Tom Pett moves to Stevenage
Wealdstone forward Tom Pett will be moving to League Two side Stevenage for an undisclosed fee, subject to medical. Tom has been the subject of much transfer speculation from Football League clubs throughout Stones Championship winning season but Stevenage have swooped to agree terms with Wealdstone and sign the hugely popular Player of the Season.
Tom, who linked up at The Vale in January 2012 from Potters Bar Town, becomes the latest in an ever growing list of young Wealdstone players to graduate to the professional ranks and everyone at Stones wishes him all the very best at his new club.
Wealdstone Manager Gordon Bartlett said “We are delighted for Tom and although we are naturally sorry to see him go, he thoroughly deserves this great opportunity. Tom joins the growing list of young talented Wealdstone players who have developed and moved on to either Conference Premier or Football League clubs in recent seasons. I believe it must be virtually one every season for the last ten years or so, which speaks volumes for our club and enhances our reputation of nurturing young talent. Tom leaves with our very best wishes for the future and a big thank you for his outstanding attitude and the superb example he has set during his three years at the club. We will not only miss Tom around the club, but also his family who have always supported him throughout his career. As Tom moves on to bigger and better things, we must now focus on our new challenge of the Conference South without him and try to find the next little gem to follow in his footsteps”
