Wealdstone have completed the signings of Tom Hamblin and Jonny
8:00am Friday 27th September 2013 in Sport
Wealdstone have added to their squad with the signings of defender Tom Hamblin and striker Jonny Wright.
Hamblin, 26, has been a regular fixture in the Tigers line up, signing for them in 2006 while Wright has been at Workington for six years but has recently moved down to London.
Stones Manager Gordon Bartlett moved quickly to sign the player on Ryman forms after Wright watched the recent FA Cup match against Kings Langley.
Commenting on the signing off Hamblin, Wealdstone Manager Gordon Bartlett said: "Tom is a big strong defender with a wealth of experience and will be another important acquisition to the squad in our quest to build on our solid start to the season.
"His manager Dave Mehew called me recently to say he was moving to our area with his job and I watched him against league leaders Brackley in the Conference North last week.
"Tom cast his eye over us against Hornchurch and Thamesmead and was impressed enough to agree to sign, although he is not available till next week due to work commitments."
On the pitch, Wealdstone are fourth in the Ryman Premier after taking four points from games against Lewes and Thamesmead Town.
The Stones, who signed striker Jonny Wright and Tom Hamblin this week, threw away a two-goal lead in the final eight minutes against Lewes to draw 2-2.
On Saturday Wealdstone overcame Thamesmead 2-0 thanks to a Chris Moore brace.
