Welling United head to the coast on Saturday as they kick off December with a trip to Weston-super-Mare (3pm).

The Wings will be looking to continue their good run of form in recent weeks having lost just once in their last eight league and FA Trophy outings – winning three of their last four.

Last Saturday’s impressive 4-1 victory over league-leaders Yeovil Town will stand Welling in good stead and they will have one eye on pulling themselves out of the bottom four.

Danny Bloor’s men sit in 22nd, with Eastbourne Borough just one point better off in 20th having played three games more.

Jack Burchell will remain absent for Welling as he remains out injured, as does Mitchell Dickenson. Taylor Curran is also likely to miss out after picking up an injury in last weekend’s success over Yeovil.


The Seagulls have enjoyed a good run of form of their own in recent weeks, winning three on the spin. That was preceded by a run of four defeats, two draws and a solitary win in their previous seven outings.

In their first season in the sixth tier following promotion last term, Weston currently occupy 17th position in Vanrama National League South with seven wins, three draws and eight defeats, amassing 24 points from their 18 games played.


Danny Bloor: “Yeovil is history – it was great to beat them last week, but that’s done and dusted. We have a tough game at Weston-super-Mare on Saturday and that’s followed by another tough game at Aveley and then onto the FA Trophy.

“We can’t rest on our laurels having beaten Yeovil.”

Weston-super-Mare assistant boss, Scott Rogers: “We’ve got eight games in December and that’s what we want because we want to climb that table.

“That means there are a lot of points to play for and we’ve proven we can beat anybody in this league on our day. We just need to tidy a few things up and we’ve been doing that over the last month and results have shown.”
