NATIONAL LEAGUE CLUB
George Kamurasi seems unlikely to return to Ashford United next season.
The popular 25-year-old Ugandan goalkeeper had initially committed to the club but informed boss Danny Lye this week that he has received an offer from Vanarama National League side Bromley.
Kamurasi joined United on dual-registration from Grays Athletic last October but returned to the Essex club for the final two games of the season to cover for a suspension.
Lye said: “George rang me on Tuesday saying Bromley had been in touch and it seems likely he will go there as back-up.
“If somebody at that level comes in for you, you have got to do it.”
Darren Hawkes, who had a short spell with United last season, is set to return and Dan Cook, who replaced Kamurasi, is also likely to join-in pre-season training.
Lye is due to have talks with three players later today (Thursday) as he continues to shape his squad for the new season.
He said: “They are a centre half, midfielder and striker, and I am meeting them together with (assistant manager Shaun Welford and coach Shaun Holland) and pretty confident of getting

two out of the three, which will improve us.
“If I do, it means we will be done as far as players coming in is concerned and I will probably have to let one or two go in due course.”
Meanwhile, Lye says the club are offering sponsors and supporters the opportunity to donate to the playing budget ahead of the new season.
He said: “It is something which developed from an idea floated at the recent fans forum and more details will be available on the website shortly.”
