Maidstone United captain Shaun Welford faces a fight to get back into the team
By Craig Tucker
Maidstone boss Jay Saunders has admitted it is difficult leaving
captain Shaun Welford out of the team.
Welford (pictured) faces a fight to get past Ade Olorunda and
Stuart King, who have scored three goals each in their last two
United host Tooting at the Gallagher Stadium in Ryman League
Division 1 South on Saturday with Saunders reluctant to change his
in-form front two.
He said: "Shaun’s been brilliant this season but he’d been ill
and had gone off the boil a bit.
"Ade’s come in, his workrate has been superb and we felt Kingy
needed a run of games to get the best out of him.
"They’ve played well together and scored a few goals which gives
me a headache because Shaun’s our captain and I don’t like him not
being in the side.
"He offers us so much, not just in attack but defensively as
"But I’m a big believer that if you’re in the side and playing
well, you keep the shirt."
