On Tuesday evening Wealdstone confirmed that manager Dean Brennan has parted ways with the club.

In a brief statement published on their website, Stones placed on record a message of thanks to Brennan for all he had achieved with the club and said that his assistant Stuart Maynard would be taking over for this weekend’s FA Trophy game against Darlington.

Brennan had been with the club since last season, when he guided them to promotion from the National League South to the National League.

He leaves them 18th in the table, having endured a run of four consecutive league defeats, after taking them as high as the play off spots earlier in the season.

They are still active in the FA Trophy after beating Gloucester City 3-1 in round four.

The statement published by the club on Tuesday evening contained few details, including no reason for Brennan’s departure, but said fans could expect more information soon.

It reads: “The club wishes to share that as of this evening, Dean Brennan has left his position of first team manager at the club.

Stuart Maynard will take charge of the side for the FA Trophy game at Darlington on Saturday.

We wish to place on record our thanks for everything Dean has achieved in his time at the club and wish him every success in the future.

A fuller statement will be released in due course.”
