Two key players from Welling United’s title-winning season have signed on for a crack at the Conference National.

Captain Lee Clarke and right-back Loui Fazakerley have put pen to paper, following Jack Obersteller, Kurtis Guthrie, Jake Gallacher and former striker Loick Pires, who has signed from Woking having left Park View Road last summer.

Clarke joined the Wings in 2009 and scored nine goals in 41 appearances last season.

Player-manager Jamie Day said: “We’re delighted that Lee is staying with the club as we make the step up to the Conference Premier.

“Even though he reverted to midfield in recent seasons, he is the Conference South’s all-time leading scorer and I’m sure he’ll be looking to add to his tally for the club in the division above next season.”

Fazakerley is the club’s longest-serving players having signed from neighbours Bromley in 2008. Despite missing a large part of last season through a foot injury, he still made 29 appearances - returning for the title-clinching game against Boreham Wood.

Day added: “I’m delighted that Loui has signed a new deal.

“He brings added versatility to the squad and a great work ethic, and I know the fans will be delighted that he is staying with us in the Conference Premier.”
