Wealdstone have this week announced that Bobby Wilkinson, the club’s manager, has left them with immediate effect.
He was in charge with the National League South since August 2017 and managed to get the Stones to the playoffs this season after finishing 11th last year.
However after taking a surprise 2-0 lead at Woking, Wealdstone then went on to lose 3-2 and miss out on a final with Welling United who also won with the same scoreline against Chelmsford City.
Prior to taking up the role at the club, he was also manager of Hungerford Town, who he won two promotions with and took them to a sixth-place finish in the team’s first season in the National League South.
