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.”
