Official: Welling United sign Prince Adegoke on loan from Chelsea

Chelsea U18 goalkeeper Prince Adegoke is the latest to join the loan army, and the latest goalkeeper to do so by joining a non-league side in order to gain experience that simply cannot be taught at the Academy or in youth football.

As a footnote on Chelsea’s official website confirms, Adegoke will spend next season with Welling United in the National League South (i.e. sixth tier), competing with substitute Chelsea. last year, Sam Jackson (not the actor, presumably) now that last year’s starter, Jack Sims has sign with Braintree. Welling United finished one place and two points above the floor of their 21-team division last season, but luckily for them only the bottom club are relegated. (Welling was down the previous season, but they once again escaped the relationship as that season was declared null and void due to the pandemic.)

Adegoke was the main goalkeeper for Chelsea’s U18 Premier League campaign as well as our run to the FA Youth Cup semi-finals. The Farnborough-born big boy joined the club at Under-13 level, and this is his first loan spell.
