Gordon Bartlett signs new Stones contract

Wealdstone Football Club is delighted to announce that their Manager, Gordon Bartlett, has signed a new contract that will commit him to the club he joined in 1995 until the end of next season, 2010/11 campaign.

Gordon’s signing of a new contract also coincides with his upcoming 1000th game in charge at Wealdstone which is a truly remarkable milestone for the UEFA ‘A’ licence holder.

Of his new contract Gordon said: ‘I believe we are progressing in the right way both on and off the park and I am pleased to commit myself to trying to bring Wealdstone a stable and successful long term future. Despite our financial limitations and being homeless for so many years, we have continued to climb back up the pyramid and I have shared some great experiences over my 15 years at the ‘Stones’. We have come a long way since our arrival at our new home at ‘The Vale’, have amazing support, a quality young playing squad and I am surrounded by an excellent management team, so I would be mad not to want to continue being at the helm. With more hard work from everyone involved, I honestly believe success at Wealdstone is not too far away’

Wealdstone Chairman, Howard Krais said: ‘We are all absolutely delighted that Gordon has committed himself to the club in this way and allows us to solidly build on our on-field progress and the club’s development strategy; Gordon is key and central to our plans’
