TRANSFER NEWS | Stevens sold to Boreham Wood


Wealdstone defender Connor Stevens has joined National League rivals Boreham Wood for an undisclosed fee.


The 24 year-old defender has spent four seasons with the Stones after joining back in 2018 following his release from Watford's academy.


Connor's talent immediately shone through, helping the Stones get to the National League South play-offs in his first season and then the National League South title in his second season, forming a formidable partnership at the back with Stones captain Jerome Okimo.


Injury thwarted his playing time last season, playing just one league game in the final day victory over Woking, with injury also restricting his appearances to just nine this season.


In his time at the Stones the defender made 90 appearances, scoring nine times with his last goal an equaliser in Wealdstone's 2-1 win over Dover Athletic in January.


Speaking on his departure, Stones boss Stuart Maynard said: "Connor only had a few months left on his contract and once he had expressed a desire to leave, it was about getting the best deal for the club and I think the chairman [Rory Fitzgerald] has achieved that with a decent fee for the player.


"We also feel in Jack Cook, Jerome Okimo, Nikola Tavares, Connor McAvoy and Jaydn Mundle-Smith that we have plenty of cover at centre-half. They helped keep seven of the eight clean sheets this season whilst Connor was out injured. We of course wish Connor better luck with injury at his new club.


"I'd like to personally thank Connor for his big role in helping get us promoted to the National League in a season that will never be forgotten. He'll always be welcome back at The Vale."


We wish Connor all the best with this new path on his journey and as a club thank him for his efforts over the past four seasons.
