Wealdstone have completed their fourth signing of pre-season, while also tying down two players to new deals, as they begin preparations for their life in the fifth tier of English football.

Following their promotion to the National League as National League South champions, Stones have ramped up their efforts to ensure next season is a success and the addition of defender Jack Cawley is a further signal of intent.

Cawley joins Dan Wishart, Charlee Hughes and Danny Parish as a new arrivals at the club after he signed from Concord Rangers.

The 27-year-old centre-back played against Wealdstone last season in the FA Trophy and is the son of Peter Cawley who was part of the Wimbledon squad to win the FA Cup back in 1988.

Speaking to the Stones’ website about his move, Cawley said: “It’s a club I know a lot about and played against last year, it’s a great team and I’m excited to join.”

Also committing their future to Wealdstone for the upcoming season are Jacob Mendy, and George McLennan, both of whom have signed new contracts with the club.

Mendy has agreed to stick around for two more years, while McLennan’s new deal is for one extra season.

Speaking after signing for another two campaigns, Mendy said: “This is what I wanted, I’m so delighted to have signed. I had a great time here last season and can’t wait to play here again [next season].”

McLennan said: “It’s a great opportunity [to play at Wealdstone] again, I really appreciate Dean [Brennan] giving me another chance.”

Stones boss Dean Brennan said on McLennan: “George is a top left-back, he is proven at National League level where he won the league with Cheltenham.

“He has worked really hard to get back fully fit from his injury last season.”
