First of all someone leaving. Yesterday we agreed to transfer Peter Dean to Bishop’s Stortford. This is a good opportunity for Peter at a higher level and we were satisfied with the terms agreed with Stortford. Peter did particularly well for us in the first 2-3 months of last year and we thank him for all his efforts for us and wish him all the best for the future.
Onto someone not leaving…yet. Following the Watford game, Aidy Boothroyd told Gordon how impressed he was with Graeme Montgomery and he asked to have Graeme for training with Watford for a few days, which he is doing now. This is a great opportunity for Graeme, we know that he is full of ability and let’s hope these few days go well – at least for his benefit.
Now someone staying. Delighted that Alan Massey is the latest player to sign a contract and commit himself to the Club. I have noticed how many people have picked Alan out as being the player they are delighted to see this year and with Carl and James Gray I think we have some excellent options at centre back.
Finally it seems I am no longer the only person connected with Wealdstone FC to have his own blog. Nick Salapatas who made such an impressive entrance at Hendon on the last day of last season has his own excellent blog here and unlike me he seems to have mastered video as well. Nick is another player we are hoping for big things from this year – and now we can read about what he thinks about it as well.
