Stones return to league action when they host the Crusaders this weekend

Wealdstone will honour the servicemen and woman who gave their lives in the two World Wars and other conflicts around the world when they host Hungerford Town in the National League South on Saturday.

Ahead of the game at Grosvenor Vale, there will be a wreath-laying ceremony, before a bugler plays The Last Post and a minute’s silence is held.

Across the two World Wars, 16 Stones players sadly lost their lives and the club will remember them on Saturday.

In addition, all military personnel will be admitted to the match at the concessionary rate of £9, instead of the usual £13, on production of their ID.

With no Premier League or Championship fixtures this weekend, it is hoped there will be a bumper crowd in attendance at Grosvenor Vale.

Current season ticket holders of all clubs in the top two divisions of English football are also offered a reduced admission price by showing their ticket at the gate.

The game itself sees current Wealdstone boss Bobby Wilkinson face his former club for the first time since leaving Hungerford in August.

Stones were last in action in the league two weeks ago when they beat Welling United, though did progress past Hayes & Yeading United in the second round of the Middlesex Senior Challenge Cup on Tuesday.

Ryan Sellers and Abobaker Eisa were on target in the win, as was debutant Shaun Okojie, who has joined on a month’s loan from Aldershot Town of the National League South.

While striker Okojie has arrived on loan at Grosvenor Vale, forward Elliot Benyon has temporarily departed.

The former Torquay United forward has joined Bostik Premier side Enfield Town on a 28-day loan in a bid to regain match fitness after recently overcoming an injury.

While Benyon is out on loan, the club will look for Okojie to fire them to wins in the league.

And with Wilkinson having also been named manager of the month for October, he will hope to avoid the dreaded curse when Wealdstone host his old club.
