Simon Walton is backing Harry Wheeler to go far in management, Kent Online report.

Walton has followed his old Billericay boss to Maidstone, signing a one-month loan deal. The former Leeds and Charlton midfielder enjoys working with Wheeler and can see the 30-year-old going a long way.

Walton, 31, said: “I described him the other day as new-school but old-school. He knows what the game’s all about now, he knows what you have to do to win games.

“But he still brings that old-school discipline and professionalism, whereas at some places everyone’s got to have a philosophy and all these magical words that get thrown about here, there and everywhere.

“I hate that word, philosophy. You might get away with it in the Premier League but I’m not quite sure you need a philosophy down here.

“The philosophy is to get three points, surely? Harry’s very adaptable and he brings a lot of qualities.

“He’ll go on to bigger and better things, I’m sure, but at the minute he’s got a job to do here.”
