Allen Batsford RIP

Wealdstone Football Club wishes to extend it’s heartfelt condolences to the family of our former manager Allen Batsford who sadly passed away a few days ago. Allen was instrumental in laying down the foundations of this club’s hugely successful period in the eighties; he was our manager from 1980 to 1983 and his tenure included the winning of every league trophy on offer during the memorable 1981/82 Southern League season.

The club is currently in contact with AFC Wimbledon – where Allen achieved iconic status with the former Wimbledon club taking them into the football league – regarding funeral arrangements.
