Wealdstone recorded a 2-0 success at home to Brentford B in their final pre-season friendly before the National League South campaign begins.

Ross Lafayette scored both goals for the Stones, putting them in a positive position before the season opener against Dartford.

After two Danny Green efforts were dealt with early on, Lafayette broke the deadlock on the 32nd minute when Green played the striker in down the right for him to finish across Jake Shepperd.

Wealdstone continued to create the better chances after the break and came closest through Billy Clifford when he had the ball flicked into his path by Lafayette, but substitute keeper Simon Andersson did well to deny him.

The Stones’ domination finally paid dividends in the 84th minute when they scored a second. Dennon Lewis beat his man down the left and played a perfect square ball inside to Lafayette, and he coolly finished to make it a comfortable win.

There have also been a number of new faces joining the Stones’ squad recently.

The newest of the additions is Michael Phillips, who signs after being awarded Maidstone United’s Player of the Season accolade during their National League campaign last season.

Midfielder Phillips began his career at the Crystal Palace academy and was the top scorer for their under-18s side in 2014/15, but he never made a senior appearance for the Eagles.

Also joining the squad in midfielder Matty Saunders, who became the club’s 14th signing of the summer last Friday.

After coming through the ranks at Fulham, Saunders has gone on to represent Lincoln City, Dagenham & Redbridge, Whitehawk, Dover Athletic, Hemel Hempstead Town and Aldershot Town.

Saunders has already made six appearances for the side in pre-season.
