Ex-Hammer lands new club

Former Academy player Callum McNaughton has joined Welling United on a permanent basis.

Now 22, McNaughton spent six years under Tony Carr's wing at Chadwell Heath during which he made just one appearance for the first team - a 2011 Carling Cup defeat to Aldershot, in which he was sent off just two minutes into the second half.

The Harlow-born defender left West Ham in January 2012 to join AFC Wimbledon, for whom he made 19 appearances before moving to Kingstonian little more than a year later.

6'4" McNaughton remained at Kingstonian for the remainder of the 2012/13 season before being snapped up on a free transfer by Skrill South outfit Bishop's Stortford with whom he spent the entirety of last season before moving to Welling.

Wings manager Jamie Day told wellingunited.com: "Callum is a die-hard central defender who puts his body on the line but he can also play and pass as well. He knows this level and what is expected of him.

"We watched him for a fair chunk of last season so we know all about him. We see him as a key defender this season. He is still young so Im delighted that weve got him and can help him develop during the coming season."
