Tonbridge expect competition in their bid to extend Shamir Goodwin’s loan.

Angels are in talks with Brighton over keeping the young striker at Longmead for a third and final month.They’re hoping to complete a deal in time for Goodwin to start the Skrill South game at Basingstoke on Saturday.

But boss Tommy Warrilow believes big Conference clubs will show an interest now the Skrill Premier loan window is open.

He said: “I’m sure there will be stiff competition for Sham now the Conference boys are back in the market.

“It’s nice when you take a player nobody knows about and work with them and watch them develop to the extent they become a target for others. Conference South is a well-respected league and he certainly hasn’t done himself any harm being here.”

He added: “Whatever happens, we’ve built up a good relationship with Brighton and have helped each other out.

“They know they can send us players and we’ll look after them and treat them right. Hopefully, we’ve helped Sham with the physical side of his game and toughened him up.

“Young pros are always going to be good technically because they work on that side of the game every day. But, by their own admission, academy games aren’t as competitive.”
