Welling United defender Fraser Franks has been rewarded for a consistent season with a new contract.

The 22-year-old centre-back, who can also operate at full-back, enjoyed an excellent first season with the club, culminating in a Conference South title winners medal and a first England C cap.

The former AFC Wimbledon stopper made 43 appearances for the Wings in all competitions last season, scoring four goals.

Welling boss Jamie Day said: “I’m delighted that Fraser has signed his new deal and we can look forward to the new season.

“He made a big impression on everyone at the club last season and we were all proud of him making his England C debut.

“I am sure that he will continue to develop in the Conference Premier and, hopefully, his performances will earn him more call-ups to future England C squads as a Welling United player.”

Franks joins a raft of players from last season’s squad to sign new deals - Anthony Achempong, Sam Mott, Jamie Turner, Ross Lafayette, Kiernan Hughes-Mason, Kurtis Guthrie, Joe Healy, Lee Clarke, Loui Fazakerley, Jake Gallagher and Jack Obersteller.
