Stones have started new term well and head to Blues unbeaten in first two fixtures

Wealdstone face a tough trip in the Vanarama National League South on Saturday when they head to title favourites Billericay Town.

Stones have good memories of their most recent trip to the Blues, having won 5-2 in the Buildbase FA Trophy quarter-finals last season.

Bradley Bubb netted a hat-trick for Bobby Wilkinson’s men in that triumph, making his debut for the Grosvenor Vale outfit a memorable one.

The Grenada international is yet to register a goal this term, but that has not stopped Wealdstone from finding the net in their first two league games of the new campaign.

Stones were held to a 1-1 draw at Hungerford Town on Tuesday night, with David Pratt on target for the visitors.

Pratt was also among the scorers on Saturday as he netted twice in a 4-1 victory over Weston-super-Mare, with Joe White and Bradley Hudson-Odoi also finding the net.

Godfrey Poku made his debut for Wilkinson’s men in the win over Weston and collected the man-of-the-match honours.

And the summer signing was delighted with the way the Grosvenor Vale outfit had started the new term.

“We started very well and we knew if started the right way, we’d get ahead and we did,” he told the club website.

“The whole team did well from the start and that led us on to finishing the game well.

“We knew we had to press Weston from the get-go. We knew our roles and knew that if we got an early goal, we could kill the game off.

“I’m not fussed about being man of the match; I thought everyone was brilliant on Saturday.

“Everyone worked their socks off and you can see that we are a proper team now. We know our roles and we stick together.”

There has certainly been a good buzz around Wealdstone after collecting four points from their opening two league games of the new term.

If they can avoid defeat at a Billericay side containing the likes of Jamie O’Hara and Alfie Potter, that optimism will only grow further.

Stones are also in action on Monday when they host Woking.
