Jomo departs

Disappointed to have to report that Jomo Faal Thomas has signed for Conference South side St Albans City.

St Albans were one of many clubs who have watched Jomo in recent weeks.  They recently put in a 7 day notice of approach for the player although after we spent some time talking with the player and his agent over the last few days we believed that Jomo would stay with us and not go to St Albans but now he has decided that he wants to go – a decision we have to accept.

I want to make it clear that when a player is not on a contract we are fairly powerless in these circumstances.  We would have happily put Jomo on a contract but the player would not sign one.  We also felt that this was not necessarily the right move for him (no disrespect to St Albans) as he has had football league clubs watching him and keen to take him on trial but he and his agent eventually decided differently – and interestingly (for once) money doesn’t seem to be the decider.

Jomo is only 19 and has a bright future in the game.  He has made a positive impression on all of us this season, we thank him for his contribution and we wish him every success in the future.

Now no longer with my Wealdstone FC obligations so freed up to enjoy more horse racing. Aiming to blog daily on something that catches my eye, maybe the big race that day, maybe racing news, maybe something else. Please join the conversations
