Wings add three to squad ahead of Hungerford at PVR

Welling United will play last season’s high flyers Hungerford Town at Park View Road on Saturday, kick off 3:00pm. The Wings come into the game after a battling 0-0 draw at Eastbourne Borough on Tuesday night and are also unbeaten in two matches after previously drawing 3-3 at Park View Road against Bognor, a game where they had chances to run up a cricket score but were indebted to Joe Healy for grabbing a draw in the second half with a trademark long range strike.

Hungerford are 2 points ahead of the Wings, Town come to Park View Road on the back of consecutive 2-0 defeats (at home to Hemel and away at Oxford).

Ahead of the game the Wings have brought in 26 year old forward Lloyd Macklin from Met Police, Macklin is a strong forward with pace and can play as a striker or winger and he got off the mark for Met Police with a brace of goals in the opening game of the season vs Worthing. Lloyd had previously played for Swindon Town, Torquay United and Basingstoke Town. Also joining is 21 year old midfielder Jack Jebb from Vanarama National outfit Sutton United, Jack started out at Arsenal as a youngster before moving on to Stevenage, Newport County and then Sutton United. The third new singing sees 23 year old winger Jeffrey Monakana join on loan from Vanarama National side Sutton United, Jeffrey made over 50 appearances for Preston North End as well as being at Arsenal, Brighton and Aberdeen among his previous clubs. Welcome to our new players who go straight into tomorrow’s squad.
The Wings Bar is the place to be tomorrow as its £3 a pint and the Wings Bar will be showing Swansea City vs Manchester United on Sky Sports on many HD screens before the Wings game vs Hungerford Town. The Wings Bar will also be selling Atomic Blonde real ale.

Wings entertain Chelmsford City tonight at PVR

After losing to an injury time goal away at Truro on Saturday, the Wings will look to beat title favourites Chelmsford City at Park View Road tonight, kick off 7:45pm. The Clarets started the season with a 2-0 victory at home to Gloucester City on Saturday thanks to a brace from ex Greenock Morton striker Kudus Oyenuga .

The Wings came from 2-0 down at Truro to equalise via a brace of their own from player-manager Jamie Coyle, it was not enough… as despite the Wings looking like going on to claim a win after a half time formation change, it was the hosts who celebrated a welcome 3 points after an injury time cross sailed into the net from River Allen.

If you are coming this evening, make lots of noise and get behind the players, the Wings bars are open on the Welling United side of the ground and there are also two seated grandstands for you to purchase seats after entering the ground.

Make sure you visit the Club Shop in the cabin in the car park for this season’s kit and much more merchandise.

Coyle signs Christian Nanetti

Welling United player/manager Jamie Coyle has strengthened his squad by bringing 25 year old winger Christian Nanetti back to Park View Road, the diminutive Italian winger left Park View Road for a spell at Cork City last season but it was a short spell in Ireland as he left due to being unable to force his way into their starting line up.

Jamie Coyle was pleased to snap up Nanetti this afternoon “Christian will give us an outlet on the left hand side and his excellent crossing abilities should create chances for us. He is two footed and offers us options in attack as he can play on either wing and in other attacking positions. Hes skilful and productive and has looked good in training with us despite having not played recently. He knows the club well having been here last season where he made a good impression, i am pleased to have signed him for this season.

Nanetti has signed subject to the Wings getting International clearance after his spell in Ireland.

In anticipation of tomorrow’s big game for the Wings we spoke to Wings boss Jamie Coyle on Friday afternoon to get his thoughts.

 

“First of all I would like to thank Karl Robinson and his staff for bringing his squad down to play tomorrow and wish him all the success this season, it’s a friendly I played in a few years back for us and I know the players and the fans always enjoy this one.

Over the last three weeks we have seen a number of trialists in both training sessions and friendly games at Welling Town, Bedfont Sports and Phoenix  Sports, where some have done well and others slightly struggled.

After Saturday’s game we will be making a decision on all of them that remain so we can start working even harder on the training ground with the squad that we envisage working with come August 5th, which also allows us to start increasing the amount of minutes each player gets in the forthcoming pre-season fixtures.

Tuesday was a very worth while game at Phoenix where again we had a mixture in both halves of trialists and first team players and as expected looked rather rusty and disjointed. The main objective was to get 45 minutes in the players legs and also see how some of the trialists interacted with our current players. Clearly some were out of their depth, while others done really well and will be involved in the game tomorrow.

I hope you all enjoy the game tomorrow

Coylie”
