4:37pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Local Sport
Wealdstone extended their unbeaten start to the season after back-to-back wins over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Gordon Bartlett’s side followed up a 2-0 win at Harrow Borough on Saturday by beating Enfield Town 4-1 at home on Monday.
The Stones took the lead against rivals Boro when the ball fell invitingly for Chris Moore and he rifled home the opener.
Wealdstone continued their strong record against the Reds by sealing the win with a header from substitute Reece Grant.
Bartlett’s side completed an excellent week with victory over the Towners on Monday.
But it was far from comfortable as the hosts trailed 1-0 to Enfield’s early goal.
The match changed on the introduction of veteran winger Glen Little as Wealdstone turned the contest around.
The Stones grabbed an equaliser through Moore’s header and snatched a half-time lead when Chris Wild put the ball past his own keeper.
Wealdstone added their third goal after a flowing team move resulted in Scott McGleish finding the net.
The home side sealed the three points through Tom Pett’s header.
Wealdstone’s victory has sent them into fifth place in the table as they look to mount a promotion challenge after losing in the play-offs over the last two years.
Bartlett, whose side host Cray on Saturday, bolstered his squad by signing 21-year-old defender Josh Hill while they have handed contracts to Jerome Akimo and forward Reece Grant.
