Welling United surrendered local bragging rights to rivals Bromley in a tale of two penalties.

Joe Healy missed a spot kick for the Wings on Saturday (July 27) in a 2-0 defeat at Hayes Lane.

Bromley, who play a division below Welling in the Conference South, took the lead after 18 minutes through Ashley Nicholls. The midfielder fired past goalkeeper Lee Butcher after beating Fraser Franks to the ball.

Ross Lafayette had already had an effort well saved by Bromley goalkeeper Max Huxter, and he denied Welling captain Lee Clarke just before half-time.

The Wings had the perfect opportunity to eqaulise in the second-half when Loui Fazakerely was brought down by Joe Anderson, but Huxter produced a remarkable save from Healy’s effort to keep the score 1-0.

Minutes later Bromley were awarded a penalty of their own when Pierre Joseph-Dubois was brought down by Blaine Hudson. Captain Danny Waldren stepped up confidently to blast the ball into the net.

Welling were made to pay for their profligacy in front of goal as Loick Pires and Jake Gallagher squandered presentable openings.

Earlier in the week the Wings won 2-1 away to Maidstone thanks to goals from Callum Webb and Lee Clarke, and they are due to welcome a Southampton XI to Park View Road on tomorrow (July 30).
