Management Team

 

Bobby Wilkinson   – Manager

Bobby Wilkinson took over as Wealdstone FC Manager in August 2017

Bobby has enjoyed a long period of highly successful management with Vanarama National League South rivals Hungerford Town and comes to Wealdstone with an impressive track record.

Under Wilkinson the Crusaders saw seven seasons of continued success and improvement since his appointment as manager in the 2009-10 season with a remarkable 70% win ratio over that period.

He led the club to promotion through the Southern League South & West play-offs in 2012-13 and Hungerford then made it to Step 2 for the first time in their history after winning the Southern Premier play-offs two seasons ago. Last season, their first in the NLS, Wilkinson achieved a highly creditable 6th place only missing out on the play-offs due to ground grading requirements.

Wilkinson, 40, has also added two quarter final placings in the FA Trophy to his list of achievements with Hungerford. With team spirit and togetherness always a top priority for him, Bobby has had players sign for Oxford United, Bristol City and Bristol Rovers during his tenure.

The former Reading youth player continues to have very strong ties with the Sky Bet Championship club. Wilkinson has worked under Brendan Rodgers, Brian McDermott and Mark McGhee, and still works behind the scenes with Jaap Stam the current Royals Manager and has excellent contacts in the wider football world.
