Stones youngster will hope to impress and earn move to the Owls

Wealdstone youngster Ciaron Brown is set to go on trial this week with Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday.

Since arriving at Stones from Bedfont Sports at the start of last season, Brown has rapidly progressed and made a smooth step up to the National League South.

The 20-year-old is most comfortable at centre-back, but is equally at ease playing at left-back, where he spent most of his early time for Wealdstone.

An ever growing list of scouts from around the professional ranks queuing up at Grosevenor Vale to check Brown’s progress, which has culminated in a trial with the Owls.

“We have a great pedigree of bringing young players on and moving them up to the pro ranks and Ciaron is more than capable of making the step up having made consistent progress,” said Stones boss Gordon Bartlett.

“I’m sure that he will do well in whatever the future holds and we will never hold a player back.”
