Gordon Bartlett has agreed to take on a new role at Wealdstone Football Club.

His newly created role will be broad ranging and will support the rapidly growing need for youth development, football in the community and other key football development areas to be fully defined and will tap into Gordon’s vast experience, knowledge, and contacts within the game.

This important new role will enable Gordon to focus his time and efforts away from first team activities and further announcements will be made in this regard in due course.

Wealdstone FC Chairman Peter Marsden said: “On behalf of the Board I would like to thank Gordon Bartlett for his 22 years at the helm of Wealdstone Football Club in which he has guided the club from the hirrd division of the Isthmian League to play-off spot contenders in National League South.

“Often working in trying conditions which would have confounded lesser managers Gordon has been pivotal in the club re-establishing itself as a force in the non-league game.

“He is quite simply a Wealdstone Legend.

“Having worked closely with Gordon for this last 12 months I have come to regard him as a good friend and I have seen at first hand his encyclopaedic knowledge, breadth of contacts and above all else his love of the game.

“In many ways, what Gordon does not know about football is not worth knowing.

“I am pretty confident that as the season develops (and as some of our players return from injury) under Gordon our form would have picked him quite nicely but such is the level of expectation at Wealdstone (as manifest in our average attendances now approaching the 1,000 mark including over 500 season ticket holders) that we need to be either in or close to the leading pack from the very start if we are to fulfil our destiny.

“Results drive almost everything that happens at a football club - the way we feel about ourselves and the way we are perceived by others. It drives our income streams and our ability to attract fresh investment.”

Manager announcement coming soon.
