Parky leaves PVR

Player-coach Jack Parkinson has today left his role at PVR. Fans’ favourite Parkinson came back to the club in 2017 as part of Jamie Coyle’s management team after playing spells with Dover Athletic, Woking and Maidenhead United and helped Coyle guide The Wings to a top 10 finish in the Vanarama National South in 2017/8.

Parkinson made over 30 appearances over the past year for The Wings and scored four goals, with his most recent coming in a 2-0 victory at Concord Rangers back in February.

On Parkinson’s departure, manager Steve King said “Unfortunately I couldn’t offer Jack the coaching role he wanted as I will be bringing my own team in. I would have loved to kept Jack at the club in a playing capacity as he is a top player, but we completely understand his decision and wish him well for the future and thank him for all he has done for Welling”

All the best, Parky!

King makes first signings

New Welling boss Steve King has wasted no time in constructing his squad for his debut season at PVR.

First-up is goalkeeper Daniel Wilks. Wilks follows King from former club Whitehawk after joining the Hawks mid-season and going on to make 18 appearances. He has also turned out for Maldon & Tiptree, making over 50 appearances for The Jammers.

King has also snapped up Jordan Gibbons after a spell at Whitehawk. The defender recently returned from the USA where he played professionally for Phoenix Rising in the United Soccer League.

Also joining from the south coast is wideman Zack Newton who joins from Worthing. Newton also had a spell at Met Police in 2017/18.

Finally, it’s a familiar face for Welling fans with Craig Braham-Barrett returning to the Club for his third spell. The pacy left back joins from Vanarama National South side Chelmsford City.

All four have signed one-year deals at the club.

King takes Welling hot seat

Welling United are delighted to announce that Steve King has taken the position of manager at the Club on a two-year contract.

King has a wealth of experience at non-league level listing Whitehawk, Macclesfield, Lewes and Farnborough amongst his former clubs.

Most recently King was at the helm at Whitehawk and almost pulled off a great escape with the side looking dead-and-buried. After a huge squad overhaul King inspired the Hawks to a great run of form which included a 2-1 victory over Welling back in April.

King’s CV also includes various play off campaigns and cup success, notably taking Macclesfield town to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup in 2013, for the first time in the club’s history.

Steve will be announcing his backroom team in due course.

Welcome to Welling, Steve.
