Hugo Langton: Good luck to Brad Quinton, he’s a good guy with good ideas. I hope he can alleviate some of the recent issues and have a real go at it
COACH Hugo Langton says he has enjoyed working with the players at Welling United.
Chairman Mark Goldberg decided to step down from the managers role at Park View Road and appointed former Braintree Town boss Bradley Quinton last Tuesday.
Langton and Osei Sankofa also left the club as Quinton appointed Mahrez Bettache to join his management team.
“The Welling United chapter has now ended,” said Langton in a statement.
“I don’t feel I need to say much. Those inside the game understand what the situation is and those who don’t will continue to talk c**p. Both are fine with me.
“Big thanks to Mark Goldberg, he was the sole reason I came to the club. People should give him a break as he makes incredible sacrifices for the club. He’s a good man and a great friend.
“The players too, great lads with a lot of ability. I’ve enjoyed working with them all and their company.
“Good luck to Brad Quinton, he’s a good guy with good ideas. I hope he can alleviate some of the recent issues and have a real go at it.”
The Wings were knocked out of the Kent Senior Cup in the Second Round in Quinton’s first game in charge on his first day at the helm, going down to a 2-1 defeat to Isthmian League South East Division side Whitstable Town at Park View Road.
Quinton took his side to Vanarama National League South leaders Wealdstone at the weekend and went down to a 1-0 defeat.
St Albans City claimed a point in a 3-3 draw at Eastbourne Borough, which meant Welling United slipped down into the relegation zone (bottom two) at the weekend, having collected 23 points from their 25 league games.
Welling United play a must-win clash against Hungerford Town next time out, at home on Saturday 18 January (15:00).
Their opponents are the only side below them in the league table, five points below them with 25 games played.
