Stones buoyed by two cups wins this past week

Wealdstone are back in National League action on Saturday when they visit Bognor Regis Town off the back of two cup wins this week.

On Tuesday, a goal from Eddie Oshodi saw Stones progress past divisional rivals Hampton & Richmond Borough to reach the Middlesex Senior Cup semi-finals.

That followed a 1-0 success at home to Hereford of the Evo-Stik Southern Premier in the second round of the FA Trophy.

Ricky Wellard’s 26th-minute strike proved enough for Bobby Wilkinson’s men to tame the Bulls and reach the third round, picking up £7,000 in prize money.

And boss Bobby Wilkinson revealed his satisfaction at seeing his team progress past Hereford.

“I’m so proud of the players and everyone at the club. I’m proud of the chairman, who came in this week and is loving what we’re doing here,” he told the club website.

“He reassured us to keep building for the future and make sure everyone enjoys their football.

“The last two weeks, we haven’t been enjoying our football, so we said to the boys to just go and play.

“We knew if we went 1-0 up, we were going to have to defend against a great side. In the last 15 minutes, Hereford were coming at us, but I’m proud of everyone at the football club.

“My management team this week have been absolutely outstanding. The players and my management teams deserves all the credit.”

Wealdstone club will be at home again in the next round, hosting Warrington Town of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier, who knocked out Ebbsfleet United of the National league.

The tie will take place at Grosvenor Vale on February 3, with the winners earning £8,000 in prize money and a place in the quarter-finals.

Aside from matches, Stones have been busy in the transfer market in the past week, signing two new players.

Winger Iffy Allen has joined on a 28-day loan from Bromley of the National League, while centre-back Ian Gayle, who came through the Dagenham & Redbridge academy, has arrived from Welling United.
