ANDREWS | "I feel better now"
Following a worrying end to the season, in which Corie Andrews collapsed in the final minutes of Wealdstone’s 3-0 win over Solihull Moors, fans were left wondering whether they would be seeing the 25-year-old back on the pitch again.
But after positive tests, everyone involved was delighted to hear positive news regarding the striker’s physical health!
“I was in a car accident before, I don’t think anyone knew, but I feel better now, I feel good,” said Corie. “The tests were alright, they said because I wasn’t out cold for more than a minute that it wasn’t too worrying.”
“I remember running down the line and the ref gave the wrong decision. I was walking and felt dizzy, then I just remember getting back up.”
The striker joined the club in January 2023 and showed exciting glimpses of what he can bring to the team, scoring three well-taken goals in his 17 appearances for the Stones. With half a season adapting to Stuart Maynard’s tactics now under his belt, we hope to see big things from the frontman throughout the next campaign.
“I’ve got my own personal targets but as long as the teams doing well then that’s the most important thing. I think I’m good at both (Being physical and being a poacher) and now with a full pre-season with the boys, hopefully I can offer more to the team.”
The Stones regrouped for their first pre-season training last week and spirits were high whilst the boys were put through their paces as they prepare to better their highest league finish in 37 years, after finishing 13th in the National League last season.
If you want to see Corie and the rest of the team in action, Wealdstone begin their pre-season with a trip to local side Rayners Lane at 3pm on Saturday 8th July.
