Wealdstone boss Gordon Bartlett does not fear any January transfer window moves for top scorer Elliot Benyon.
Benyon's hat-trick in Saturday's 3-1 win at Hemel Hempstead, including two very late goals to clinch the points, took his tally for the season to 16 already.
But Bartlett reckons playing with a smile on his face means more to the former Torquay, Swindon and Southend man than proving himself at a higher level again.
He said: “We watched Elliot half a dozen times last year and came back with the same impression every time – his work rate, intelligence and physicality for such a small fella are tremendous. He is always cool under pressure and making split second decisions.
“He has achieved everything I thought he would plus more, and his character is a shining example to everyone. He was asked by our photographer to pose with the fans after Saturday's game, but he refused as he said it was a whole team effort.
“He is under contract and thoroughly enjoying his football here – why would he go? He's got a young family and is settled with a full time job – it would have to be a very good offer to make him uproot again. He is playing where he is happy and appreciated.
“Elliot will take the plaudits, but Jonathan North made some very important saves and is getting back to being the keeper we know he can be. In fact, when it was still 1-1, it was Hemel who were looking the more likely winners – they were in the ascendancy.”
A much-changed Stones side edged past Bedfont Sports 3-2 in the Middlesex Senior Cup on Wednesday night, with Tom Hamlin making his return from injury, before home league games against Eastbourne Borough on Saturday and Bath City on Monday.
