Manager Danny Edwards is on the lookout for another striker for Chalfont St Peter following Michael Malcolm's recent departure.

Malcolm, who Spurs once paid Wycombe Wanderers £10k for as a schoolboy, but whose only taste of pro football came with Stockport County before drifting into non-league football, joined the club at the start of the season.

He was intended to be the main man up front for the Saints this season, but a pre-season injury scuppered those plans and he failed to make a single league appearance for Edwards' men, turning out only in three cup games.

He has now joined Chalfont's Southern One Central rivals Barton Rovers, where he once again hooks up with manager Jimmy Gray, who he played under at St Albans two years ago.

Edwards said: “Michael has left us. He had an offer at Barton from his ex-manager from St Albans, and he didn't think he was getting a fair enough shout here. He was finding it hard in training, wasn't getting to many sessions and so wasn't getting selected. It was just one of those things, but he's a good lad and we wish him all the best at Barton.

“So we're on the lookout for another centre forward, as Aaron Morgan, who was dual registered with us from Hendon, has moved on too. It's left us a little bit light up front, but we will look at few options and see if we can get one or two in.”

In the meantime, Craige Tomkins, scorer of nine goals in as many cup games this season, responded to his manager's call for more league goals but striking a third of the campaign in Saturday's 2-0 win at Petersfield Town.

Jack Mullan also netted, but Edwards was just as pleased with the clean sheet, adding: “We look very tight at the back now and don't look like we're going to concede many.We just need to start scoring more, it's the only thing we need to work on.”

Chalfont host Uxbridge this Saturday before travelling to Kempston Rovers on Tuesday night.
