Welling bounce back with Eastbourne victory

11:37 05 September 2012

Welling United got its season back on track with a comfortable 2-0 win over Eastbourne Borough last night.

Following on from their first defeat of the season last weekend against Hayes and Yeading player-manager Jamie Day asked for a reaction and he got one thanks to goals from top scorer Ross Lafayette and Keirnan Hughes-Mason.

The Wings were always in control against the Sussex side but had to wait until five minutes into the second-half for Lafayette to make the dominance count. Hughes-Mason completed the win with his fist goal for the club with 15 minutes remaining.

The win takes Welling up to seventh in the table. Staines Town are the next visitors to Park View Road on Saturday (September 8).
