a great delivery that Eli Phipps headed just wide.
Back came the away side and Anthony McDonald hit an effort wide.
Welling almost grabbed an equaliser on half time as Eli Phipps headed wide from a super Jeffrey Monakana’s cross.
It was the last contribution from Phipps as he made way for Jack Jebb during the half time break.
The Wings drew level in the 57′ minute former Margate keeper Valery Pajtet came for and missed Monakana’s deep cross and Healy was on the spot to slide the ball into the empty net.
Healy almost gave Welling the lead shortly after, beating his way through the Borough defence but he poked his effort straight at Pajetat.
Pajetat then saved well from Jebbs free kick, before the crazy minute commenced
Nanetti was brought down in the area by Gabriel as Nanetti clung to the ball and took the penalty. His low tame effort away to the right of Pajetat was easily saved. Sensing their luck maybe in Haringey went straight up the other end and won a a penalty of their own. Olufemi was brought down by a ridiculous challenge from Ben Jefford, who had three Welling players supporting him. Gabriel confidently stepped up and sent Barnes the wrong way.
Welling as they had done all game huffed and puffed but failed to trouble a well organised Haringey defence. In the last minute of injury time, Jamie Coyle almost stole a draw but his header was saved by Pajetat. The final whistle was greeted with a chorus of boos from a very disgruntled Park View Road faithful.
Welling face Charlton Athletic in the Kent senior cup at home on Wednesday, before they travel to Havant & Waterlooville where Jamie Coyle has said he is looking for a big reaction from his players.
Jack Parter’s contract has been terminated by mutual consent. The Wings defender signed in the summer from Tonbridge Angels but was injured in pre season and was then sent on loan to Kingstonian.
Wings boss Jamie Coyle spoke to the official website this afternoon to notify us that Parter has left the club. “Jack was unfortunate to miss the whole of pre-season with injury and with the current form of both of our full-backs We couldn’t see him getting into the team. I would like to wish him all the best wherever he ends up playing”
Jamie Coyle has added another striker by signing 21 year old striker Flo Bojaj today. The 21 year old striker played and scored for Huddersfield Town in the Championship in 2016. Bojaj also played for Kilmarnock and Newport County.
Bojaj goes into the squad for tomorrow’s game at Park View Road vs Poole Town.
Welling United will play either Haringey Borough of the Bostik North or Hitchin Town of the Evo Stik Southern League in the 2nd qualifying round of the FA Cup. The draw was made today and sees the Wings enter the competition at this stage and receiving home advantage to a lower league opposition.

Haringey won the replay 3-2 on penalties this evening and will face the Wings in the 2nd qualifying round at Park View Road
Jamie Coyle has brought in young midfielder Harry Phipps on loan from Maidstone United. The versatile midfielder played against the Wings for Margate last season before signing for Maidstone United.
Wings manager Jamie Coyle was happy to add Phipps to his squad “Harry is an attacking midfielder/striker who is a great addition to the squad. Harry is very versatile as to where he can play and with his stature and energy levels he adds more quality and physical presence to the squad. I was very impressed with Harry working with him last year at Maidstone United, he is another player that works really hard and causes problems in the oppositions penalty box”
Harry goes straight into the Wings squad that travels to play Oxford City in Vanarama National League South tomorrow, kick off 3:00pm.
