New Welling United manager Steve King reckons the minimum target for the National South outfit is the play-offs next season.

The experienced King signed a two-year contract with the Wings last week and immediately started to reshape his squad as he brought in four new players.

Welling chairman Mark Goldberg has gone for experience to replace Jamie Coyle. King has had plenty of success – and he is expecting the same to be the case at Park View Road.

“There is no target. Nothing has been set saying I need to do this or that. But knowing me as a manager I have come first, second, third, fourth and fifth – I’ve had four play-offs. I know the level better than anybody.

“The only pressure is what I put on myself. My target is the play-offs, minimum. That’s how I am as a manager. It is not something I just want to be in, I need to be striving.

“If we don’t make the play-offs that is not enough for me.”

King went back to Whitehawk in mid-September with the Sussex side winless and rooted to the foot of National South.
