Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

WEALDSTONE have an­nounced the sign­ing of mid­fielder God­frey Poku from Na­tional League South ri­vals Ox­ford City.

Poku has a wealth of non-league ex­pe­ri­ence and made 79 league ap­pear­ances for Ox­ford City in two sea­sons, as well as be­ing an in­flu­en­tial mem­ber of their gi­ant-killing FA Cup side that beat Colch­ester United last year.

He has played in the Foot­ball League with Mans­field Town and has also rep­re­sented Lu­ton Town, South­port, St Al­bans City, Al­fre­ton Town, AFC Telford United, Wok­ing and Ha­vant & Water­looville. Mean­while, leav­ing the Stones is de­fender Ian Gayle, who joined from Welling United in Jan­uary and made 12 ap­pear­ances, scor­ing once.

Wealdstone have had a very ac­tive trans­fer mar­ket so far this sum­mer, with Poku be­com­ing man­ager Bobby Wilkin­son’s 13th sum­mer sign­ing and Gayle be­com­ing the 17th player to de­part.

Wealdstone have an­nounced a fur­ther pre-sea­son friendly to add to their warm-up sched­ule for the 2018/19 Na­tional League South cam­paign. Brom­ley will travel to Grosvenor Vale on Satur­day July 28 at 3pm.

Na­tional League side Brom­ley will pro­vide a strong test for the new-look Stones, hav­ing had an ex­cel­lent cam­paign in the higher di­vi­sion last term and reach­ing the fi­nal of the FA Tro­phy, nar­rowly miss­ing out on penal­ties to Brack­ley Town at Wem­b­ley Sta­dium.

This match will be com­bined with a spe­cial ‘meet the play­ers day’ at the Vale. Bobby Wilkin­son and his man­age­ment team are invit­ing ev­ery­one to visit the club to watch an open train­ing ses­sion be­tween 12.30 and 2pm and then meet all the play­ers be­fore and af­ter the match.
