Former Welling captain Ricky Wellard looks set to leave the club.

The midfielder has not featured under new boss Dean Frost since the start of February and looks set to depart Park View Road after just eight months at the club.

Welling manager Frost confirmed: "He is in and out of the squad at the moment.

"I think he maybe in the process of moving on but that hasn't been finalised."

Wellard was named club captain in the summer by former boss Loui Fazakerley but has scored just three times in 34 appearances.

The 27-year-old former Sutton and AFC Wimbledon midfielder has not started a game under Frost at Welling, coming off the bench just twice. He has not made the matchday squad for the last three games.

Frost also confirmed that forward Michael Bakare had left Park View Road while he is keen on experienced midfielder Ibrahim Kargbo, who made his debut in Saturday's defeat to Aldershot.

"He has trained with us for four or five sessions," said Frost. "He has trained well and is more enthusiastic than some of the young lads. he brings a lot of experience to the side and has played at a good level.

"He was part of the reason why we looked strong and organised in the first half."

Welling travel to Bromley on Tuesday night looking to end a winless run of 17 matches in the National League.

Defenders Michael Chambers and Ian Gayle could return from injury but forward Ade Yusuff and Sam Corne are not likely to feature.
