Prolific Paterson Is Striker King Has Been Waiting For

Welling United have added weight to their promotion push by signing one of the National League South’s most prolific strikers.

Matt Paterson has left Oxford City to move to Park View Road.

He scored 27 goals last season, and has begun the new campaign strongly - scoring six times in the league so far.

Manager Steve King has been looking for an out-and-out goalscorer for a while and hopes Paterson can prove the difference.

On the club’s website, he called the former Scotland U19 international “the striker I have been waiting for”.

Welling are in great form an sit in third place going into the weekend.

They can put pressure on leaders Billericay with a home victory over Slough Town on Saturday.

But they must tackle that match without one of the players who has been so important to their recent fantastic run.

Craig Braham-Barrett has been called up by the Montserrat Football Association and will play for his country on Sunday in the Concacaf Nations League.
