Welling keeper goes viral as footage surfaces of his ‘world class’ save against Chelmsford

Welling United keeper goes viral as footage surfaces of his ‘world class’ save against Chelmsford City on Monday night.

It was in the 64th minute of the National League South clash on Monday that Reice Charles-Cook somehow pulled off the excellent save to keep out the hosts as he got down to his right to keep out Luke Jenkinsโ€™ header from a corner, pushing the ball up and over the bar.

It was one of many stops he made, as can be seen in the highlights video below.

Twitter user @toptargets: “At the time I thought this was a superb save by Reice Charles Cook for Welling but having watched it back it was actually World Class!!!!”

A controversial first-half penalty proved to be the difference, despite Welling’s efforts to find a leveller, it would be a third straight league defeat for the Wings.

Chelmsford City: Gray, James, Winfield, Francis, Carruthers (Alfa 69), Barbrook (Ochieng 54), Jenkins, Ruff (Jones 78), Hockey, Watts, Castiglione.

Subs (not used): Brookes, Wordsworth.

Booked: Barbrook 34 (foul on Papadopoulos), Ochieng 66 (foul on Roscrow)

Goal: Carruthers (pen) 25

Welling United: Charles-Cook, Lema, Byrd, Ellul, Green, Grant, Bramble (J Johnson 76), Odusanya, Papadopoulos, Kamara, Roscrow (Muwonge 83).

Subs (not used): Curran, Burchell, Bridgeman.

Booked: Ellul 25 (dissent), Roscrow 38 (obstruction)

Referee: Morgan Conn

Interviewer: Danny a narrow defeat here against a side gunning for promotion a controversial goal to decide it as well from the penalty spot, how do you feel after that one?

Bloor: Gutted to be honest with you, I thought the boys were absolutely magnificent tonight we’ve made some changes both on and off the pitch and you know you’re coming away from Melbourne Park talking about a real what should I say to try and not get myself in a bit of trouble a decision by the referee that’s changed the course of the game in my opinion

Interviewer: Did you have a view on it obviously we haven’t had a chance of look at it back from up in the Press Box

Bloor: It looked quite innocuous didn’t look like there was much in it it looked really soft didn’t it you know it looked a soft decision um you know it’s the third time we’ve had this referee this season but yeah looked to soft penalty but let’s be positive tonight very much you know big Joe coming in for his debut at the back I thought the back four were really good, the young lad we’ve signed on loan from Oxford United he came on and I thought he had an impact as well, David Kamara was absolutely magnificent again you know we’ve really got to take these positives you know coming to a side of a fourth in the league and as you say gunning for promotion we’ve got to take the positives and make sure we pick up some points at home

Interviewer: So just bit by bit there’s a few changes obviously Josh Johnson as you said coming in looked good coming off the bench uh Joey Ellul as well making his first start today but is that the first signs especially in the second half there where things were coming together a little bit more than they have perhaps in recent weeks and and showed some good signs there without creating too much clear cut but are those the first building blocks do you see over these next few weeks

Bloor: Yeah listen we’re now training on a Tuesday and Thursday morning obviously that affects some people both on and off the pitch but it’s going to take you know a tad of time but there’s enough positives from tonight against a side like Chelmsford for us to look onwards upwards and forwards

Interviewer: I mean have you set yourself any targets over these obviously as the games go down you know that that gives less less points to get on the board have you set yourself a target for amount of wins amount of points that we need to do to make sure that that we can stay up or is it very much just a case of taking each game as it comes

Bloor: Obviously you know I think we just have to worry about the next game then the next game people got carried away with targets if you were making a targets come to a side fourth in the league on a cold Monday evening you perhaps wouldn’t have given yourself much of an opportunity but I felt we were more than matched them I thought in the second half we were the best side and uh it’s disappointing but very much onwards upwards and forwards we train hard on Thursday morning then we travel to Hemel on Saturday then it’s Hampton next Tuesday then it’s Taunton at home it’s really rocking and rolling but there was plenty of positives this evening for has to be encouraged

Interviewer: We know there’s been a couple of changes off the pitch as far as the coaching staff goes over the last couple of weeks what can you tell us about about those changes and how we’ve had a look at how to fix those

Bloor: Yeah well obviously my assistant manager Ben Austin he’s departed, so he can’t do the Tuesday and Thursday morning, Nick Arnold’s departed as well and I let’s make this categorically clear I ask Garry Fiore to be my new assistant manager he’s coming in to help out Garry’s you know I’ve had a fantastic relationship with Garry from the first moment I met him Joe you now a player coach Teddy, he’s had to step up as well Reece was with us tonight it’s all hands to the pump and let’s hope that’s the best for Welling United Football Club

Interviewer: Back on the road again on Saturday Hemel, again is there is it just about keeping our heads up staying positive and taking what we saw a little bit today into that and hoping to start getting some points on the board

Bloor: 100% very much so we go to Hemel encouraged and we know it’s a tough game it’s a 4G pitch so be no excuses about the pitch and it’s a game we’re looking forward to
