SAINTS BOSS LOOKS FOR­WARD

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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!”
