Preview – Maidenhead Utd @ The Vale – Mon 26 Dec
The Directors, players and staff of Wealdstone Football Club wish all our volunteers, supporters and followers a happy, healthy and enjoyable Christmas.
We look forward to 2017 and hope that it brings our great fans everything you wish for, on and off the pitch.
The Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor John Hensley and the Mayoress, Mrs Diane Hensley, will be in attendance at the game as part of the Mayor’s 2016/17 Charitable Trust initiative, so make sure you bring plenty of loose change for the bucket collection.
Club organiser Carol Griffiths said: ‘We are delighted to be able to support the Mayor of Hillingdon’s charities at one of our biggest games of the season and to do it in such festive style. The charity appeal celebrates the theme ‘Journey through Life’. Christmas is about giving and being together, so let’s do both while watching some great football and enjoying the fabulous atmosphere Wealdstone FC are known for.
Also make sure you wear your Christmas jumper to the game as there will be an award for the best and worst on show!

In their last League outing they turned over Dartford 5-0 at York Road.
The Stones management team and squad will be looking to build on the recent up-turn in form which has seen a run of 6 games without defeat, including the two FA Trophy ties against the Magpies with the Stones edging the replay to set-up an attractive tie in the 2nd Round away at National League Southport on Saturday 14 January.
