CHALFONT boss Danny Edwards said they have not received any formal offers for striker Charlie Strutton.

Conference strugglers Hayes and Yeading United declared an interest in the 22-year-old Saints forward last week and said they had put in a seven-day request to speak to the top scorer.

But Edwards insists no approach has come in for the young talent who was also on trial at Leyton Orient last month.

“We have always told Charlie we would be honest and tell him if offers come in,” said the Saints chief. “That is the way it should be but we have had no formal approach from Hayes or any side.

“I have had a few texts and a call from them but cert-ainly no seven-day approach. They are fighting for survival and not in a position to give a young lad the chance to develop.

“But Charlie is happy and focused on playing for us and, as always, is giving everything for Chalfont.”

The Saints are three points outside the Evo-Stik Division One Central play-off spots ahead of a weekend trip to fellow mid-table side Ashford Town (Middx).

Town have found their best form on the road this season while Edwards’ side have won eight games – double the amount they have won at Mill Meadow – on their travels.

He said: “Ashford are a pacey side and we were fortunate to beat them at our place [2-1 in September].

“Every game is tough at the moment because the league is so open.

“We have got to keep focused on our task and see where we are with six to eight games to go.”

Two weeks without a game means Edwards could welcome some of his injured players back into the fold with Kyle Jeffery, Michael Peacock and Ray Walsh all pushing for a return this weekend.
