Welling United sign Tom Richards

Walton Casuals defender Tom Richards has earned a move to National League South side Welling United after just three weeks at Church Road.

The 22-year-old made four appearances for the Stags after completing a move from Austrian club FC Kitzb├╝hel, marking his debut with a 3-2 win over Sittingbourne on 28 January.

Richards has also appeared for Fulham U21s, AFC Wimbledon and Aldershot Town in previous seasons.

The Wings currently sit in 15th in the National League South, two leagues above the Casuals, and name former player Christian Nanetti in their ranks.

We thank Tom for his efforts and wish him the very best at his new club.
