Chatham Town have a hole to fill following the unexpected departure of striker Alfie May.

May looked set to feature for Chatham this season but has instead joined Erith & Belvedere.

Boss Kevin Watson has wasted no time in looking for a replacement with former Bradford, Barnet and Mansfield striker Luke Medley on trial at the club.

Former Tonbridge Angels striker Alwyn Jones could also be the man to fill the void, while under-21 player Abraham Alalde is pushing for a place in the senior set-up.

“There is a hole to fill and we are looking at a few options,” said Watson, whose side drew 3-3 with Sittingbourne on Tuesday after goals by Austin Gacheru (2) and Brad Potter.

“Alwyn has been out playing in the States and is of a good pedigree.

“I have been trying to get Luke Medley down for a couple of weeks but he has been at a training camp abroad with Crystal Palace, where he coaches.”

Alalde was on target for Chatham in a 2-1 friendly win over Whitstable last Saturday, scoring after just four minutes. Ade Yussuf netted the winner.

Chatham complete their pre-season schedule at home to Hythe on Saturday. Kick-off is at 3pm.
