JAMIE WINGS IT!

The Non-League Football Paper - - RESULTS SERVICE - By Sam El­liott

DAY has walked out on the Welling United man­ager’s job for the sec­ond time in two years. The club’s for­mer mid­fielder only re­turned to Park View Road in late Novem­ber when he re­placed Mark Gold­berg af­ter a dif­fi­cult start to the Na­tional League South sea­son. Day, who first quit the Wings in 2015 to take the Ebbsfleet United job, has been lured away this time by the Foot­ball League. He has linked up again with close friend Ady Pen­nock, who has been given the chance to re­place for­mer Fisher Ath­letic and Bil­ler­icay boss Justin Ed­in­burgh at League One Gilling­ham. Pen­nock was work­ing with Day at Welling as a foot­ball con­sul­tant but they aren’t the only Kent club to lose out as Brom­ley as­sis­tant man­ager Steve Lovell has left Hayes Lane to join the pair at the Pri­est­field. Los­ing Day is a ham­mer blow to United af­ter win­ning their last four games con­vinc­ingly – in­clud­ing a fine dou­ble vic­tory over Margate, with the team scor­ing eight goals over the back-to-back fix­tures. Their form un­der the re­turn­ing boss had given fresh hope to a play-off push in the sec­ond half of the sea­son. Welling have acted quickly to keep their sea­son on track and for­mer Hayes & Yead­ing man­ager Tris­tan Lewis and coach Harry Wheeler placed in charge un­til a full-time re­place­ment for Day is found. A Wings state­ment said: “As dis­ap­pointed as we are to lose their ser­vices, we ac­cept their achieve­ments over re­cent weeks have been recog­nised and re­warded.” Lovell, Neil Smith’s num­ber two at Brom­ley, said: “I have loved work­ing at the club but the op­por­tu­nity to again work at my home town club was too good to refuse.”
