Former Watford trainee the latest to join Stones

Wealdstone manager Bobby Wilkinson has bolstered his defence with the signing of defender Connor Stevens.

The 20-year-old was formerly in the academy with Watford and spent time last season on loan at National League South rivals Oxford City.

However, the young centre-back will spend the next campaign turning out for Stones after moving to Grosvenor Vale on a permanent deal.

And Wealdstone boss Wilkinson is excited to see what the future holds for the new man in defence.

“Connor has done exceptionally well in preseason in a key area for us and the opportunity arose to sign him as we look to finalise the squad,” said the Stones manager.

Stevens and his new colleagues will head to Bournemouth this week to take part in a training camp.

Wilkinson hopes the weekend brings his squad closer together, both on and off the pitch, ahead of the start of the new league season on August 4.
