After matches against Folkestone Invicta and Sevenoaks Town this week, the Stones travel to Welling United for another traditional pre-season fixture. The Wings and Maidstone have met a number of times in pre-season over recent years but this is the first time that the Stones will be the team from the higher league after Welling were relegated from the Conference National at the end of last season.
Former Bromley boss Mark Goldberg is now in charge at Park View Road and he has made a lot of changes to his squad over the summer. One of those has seen Kevin Lokko move from the Wings to the Stones and in the last week, former AFC Wimbledon defender / midfielder Sam Hatton, who helped the Dons into the football league, has joined Welling.
The Wings have had a mixed start to pre-season. They went down 4-1 to League One Charlton Athletic last Saturday but then on Tuesday night they thumped Erith and Belverdere 7-1 with seven different players getting on the score sheet.
