It's been a long journey for the club. I joined them when they were down on their uppers and spent 5 great, but tough, years there seeing them go through massive changers and laying the foundations for their current success. Was lucky enough to be in the side that win their first trophy in about ten years back in 2003 and the club has gone on from there. Play-off victories, London and Kent Cups, three first round proper FA Cup appearances and a steady climb through the leagues to the pinnacle of the non-league game.
They have the right backing and the Chairman is extremely passionate about the club having played, and still occasionally turns out in the Vets team, for the club and has backed it with a lot of his own money.
Will they hold their own in what is essentially a professional league these days? I dont know? But, if you use Welling Utd as a yard stick, then they have more than a fighting chance.
