Wealdstone boss Gordon Bartlett has pulled off his first major signing in the build up to the new season with the capture of former Fulham striker Rob Haworth.
Haworth, 32, who has agreed terms to join Stones, made 29 appearances for the Cottagers in a two year spell.
He then had a short spell at Millwall before dropping into non league with St Albans City, Dagenham and Redbridge, Hendon and Ebbsfleet, and last season he was at Margate.
Said Bartlett: "Rob's a big, strong, experienced striker who has an excellent attitude and is very much a team player.
"I've been after him since he left Fulham 10 years ago and we've spoken on and off every since."
The Haworth deal follows Bartlett's resigning of two key players from last season's squad in Ryan Ashe and Ben Clarke.
Tenacious midfielder Ashe, 28, who scooped all three top awards at Wealdstone's annual presentations, and pacey young defender Clarke, 18, have both signed contracts.
Bartlett has released Keita Karamoko, Andre Delisser and Jon Nichol.
Last season's loan players have returned to their respective clubs, and Stones have taken the decision not to use loan players this year.
Instead, Bartlett intends to give more opportunities to young players such as Jon Sonuga, Derek Quaye and Nick Salapatas.
Bartlett believes that the remarkable changes made at the club's new Grosvenor Vale home during the close season, due to the great efforts of supporters and officials in revitalising a previously dilapidated ground, are aiding him in his quest in securing new players.
He said: "The place is looking fantastic and it shows what a bit of tender loving care can do. All those who have worked hard on the ground have done a superb job, and I take my hat off to them.
"I've no doubt that their efforts have had an effect on bringing new players to the club."
