Watford starlet Luke O'Nien is hoping being under the tutelage of Wealdstone boss Gordon Bartlett will benefit his career in the way it did for Marvin Sordell and Britt Assombalonga.
Sordell is currently plying his trade in the Premier League after spending part of the 2008 season with the Stones, while Assombalonga is at Nottingham Forest, although has suffered a serious knee injury.
And the 20-year-old dynamic midfielder hopes Bartlett's guidance can have that same impact.
He said: “Those guys are doing brilliantly. Hopefully I can follow in their footsteps. I'll work hard week in week our and I can achieve what they have.
“Gordon is a great manager. I worked with him last season and this season. I'll always give my all for him, week in week out.
“I've loved every second of it. We've got a great bunch of lads, with a great manager and great fans. I'm loving playing for Wealdstone.”
O'Nien has made one appearance for the Hornets in his career and has played a lot of U21 football and he is grateful for the chance to ply his trade in the Conference South.
He explained: “It's completely different. I'm grateful for being given the chance here. I'm playing week in, week out and I love it down here.”
O'Nien added: “It was brilliant from back to front. Everyone put in a great shift and deserved the three points.
“Everyone drops a few points along the way. We just learnt from our defeats and you have to bounce back when you lose and you can go on a good run.
“We're looking at the top half of the table and one eye on the play-offs as well.”
The midfielder's main focus, though, is on Saturday's game with Boreham Wood and he is looking for revenge after they came from 1-0 down to triumph 2-1 in stoppage time.
He said: “I'm just focusing on Boreham Wood. They came up with us. I was injured when we played them away and we owe them one after they beat us in the last minute.”
