We should be keeping players like Freddie not letting then go with our blessing Attic ?

If rumour true its only Maidenhead, we should match them and not be rolled over....Ambition!!

Charlie ! " You need to speak to Uncle Albert". ......

"Only Maidenhead" indeed, but I'm struggling to find an aspect at which we could "match them".
Club and team management? Support? Location? Finance? Reality is, we're not in the same league.

I think we match them in location.

They're a division higher but potentially our support is as good as theirs.

The rest I agree.

Shock, horror a player looks after number 1.

There are some out there who just never learn.

There's a lot of similarities between the two clubs to be fair. Maidenhead are probably the 'next stage' of which Wealdstone should aspire to. With the right choice of manager and a competitive budget I see no reason why we can't get promoted out of this league. Of course the real challenge then becomes staying in the Conference National.

I still wouldn't hold it against any player who leaves us to step up a level. Its those who simply follow a manager about or decent players who join a less aspiring club than ours that raise questions.

I'd say that Maidenhead are light years ahead of us. Their average attendance has increased at least four fold over about five years; huge amount of youth now attend as they embraced them rather the pushed them away; gone up a level and survived; have continued to develop their home ground, with two new stands; own it outright in the middle of the town; appointed a tried and tested manager; and, probably most importantly, have a millionaire chairman who has invested into the club in a sustained and sustainable manner. We have a lot to learn from them.

If you remember that last game of the season a few years ago when we invaded York Road, who would have thought that it was them who would forge ahead rather than us.

Well, its Wealdstone.

Is anyone surprised really?

Hardly a big surprise, but Freddie Grant goes to Maidenhead.

Good luck to him. No problem with any player leaving us to play at a higher level.

Seems the conjecture mill is rife with potential new signings who will come with the alleged new manager!!!
