Welling United 3-2 Hungerford Town

Welling picked up their first win of the season on Saturday, with an entertaining 3-2 win. The victory was not without a scare though after cruising into a three goal lead inside 20 minutes, The Wings allowed a hard working Hungerford a way back into the game, but Welling held on for a confidence boosting and deserved 3 points.

Having signed in the week from Sutton United Jack Jebb and Jeffrey Monakana went straight into the starting line up and it was midfielder Jack Jebb who was to have a major impact on this game.

The visiting side from Berkshire started brightly, Stefan Brown maybe should have done better with a scuffed effort that Dillon Barnes saved well.

James Clarke then had a chance that Ben Jefford did well to clear, so it was somewhat against the run of play when Welling took the lead in the 4th minute.

A superb free kick from Jebb, was inch perfect for player-manager Jamie Coyle, who planted his header beyond Lewis Ward for his fourth goal, which put him joint top scorer in the league.

Hungerford didn’t seem rattled by going behind and Warren Bentley produced an excellent cross that Louie Soares headed just wide from close range.

The Wings made the visitors pay for that miss as in the 15th minute Welling doubled the lead. Bradley Goldberg picked up a sloppy pass, before taking a touch and hitting a low effort from 20 yards out that just skipped off the PVR turf and over the dive of Ward, nestling into the bottom left corner of the net.

The Wings soon added a 3rd, Jack Jebb’s set pieces were a delight to watch and in the 19th minute he whipped in a corner which was met at the near post for Tom Bradbrook to expertly head home into the top corner.

The Wings looked in control until the 29th minute. The Wings were caught too narrow on the left hand side and a cross from the left was met by Stefan Brown, whilst Barnes made a super reaction save from Brown’s header Louie Soares was on hand to smash home the rebound.

The goal didn’t seem to rattle Welling and another Jebb delivery was met this by Gayle in an identical move to the 3rd goal, but his header flashed wide. The Wings were dealt a blow though when Tom Bradbrook pulled up with a groin injury and was replaced by Lloyd Macklin who signed in the week.

The lively Stefan Brown saw an effort tipped over by Barnes, but Welling should have added a 4th soon after. A clever flick on by Goldberg sent Macklin away but he rather snatched at his effort and put it wide of the post.

But Hungerford ended the half strongly as Barnes saved a low Warren Bentley shot right on the half time whistle.

Hungerford started the 2nd half just a brightly as they finished the 1st with Soares curling an effort wide. Welling though could have wrapped the game up shortly after the break. An insightful flick from Jack Jebb played in Bradley Goldberg but he could only shoot straight at Lewis Ward in the Hungerford goal.

This miss seemed to effect Welling and galvanise the visitors as they pushed forward Rhys Tyler hitting an audacious effort over the bar before Barnes saved a Bentley free kick.

Welling were not seeing much of the ball but they did nearly finish the game off on the counter attack. From an acute angle Goldberg forced a smart save from Ward with an effort that was heading in.

But Hungerford who had made a triple substitution to try and claw the game back saw a Bentley shot bravely scrambled away by the Welling defence. However the Hungerford siege on the Welling goal did pay off in the 90th minute as a ball over the Welling defence saw Hopper calmly finish past Barnes to set up a nervy final 4 minutes injury time.

But it was Welling who nearly added to their score as Macklin curled an effort just wide of the post.

The Wings players punched the air in delight on the referees Full Time whistle after recording the first win of the season and making it unbeaten in three games.

Welling now have a week off before the Bank Holiday weekend sees them travel to Oxford City on Saturday and play host to Hampton on Bank Holiday Monday.

Eastbourne Borough 0-0 Welling United

Having been on the wrong end of a 10 goal thriller in the corresponding fixture last season, fans of both sides were treated to a rather sedate game this time around. In a game which was never short of effort, it just lacked that final bit of quality from both sides and finished goalless.

Eastbourne started on the front foot and centre back Gary Charman met a deep cross at the back post that was well gathered by Dillon Barnes.

Welling though had a great opportunity to take the lead in the 12th minute, a clever pass from Christian Nanetti played in Bradley Goldberg and with him bearing down on goal the striker failed to connect properly with his effort allowing Vose to smoother the ball away.

Eastbourne who were looking to play on the counter attack despite being the home side, saw Charlie Harris try an audacious long range effort which was straight at Barnes. The home side then went route one playing a long ball over the top of the Wings defence, the ball found Charlie Harris but again Barnes made a good save.

Eastbourne were fully on top and in the 32nd minute they should have gone ahead. Nathaniel Pinney was played through and with just Barnes to beat he toe poked his effort wide of the goal.

Charlie Harris was conducting a shoot on site policy as he again hit an effort from outside the area but Barnes again made a good save, especially after the shot had taken a wild deflection.

In a rare Welling attack, Bradley Goldberrg saw his goal bound effort bravely headed away by Gary Charman, but it was level at half time.

Into the 2nd half Welling started brightly and Tom Bradbrook got free down the left before cutting inside but he smashed his effort into the side netting, although a few Wings fans to the side of the goal began to celebrate thinking the ball had crashed into the back of the net.

Barnes was out smartly to avert a Eastbourne counter attack, but by and large Welling were on top in the opening stages of the 2nd half and Parkinson who was playing as centre back with Jamie Coyle headed a deep Goldberg corner wide of the post.

However back came Eastbourne and only a stunning save from Dillon Barnes prevented Eastbourne going ahead as Odubade made room for the shot and his effort took a wicked deflection that Barnes tipped around the post.

Pinney then saw a header crash back off the bar as The Sports began to assert more pressure on The Wings.

With the game ticking towards its conclusion Christan Nanetti produced a perfect cross but Bradbrook could only glance his header wide, as The Wings had to settle for a point.

Welling return to Park View Road on Saturday when they face Hungerford Town.

Welling United 3-3 Bognor Regis Town

Welling picked up their first point of the season in a thrilling 3-3 draw to newly promoted Bognor, but it was a game The Wings know they could and should have won.

This free scoring game came to life as early as the 9th minute. A simple long ball over the top of the Welling defence caught them cold and Jimmy Muitt raced cleared and smashed his effort past Dillion Barnes.

But Welling were level straight away, a deep Connor Dymond corner was met by a towering Jamie Coyle header which arrowed into the top corner.

The game was turned on its head just two minutes later in the 13th minute as Welling went ahead. Joseph-Dubois picked up a sloppy Bognor pass and he played the ball to Bradley Goldberg who took a touch before arrowing a low effort past Dan Lincoln in the Rocks goal.

You could see the goal allowed Welling to settle and they were fully on top. Connor Dymond blazed an effort over before Ian Gayle saw his goal bound header somehow blocked on the line.

Another Connor Dymond corner saw Tom Bradbrook glance a headed over from close range.

However in the 22nd minute Bognor were gifted an equaliser. A cross from Tuck on the left hand side looked a simple catch for Dillion Barnes but the on loan keeper inexplicably dropped the cross into his own net.

So Welling had to regroup and Joseph-Dubois almost gave The Wings the lead again from an acute angle but Lincoln was equal to the stop. So The Wings went in level at the break.

The 2nd half took a fairly similar pattern to the first with Welling doing the pressing and Bognor looking to break on the counter. In the 49th minute Healy wriggled free and with him looking certain to scorer he poked the ball wide. Bognor then went close themselves as Ollie Pearce’s shot was well saved by Barnes.

A ball into the box from Gayle was cleverly cheated down by Healy into the path of Goldberg but the former Bromley man fired well over.

Welling saw a big claim for a penalty waved away when a Jack Parkinson pile driver was blocked by the arm of a Bognor defender. As Welling pushed in search of a 3rd Connor Dymond had a shot deflect just over the bar.

Goldberg was looking lively and he was inches wide with an effort that had Lincoln beaten.

It was all Welling pressure and Olumide Durojaiye who came on as a sub an impressed, found the head of Bradbrook to head back for Healy but his audacious volley went high over.

When Goldberg raced clear in the 68th minute and Bognor keeper Dan Lincoln saved his low effort, you got the feeling it was going to be one of those days.

So it was no surprise in the 70th minute on the counter attack Bognor took the lead again. Jimmy Muitt skipped down the right crossed low for Ollie Pearce who met the cross with an outstretched foot.

Welling had to regroup again and once again equalised just two minutes later, Joe Healy smashing an effort from 25 yards into the top corner.

So now Welling had 15 minutes to find the winner, but they just could not find their way through. A low Bradbrook cross was turned against the bar only for Gayle to smash the rebound wide before Goldberg saw an effort go inches wide of the post. Sub Christian Nanetti then went over in the area as a penalty looked sure to be given but instead ref Jacob Miles booked Nanetti for simulation.

Then in the last minute of a tupsy turvey game Dillion Barnes came to the rescue atoning for his earlier mistake palming away a Harvey Whyte effort after the Rocks player had skipped past 3 challenges.

So Welling had to settle for a point in a throughly entertaining game, they now travel to Eastbourne on Tuesday night looking to build on this point.

Welling United: Barnes, Gayle, Jefford, Parkinson (Nanetti 67), Coyle, Francis, Dymond, Healy, Bradbrook, Goldberg, Joseph-Dubois (Durojaiye 59). Subs not used: Pavey, Pattisson.

Welling United 0-1 Chelmsford City

Welling crashed to back to back defeats on Tuesday night at the hands of title favourites Chelmsford City. Having defended manfully for 82 minutes, a clumsy challenge in the area from Alfie Pavey saw Lee Barnard score from the penalty spot.

On the back of Chris Lewington’s sudden retirement on Monday, the management team acted quickly and drafted in Colchester’s Dillon Barnes on loan to replace him.

The Wings started brightly and they went close first. Connor Dymond slipped an expertly weighted ball through to Bradley Goldberg, the striker took a slight heavy first touch but still managed to force a smart save out of Sam Beasant who blocked the ball with his feet.

Welling were on the front foot again and former Welling man Chris Bush was adjudged to have handled the ball just outside of the area, the Welling players adamant that it was inside. Christian Nanetti hit the free kick straight at the wall and it was cleared.

Chelmsford slowly crept into the game and they went close when a clever move from a throw in saw Kudus Oyenuga set up Chris Dickson but he fired well wide of the goal.

Dillion Barnes then had to be alert as a Michael West shot from range took a massive defection that looped up but Barnes saved well.

The visitors should have taken the lead shortly after, a Michael West free kick was met by Oyenuga but he headed over unmarked in the area.

If the first half was an even affair the 2nd half saw Chemlsford dominant possession for long periods as Welling failed to even create a chance.

Oyenuga a menace throughout for Chelmsford wriggled free for a shot but Coyle did well to block his goal bound effort.

Former Ebbsfleet man Michael West fired over from 20 yards before sub Lee Barnard hit a stinging shot that Barnes did well to claim.

Welling were still defending really well and throwing bodies in the way of shots as Ian Gayle bravely blocked an effort from Matthew Johnson.

However in the 83rd minute, Welling failed to hold out. After the refee Jack Packman overruled an offside decision to give a corner, Alfie Pavey made a clumsy challenge on Barnard, pushing over the City sub in the box and the penalty was awarded. Up stepped Barnard and he sent Barnes the wrong way.

Chelsmford nearly added a 2nd in time added on as well as Oyenuga broke on the counter attack but forced a good save from Barnes.

Welling host Bognor Regis Town at Park View Road on Saturday hoping for their first points of the season.

Welling United: Barnes, Gayle, Jefford, Parkinson, Coyle, Francis, Dymond, Healy, Bradbrook (Pavey 75), Goldberg, Nanetti (Joseph-Dubois 63). Subs not used: Durojaiye, Pattisson, Brown.

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.
