Brown’s ten­ure didn’t add up...

The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP FIRST ROUND PREVIEW - G.SUT­TON Welling, Kent

I WAS very in­ter­ested and rather sur­prised to read the ar­ti­cle on Jody Brown in The NLP last week

(Oc­to­ber 22). From a Welling United per­spec­tive, I would like to put the record straight.

De­spite what he was quoted as say­ing, Jody Brown was ac­tu­ally in charge of the club for nine games, draw­ing one and los­ing the other eight.

The first three of those games over the Christ­mas and New Year pe­riod were be­fore the trans­fer win­dow opened but, rather iron­i­cally, it was the sec­ond of those games at home to Torquay where he col­lected the one and only point of his ten­ure.

Dur­ing the trans­fer win­dow he did in­tro­duce one good player in Do­minic Vose but he also in­tro­duced three ex-pros (all com­fort­ably the wrong side of 30) and who had all been ply­ing their trade two leagues down from the Na­tional League.

Af­ter what proved to be his last game in charge of the club at Nuneaton Town (a de­feat that he in­ci­den­tally put down to cross­winds) he said he didn’t care what sup­port­ers thought as they were “un­e­d­u­cated”.

Still, Jody never did let the facts get in the way of his ver­sion of events.
