WEALDSTONE United FC man­ager Gor­don Bartlett un­veiled two new sign­ings as the squad re­ported back for pre-sea­son train­ing.

The Stones boss has re­in­forced his squad with the ad­di­tion of Ben Cril­ley and Abobaker Eisa.

Cril­ley is step­ping up a divi­sion from South­ern Premier neigh­bours Che­sham United and wide mid- fielder Eisa will be climb­ing two rungs of the non-league lad­der af­ter sign­ing from South­ern 1 Mid­lands out­fit Uxbridge.

“It was good to be back and it was a very pos­i­tive ses­sion with a great work ethic all round from the lads,” said Bartlett as train­ing started.

The club’s open­ing pre-sea­son fix­ture is against Na­tional League South ri­vals Hemel Hemp­stead Town on Satur­day (ko noon) and Spar­tan South Mid­lands Premier out­fit Wel­wyn Gar­den City on Tues­day (ko 7.45pm). Both fix­tures will be played on the 3G pitch at Bea­cons­field Road.

Hayes & Yead­ing United man­agers Paul Hughes and Ritchie Han­lon have brought in seven new faces. At­tack­ing op­tions have been bol­stered by the ar­rival of Ryan Ram­sey, from Il­ford FC; Lewis Put­man af­ter a spell on loan with United last sea­son; and Ed­die Smith, who spent most of the last cam­paign with Farn­bor­ough.

Winger Manny Duku has signed from South­ern Premier Ban­bury Town, mid­fielder Gurkan Goku has joined from Slough Town and the de­fence has been strength­ened af­ter a raid on Bar­ton Rovers for Danny Hutchins and Tom Smith.

Wealdstone FC are mourn­ing the death of sup­porter Bob Thomp­son, whose fu­neral will be held at Break­s­pear Cre­ma­to­rium in Ruis­lip at 11.15am this morn­ing, with a cel­e­bra­tion of his life to fol­low at Hayes and Har­ling­ton Con­ser­va­tive Club, in Church Road.

Uxbridge’s Ryan Craw­ford, left, tries to make head­way against Isaac Cham­ber­lain Lawrence Lustig/ Match­room UXBRIDGE fighter Ryan Craw­ford was un­able to stop Brix­ton’s Isaac Cham­ber­lain at the O2 on Satur­day as the south Lon­doner stayed on track for his grudge match with Lawrence Okolie.

Craw­ford was beaten in a stop­page de­feat at the Lon­don venue on the Sum­mer­time Brawl un­der­card for the Frank Buglioni-Ricky Sum­mers fight.

The Brix­ton cruis­er­weight un­leashed a bar­rage of punches on Craw­ford in the sec­ond round, a crunch­ing right up­per­cut off the ropes drop­ping ‘Ryno’ to the floor be­fore he was even­tu­ally counted out by the ref­eree.
