Welling United 3-1 St. Albans City

Welling secured a crucial victory against in-form St. Albans City. The result all the more impressive after they had to come from behind to secure the win.

Wings had the first opportunity of the game when Jack Parkinson flashed a header wide from a Jack Jebb corner. But thereafter it was St. Albans who got on top. Callum Driver stood up well and blocked a Zane Banton shot that was heading in.

Banton then flashed a half volley over the bar as St. Albans had plenty of possession.

Welling rode the storm and started to see more of the ball. Jamie Philpot making his Wings debut was fouled on the edge of the area but Jack Jebb curled his effort over the bar.

Last week the Wings defending came in for some criticism, but against The Saints Welling were putting bodies on the line defending resolutely. Anthony Acheampong in particular bravely blocking a goal-bound effort.

With the game drifting towards half-time Welling nearly went ahead. Philpot was able to pick up the ball and drive at the St. Albans defence he found Goldberg, who spotted the run of Jack Jebb but the Wings man could only fire his effort into the side netting.

The game really came to life at the beginning of the 2nd half. The half was just 2 minutes old when Bradley Goldberg was released down the right and his snap shot was heading in but for a super finger tipped save from keeper Dean Snedker.

Then just three minutes later the save was made even more crucial as Ryan Hall tripped former Welling man Murrell-Williamson in the area. St. Albans skipper David Noble calmly slotted home.

However Welling equalised just a minute later. The in-form Bradley Goldberg looked to be going nowhere but his quick feet allowed him to somehow get a shot away and he powered a superb effort into the top corner.

Within 4 minutes Welling had completely changed the game on its head as they took the lead.

Jack Jebb and Ryan Hall produced a smart short corner routine that saw Jebb whip in a superb cross, Parkinson arriving late in the box out muscled Tom Bender at the back post and steer the ball home.

On the hour mark Conor Dymond, not known for his goal scoring, almost scored the goal of the season with an audacious rabona effort from the edge of the area that had Snedker beat but flashed just wide.

Philpot was running tirelessly and he was sent clear, the on loan Millwall forward squared for Goldberg but he was just unable to slot home at the back post.

However in the 72nd minute, the new strike partnership this time combined to put Welling 3-1 up. Durojaiye won the ball in midfield and played a defence splitting pass to send Goldberg through on goal. With Snedker advancing, Goldberg rolled the ball to Philpot to slot into the empty net to get the debut goal his display deserved.

Welling were playing very attractive football and Snedker had to be at his very best to push away a fierce Ryan Hall effort around the post.

St. Albans huffed and puffed but a rash Tom Bender effort that sailed over the bar was as near as they come to getting back into the game as Welling claimed the three points that their 2nd half display deserved.

Welling travel to Concord Rangers next Saturday.

Welling: Vose, Driver, Jefford, Dymond, Acheampong, Parkinson, Jebb, Healy (Durojaiye 67mins), Goldberg (Monakana 88mins), Philpot (Nanetti 90mins), Hall. Subs not used: Coyle, Johnson.

Welling United 2-3 Gloucester City

The Wings crumbled to a home defeat to a gutsy Gloucester City, who clinically claimed the three points. The Wings made two changes with new signings keeper Bailey Vose going straight into the team and new signing Ryan Hall playing on the wing.

Vose was the first to make a save Karnell Chambers slipped in Harry Williams but Vose got down low to save at the near post.

He was soon saving again and this one was an even better save tipping over an Ed Williams’ free kick.

Welling slowly got into stride and Connor Dymond hit a shot from range but it was easily gathered by City keeper James Hamon.

Into the half hour period, Bradley Goldberg drove into the box, but his curled effort was well saved by Hamon.

But that was the last chance of a half that played in tough conditions never quite got going.

The 2nd half was far more entertaining, with Welling now kicking towards the road end, but it was Gloucester who grabbed the initiative. Lewis Hall curling inches wide for the Tigers.

But the away side did take a deserved lead on the hour mark. Chambers was slipped in and with Vose to beat he blasted the ball into the corner of the net.

However the lead lasted two minutes, as Welling levelled immediately. Goldberg picked up a loose ball just outside the area before blasting through a crowd of players that Hamon let slip under his body.

But any hopes Wings fans had that the home side would now go on and win the game took a dent in spectacular fashion.

The Wings had a corner but a simple thump out of defence caught the Wings flat and Ed Williams caused panic to the covering Archie Johnson and Christian Nanetti, unfortunately Nanetti made a hash of his clearance and volleyed past Vose, to put the Tigers back in the lead.

With the game now in its final 10 minutes, Welling equalised again. Nanetti wriggled his way into the penalty area but he was upended by Sam Avery and a penalty was awarded. Goldberg made no mistake from the spot.

However with 3 minutes of injury time added on, Gloucester won the points. The Wings were once again caught cold at the back and the impressive Ed Williams was played in and fired home into the corner of the net.

The Wings could have stole an unlikely point with the last kick of the game but Connor Dymond’s effort was cleared away by Avery on the line.

The Wings have little time to dwell on the result as they travel to Bognor Regis Town on Tuesday. Jamie Coyle will be looking for a reaction from his team.

Welling United: Vose, Driver, Johnson, Dymond, Acheampong, Parkinson, Monakana (Nanetti 69), Durojaiye (Jebb 73), Goldberg, Healy, Hall (Bradbrook 55). Subs not used: Jefford, Coyle.

Welling United 3-0 Braintree Town

Welling produced an impressive display to beat play off chasing Braintree Town at Park View Road.In the process this victory, was Welling’s third victory on the spin.

Welling started with plenty of impetus and really took the game to Braintree. Joe Healy fired over an early chance after Christian Nanetti’s cross fell to him on the edge of the area.

Bradley Goldberg was next to go close a Jack Parkinson free kick was played into the area, the free kick was flicked on by Anthony Acheampong, but Goldberg was unable to keep his lobbed effort down and the ball went over.


Another half chance came Welling’s way when Nanetti hit a fierce half volley over the bar.

In the 27th minute the shape of the game changed. There was very little evidence of any friction between the sides but Ricky Gabriel threw an arm towards Callum Driver after the Wings right back had made a challenge on the Irons player. Referee Jason Richardson took his time before showing Gabriel a red card. Callum Driver was booked for his part in the melee that insued.

The Wings now with a numerical advantage pushed on and a super cross from the impressive Driver picked out Olumide Durojaiye but he headed wide.

The Wings then saw a golden opportunity come and go, Bradley Goldberg drove into the box before picking out Joe Healy his low effort was heading in but Christian Frimpong blocked the goal bound effort.

Having not been in the constant, Braintree went close in first half injury time, Phil Roberts seeing Miles slightly off his line curled an effort just over the bar.

The 2nd half continued with Welling doing all the pressing but without causing to many problems to the Braintree defence.

However in the 60th minute, Welling got the break through they deserved. A smart move between Goldberg and Joe Healy saw, Healy fouled by Joe Ellul.

The free kick, 25 yards out was Callum Driver territory and he expertly curled his free kick past Nathan McDonald who despite getting a hand to the ball could not keep the ball out.

Jonathan Miles then had to be alert to keep out a Roberts’ shot at his near post.

However it was Welling who always looked the more likely of adding to their tally. McDonald did well to tip over Tom Bradbrook’s close range header however Welling scored from the resulting corner. Jeffrey Monakana played the corner to Christian Nanetti who whipped in a fierce cross that Nathan McDonald flapped with his attempted punch, the ball fell kindly to Anthony Acheampong who expertly tapped home, much to the delight of his team mates.

Welling now sensed more goals and Bradbrook saw a header saved by McDonald from close range. However in the 77th minute Welling wrapped up the game with the best goal of the match and certainly a goal of the month contender. A ball was played into Tom Bradbrook who took a touch before playing the ball back to Jack Jebb. Jebb spotted McDonald slightly off his line and went for goal, stunningly curling the ball from 25 yards out over McDonald and into the top corner.

Braintree had a late chance of a consolation but a low Roberts effort was comfortably saved by Miles.

The Wings saw the game out with ease to record the impressive win. They now face an enforced break due to Wealdstone’s FA Trophy commitment.

Welling are next in action at home to Gloucester City on Saturday 10th February.
