Stu's Stones Want To Make History After New Deal Done

Stuart Maynard wants to take Wealdstone to new heights after agreeing a new two-year contract to remain at Grosvenor Vale.

He and number two Matt Saunders have committed their futures to the club and are dreaming of a push for the EFL.

Despite interest from elsewhere they’re staying put and building towards kick-off with their opener against York City little over a week away.

The Stones had a season to remember in their third season in the National League, recording a 13th placed finish - their highest league position for 36 years.

Manager Maynard wants more and says he didn’t think twice about signing a new contract.

He told the club’s website: "We're both absolutely delighted especially after the season we've just had as a club.

“We said it was a long-term project when we started and we still both see it as that, we still want to keep progressing but this year will be tougher than ever.

"But we know we have a young, hungry squad who are dedicated and they put in the extra hours that are needed for success at this level. We're really excited and can't wait to get going for the new season.

"There's loads going on behind the scenes here that me and Matty are really excited about, we believe in what we do and we believe in what the club and the board are doing."

Stones chairman Rory Fitzgerald said: “Their dedication, passion and tactical acumen have been instrumental in propelling the team forward, and I have every confidence they will continue to lead us to greater heights.

“Despite strong interest from other clubs, they have chosen to commit once again to the Stones.

"I'm proud to have such outstanding individuals at the helm, and we eagerly anticipate the bright future that lies ahead for Wealdstone FC.”
