Wealdstone FC have today announced that winger Graeme Montgomery has signed an agreement to be transferred to Coca Cola League Two Club, Dagenham & Redbridge FC. The talented former England School Boy has been trialling with several football league clubs since pre-season and was recently invited for training with the East London Club. Montgomery,20, also played in a squad match in which he scored and has clearly impressed Daggers manager John Still.

The agreement between Wealdstone and the Daggers will take effect when the January transfer window opens and will involve an undisclosed fee and other potential payments based on appearances and progress . Montgomery will remain with the Stones until the end of December.

Stones manager, Gordon Bartlett, said: ‘ This is an excellent opportunity for Monty and good for the club to see yet another of our youngsters progressing into the professional ranks. I am delighted for him as he has worked extremely hard during his various trials and his undoubted talent has shone through especially in our recent 5 match winning run. I know that Graeme will relish this chance to progress his footballing career at a higher level and follow in the footsteps of recent young Stones like Jermaine Beckford and Marvin Morgan. With an average age of 21 in our 1st team squad, I am sure he wont be last of this current group of players to progress into full time football in the near future. He is a great lad and everyone at Wealdstone wishes him all the best and we thank him for all his efforts over the last three seasons.’
