Matt Is Taylor Made For Stones As New Boss Named

Matt Taylor has been selected as the man to take Wealdstone forward.

The club vowed to leave “no stone unturned” as they looked to get their next appointment right and their search is over.

They have picked Taylor, the former Swindon Town, Walsall and Shrewsbury Town boss, with Paul Hughes named his assistant.

Earlier today Sam Cox took to social media to say he hadn’t been offered the opportunity, despite keeping the club in the division thanks to a fantastic final few weeks.

"I am excited to join Wealdstone," said Taylor after he was unveiled tonight. "We have a great opportunity to build something special here, and I'm looking forward to the challenge."

The 42-year-old played Premier League football for West Ham, Portsmouth and Bolton Wanderers.

“We are thrilled to welcome Matt to Wealdstone," chairman Rory Fitzgerald said following Friday’s official announcement.

"His experience at the top levels of football, both as a player and a coach, will be invaluable as we strive to develop our club to achieve our long-term ambitions.

“Matt's vision for the team, his clear principles for how he wants us to play and his track record of developing young talent are exactly what we need.”
