During the week Gordon, Fingers and I attended the open evening at Stanmore College for our scholarship scheme. The room was full of people hoping to sign up. As well as needing the requisite grades at GCSE level the boys will have the opportunity to prove themselves in the football trials coming up in early April. Maybe the next Jermaine (or even the next Ben Clark) was sitting in that room. Good also to see Carl Martin working as one of the tutors on the course, James Duncan is another.
Two other players who have benefited from a Wealdstone education are Liam Henderson and Dale Bennett, both of whom have been given a pro contract at Watford, following their spell with us. Following the success with John Joe and Theo las year we are delighted that the relationship has worked for both clubs again this season.
