WEALDSTONE FC has stated its intention to build and promote relations with junior football clubs by teaming up with Pinner United FC.
The youth football side, a holder of 'Charter Standard' status - the Football Association quality mark for youth football clubs - was formed in 1994 by former head coach, and now chairman, Dave Howes, and play in the very competitive Harrow Youth League.
It runs sides for players from six upwards and plays home matches in the Pinner/Ruislip Manor area.
As part of the agreement between the clubs Wealdstone will provide additional coaching to Pinner United as well as entitling each member of Pinner United to free entrance to Wealdstone's Ryman's Premier League matches and discounted admittance to their parents and coaches. Pinner United players are also invited to take part in match day activities at Wealdstone's home games, such as penalty shoot-outs.
There will be reciprocal arrangements in that the clubs' websites will link to each other and Pinner United news will also be carried in the Wealdstone match day programme. Wealdstone FC junior liaison manager Mark Lloyd hoped this would be a long and fruitful relationship.
