Duku ap­proach re­jected

Gloucestershire Echo - - BRAIN TEASER -

CHEL­TENHAM Town have turned down an ap­proach for striker Manny Duku from Torquay United.

The Gulls, top of Na­tional League South, are man­aged by exrobins boss Gary John­son.

It was John­son who brought Duku to Whad­don Road on a two year deal from Hayes & Yead­ing United last sum­mer.

The 26-year-old re­cently re­turned to his par­ent club af­ter a loan spell at Na­tional League side Bar­net.

He was then side­lined by ten­donitis, but played for 45 min­utes in the Glouces­ter­shire Se­nior Cup against Slim­bridge last week, fol­lowed by an hour in the re­serve match against Bris­tol Rovers on Tues­day.

The Dutch­man was also on the bench for Chel­tenham’s home League Two fix­ture against Mac­cles­field Town on Satur­day, with tar­get man Ty­rone Bar­nett side­lined for up to six weeks with a ham­string in­jury.

Duku’s last taste of first team ac­tion for the Robins was in the 2-0 home de­feat by Lin­coln City on Septem­ber 29. He has one goal for Chel­tenham, res­cu­ing a point at Mac­cles­field Town on Au­gust 21 in John­son’s fi­nal match in charge.
