New-look Welling United recorded another impressive result with an excellent work-out against a Queens Park Rangers eleven.

Whilst results aren’t crucial in pre-season games, winning is a good habit to have and the Wings will look to build on it in their final two friendlies ahead of next Saturday’s league opener with newly promoted Dulwich Hamlet.

Gavin McCallum was a handful up front and twice came close early on. First he had a header well saved from a Jack Jebb free kick before he had another header deflected wide.

However, it was Danny Mills who put Welling ahead. Nassim L’Ghoul sent Craig Braham-Barrett away down the left wing and his low driven cross was put away by Mills.

Just six minutes later, parity was restored. A good passing move was ended when Charlie Owens levelled via a deflected effort.

The visitors enjoyed the better of the remaining fifteen minutes of the half and Dan Wilks had to beat out a fierce drive by Dzshane Dalling. Wilks was beaten just before the break but Arimide Oteh’s flicked lob from Faysal Bettache’s pass drifted wide.

After the interval, Welling took command. McCallum headed over from a Jebb free kick before Welling had the ball in the net. McCallum crossed to the far post, Jebb put it back into the middle and Mills finished. Celebrations were short lived though as the assistant referee spotted something untoward and raised his flag.

Harvey White made a couple of outstanding saves, first from a Jebb shot and then from a Mills header.

It was only a matter of time before Welling scored and they did so in outstanding style. Themis Kefalas made a crude challenge on Mills and Jebb took full advantage by curling over the wall and into the top corner.

McCallum came close with a header that went just wide before a first time shot was also off target.

He scored the goal his performance warranted from his next effort. Another pin-point Jebb free-kick picked him out and he gave White no chance with his well placed header.

It soon became four when an un-named trialist finished in style after good work by L’Ghoul.

Richard Seixas was thwarted by Welling’s substitute goalkeeper before Welling manager Steve King introduced 15 year-old Nathan Gale for his first taste of senior football.

Welling United: Wilks, Gibbons, Braham-Barrett, Ijaha, Ambroisine, Audal, McCallum, Mendy, Mills, Jebb, L’Ghoul. Substitutes included: Kissock, Orlu, Goldberg, Banya, Gale.
