The former Oxford City striker believes his new club have another weapon other than Lee Chappell's enormous throw to worry their opponents – his aerial ability. At 6' 2” the 26-year-old is no shrinking violet and his experience of the rough and tumble nature of the Northern and Zamaretto Premier leagues should see him take to the Ryman stage with no problems.
Only Charlie Mpi, who is yet to convince, and recently departed versatile skipper James Gray possessed any real threat in the air amongst the strikers last season.
Now Douglas has set his sights on a minimum of 15 goals and hopes most of those come via his head.
“I can hold the ball up and am a good target-man,” said Douglas, who helped Ilkeston Town to promotion to the Conference North two seasons ago. “I am good in the air and with the wide players we have at the club I am expecting the delivery to be good so I can get on the end of it.”
Douglas, a financial advisor, was recommended to Stones boss Gordon Bartlett by former Ilkeston Town manager David Holdsworth, now in charge of Mansfield Town.
“I moved to London from Rugby and wanted to find the best club for me,” added Douglas. “Wealdstone was the best fit for me on every level. I came down and had a good chat with Gordon and got a good feeling about the place.
“I am not taking anything for granted but I aim to establish myself in the first team and score the goals that get us in the play-offs at the very least.
“The manager has brought in quite a few strikers and competition for places is high, but that is what you want at any club.
“He has brought us in to do a job and we all bring different qualities - I am not the wide guy or the little guy.”
