ANTHONY Stewart played for and scored as a trialist for League One Crawley Town last night.

The 21-year-old defender opened the scoring as the Reds beat local non-league side Three Bridges 2-1.

Wanderers want to keep hold of Stewart and offered him a new contract at the end of last season, but he has so far not committed his future to the club.

Because of his age, and due to the fact he was offered new terms, Blues would be entitled to a transfer fee for the player if he decides to move on.

Sell him,There's no point in having a player at the club who doesn't want to play for WWFC,it will only cause unrest among the players and will his heart be in it if he stays ? Probably not!

Agreed Mowgli, let him go and get the money he obviously
does not care about WWFC otherwise he would have
signed a new contract. Don't waste any more time on him.

Where does it say he doesn't want to play for WWFC? Stewart doesn't strike me as a mercenary type and yet who would begrudge him wanting to play at a higher level? This is how football works - it's a short career, so try and make the most of it. Ainsworth will know that better than anyone.

Would you stay in your job if someone came and offered you 25% more to do the same thing somewhere else?

Graculus is right - there's little loyalty in football, especially at lower league clubs. We should be proud of Stewart - home-grown talent for which we'll get a fee. He could play Championship football in my view, class act. If the move doesn't happen, let's be grateful for every match he does play in the blue quarters. Wanting to test yourself at a higher level does not mean he won't perform for WWFC.
