Vanarama National League South club Wealdstone`s Ciaron Brown to go on trial with Sky Bet Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday this week

Twenty-year-old defender Brown is a very hot prospect with an ever-growing list of scouts from around the professional ranks queuing up at The Vale to check out his progress.

Since arriving at Stones from Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League side Bedfont Sports at the beginning of last season, Brown has rapidly progressed and has made a smooth step up to National League South football.

The 6` plus defender is most comfortable at centre-back but is equally at ease playing in the left-back position where he spent most of his early time for Wealdstone.

But Brown has kicked on in middle of the back row and impressed in the run-in last campaign with his calm, assured play and strength on the ball.

Brown is not one to get carried away but said on Saturday after Stones 1-0 win over Watford under-23s that he is looking forward to his trial at The Owls this week as interest in the young player unsurprisingly ratchets up on a weekly basis.

Wealdstone manager Gordon Bartlett said: “We have a great pedigree at Wealdstone of bringing young players on and moving them up to the pro ranks and Ciaron is more than capable of making the step up having made consistent progress. I’m sure that he will do well in whatever the future holds and we will never hold a player back”.
