SAINTS BOSS LOOKS FORWARD
HAVING hopefully shored things up at one end, Chalfont St Peter boss Danny Edwards was this week hoping to bolster his front line, writes Tim Street.
The Saints boss has brought in former Uxbridge keeper Carl Dennison and much-travelled centre-back Jon Munday in recent weeks.
Edwards is now turning his attention to the other end of the pitch and is aiming to bring in a new front man before Saturday’s trip to high-flying Farnborough.
He said: “We’ve tried a few things up front this season, and we haven’t been helped by losing players of the quality of Tony Mendy and Charlie Strutton. Josh Kelly has done well since coming in on loan from Maidenhead, but hopefully we’ll have one more in by Saturday.”
New keeper Dennison, pictured, will battle for the number one shirt with Rourke Pickford, who took the gloves following the departure of Garry Malone while Munday, meanwhile, who started as a youngster at QPR, has since worn the colours of no less than 20 non-league clubs over the past decade.
Edwards said: “Carl is a very good keeper, and with Rourke providing him with competition, we are well covered in that department. Jon has been there and done it twice over, and will give us some much-needed experience at the back.”
Having seen their game last weekend called off, Saints will be hoping for a thaw as, following the trip to Farnborough, they have a League Cup quarter-final against Hayes & Yeading next Tuesday, with the venue still to be confirmed.
Edwards said: “I don’t know what’s happeningpp g with that, , I think they’rey having trouble getting a ground. We offered to play at ours, but they didn’t like that!”
