Tribute will honour lives of Stones members who lost their lives in two World Wars
Wealdstone will remember the members of the club who died in the two World Wars with a special memorial when they host Bath City in the Vanarama National League South on Saturday.
A new memorial will be presented to Stones ahead of Saturday’s clash against the Romans at Grosvenor Vale.
Wealdstone were initially presented with a memorial stone at their former Lower Mead home in 1922, commemorating those who died in the Great War.
The stone was added to following World War II, but was left forever when the Lower Mead site was demolished in the early 1990s.
With the west London club remaining at Grosvenor Vale for the foreseeable future, Wealdstone will be presented with a new memorial stone ahead of Saturday’s game.
Stones will also pay tribute to the club’s members who lost their lives in the World Wars by playing in a replica of the club kit worn in 1919.
