Welling United boss Jamie Day looks forward to Charlton Athletic visit
The Wings finished in sixteenth-place in the Conference Premier last season and have been made second favourites for relegation by bookmakers along with their reprieved Kent rivals Dartford.
The visit of Charlton Athletic – who finished in eighteenth-place in the Championship table, finishing on 51 points from 46 games, seven points clear of relegation – always brings in a large crowd to boost the coffers for the Park View Road club.
“We are looking forward to the yearly visit of Charlton,” said Day.
“It will be a very tough game as normal but one we enjoy and we get a good work-out from.
“It will also be good for some of the new ones to get a feel for the home ground and a chance for supporters to see the new signings.”
The Wings opened their pre-season campaign with a 4-1 win away to Ryman League Division One South side Sittingbourne on Tuesday night.
Goals were scored from Harry Beautyman, Charlie Penney and a brace from Joe Healy.
