Brown’s tenure didn’t add up...
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.
