NEW Hybrid Operating Model and New Training Base for this season

The club are pleased to announce a significant shift in our training approach for the 2024/25 season.

The first team will be adopting a hybrid operating model, enhancing our commitment to excellence and professional development.


Under the new model, the players will train on Monday mornings, Tuesday mornings, and Thursday evenings, a schedule that will ensure greater contact time with the squad for our new management team, Matt Taylor and Paul Hughes.


In tandem with this strategic move, we are delighted to confirm that Brunel University Sports Park in Uxbridge will become our first team’s new training base. This state-of-the-art facility is poised to provide an elite training environment, perfectly suited to the ambitions of our club.


The Sports Park boasts a range of top-tier amenities, including grass and 3G pitches, a fully equipped gym, and on-site catering facilities. These resources will support our players' physical and nutritional needs, ensuring they are in peak condition throughout the season. It has successfully hosted a large number of our Academy students and we are excited to be able to combine our First Team and so many of our young players together on one site. 


"This hybrid operating model and our new base at Brunel University represent significant strides forward for the club," said Chairman Rory Fitzgerald.

"We are dedicated to providing our players with the best possible environment to thrive. Matt and Paul bring a wealth of experience and expertise, and we are confident that this new structure will yield positive results on and off the pitch. The change is expected to foster improved performance, cohesion, and readiness for the challenges of the new season."

Said Manager Matt Taylor. "We're excited about the opportunities this hybrid model offers. It allows us more consistent interaction with the squad, enabling us to implement our strategies more effectively. The facilities at Brunel University Sports Park are exceptional, and we're looking forward to utilising them to their full potential."


Added Paul Hughes: "This is an exciting time for Wealdstone FC. The increased training sessions will help us build a stronger, more effective team. The move to Brunel University Sports Park is a significant upgrade that aligns with our goals for the club."
