Wealdstone manager Stuart Maynard is focused on the big summer ahead as they begin recruiting for the 2021/22 season despite having one match left. 

The Stones will make the trip to fellow strugglers Woking on Saturday as they look to end the season on a brighter note. 

But the boss is already focused on next season and making sure they’re as prepared as they can be after a difficult season in the National League. 

“Next season we all need to be in it together. It’s not going to be easy. It’s still going to be difficult as it’s a really tough league,” Maynard said. 

“Us and Dover Athletic are probably going to be the only teams that will be part-time, so that will be tough, and we know we’ve got a big summer ahead of us to make sure that we get the recruitment right. 

“The work has started and it started over a month ago. We’re working hard tirelessly behind the scenes to get it right and to make sure we try staying in the division next season.”

The former assistant was also keen to thank the supporters for their hard work at the club despite not being able to attend matches due to the ongoing pandemic but hopes they can enjoy exciting times next season. 

“As a management team we’re really excited about what we hope to be able to produce on the pitch, just get behind us, keep supporting us which we know you will.

“The fans off the pitch have been brilliant this year, volunteers doing the stand, and so much hard work has gone in off the pitch. 

“It’s been such a shame for us to get to the highest level of non league football and not have our fans with us both home and away. 

“It’s something that we’re really looking forward to next season.” 

Wealdstone have already announced the signing of forward Craig Fasanmade but plenty more announcements are expected after the final weekend of the campaign.
