Wealdstone are to honour former goalkeeper Jonathan North with a testimonial next month at Grosvenor Vale.

North left the club at the start of 2020 after providing a decade of service to Stones, but was unable to have the game sooner due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The match will be played between a Wealdstone XI and a Watford XI, with North joining Stones from the Premier League club back in 2010.

He went on to make 393 appearances in total for the club and was part of the side that gained promotion from the Isthmian League to the National League South.

He also won the Jock Law Trophy for Supporter’s Player of the Season three times during his time with the club.

North currently plays for Slough Town following his departure, but is nonetheless looking forward to playing one more time for Wealdstone in the special fixture.

He told the Stones website it was a chance to say a proper goodbye to the club and an “excellent” occasion.

“I am delighted and honoured that the club are giving me a testimonial,” said North.

“I have so many good memories from my ten years at Wealdstone and hopefully this can be another one to add to that list.

“This wouldn’t have been possible without all the players that I’ve played with and staff I have played under and all the fans who have supported me throughout.

“This will hopefully be a special day and a chance to say a proper goodbye to everyone who has helped me along the way.

“Can’t wait to see some familiar faces again and hopefully be a day to reminisce about the good days and look forward to future as well for the club.

“I hope to see you all down there on what will be an excellent day.”

The match will take place at Grosvenor Vale on Sunday, August 8 at 1pm.
