Maidstone United boss Jay Saunders faces competition from Canvey Island, Hornchurch and Billericay for Jerrome Sobers
Jay Saunders has a decision to
make on the future of defender Jerrome Sobers – less than a week
after signing him.
Sobers (pictured) has joined
Maidstone unpaid but with Steve Watt also arriving on loan from
Dover, he could only make the bench against Burgess Hill.
On top of that, Nicky Humphrey has
recovered from a knee injury and played 45 minutes in a 4-1
friendly defeat by Erith & Belvedere on Tuesday.
Sobers, a Ryman League Premier
Division title winner with Billericay last season, wants to stay at
Maidstone but also has other options.
United boss Saunders said:
"Jerrome’s a good player and someone I like a lot but I’d been
after Steve Watt for a month and wanted to see that deal
"It gives us some thinking to do
because with Nicky Humphrey coming back to fitness, we suddenly
have five centre-halves with Graeme Andrews and Steve Ward.
"Jerrome’s come in unpaid and he’s
keen to stay but he also has Canvey Island, Hornchurch and
Billericay after him."
Stones face two Kent derbies in four
days with Herne Bay away on Saturday, followed by Whitstable at the
Gallagher Stadium on Tuesday night.
Humphrey’s return means Charlie Mitten
(broken arm) is United’s only absentee.
