Hythe Town striker Alfie May going on trial at League 2 Doncaster Rovers

Clive Cook has paid tribute to ‘level headed’ Hythe Town striker Alfie May who continues to attract the attention of Football League clubs.

The 23-year-old has 18 goals in all competitions this season and netted 29 goals last term as Hythe reached the Ryman League, Division 1 South play-offs.

The striker has already been on trial at League 1 Stevenage and Gillingham and is set to head north on Sunday to begin a stint training with League 2 promotion-chasers Doncaster Rovers, managed by Darren Ferguson.

Hythe boss Cook said: “Of course he’s having his head turned by all this but he’s a level-headed lad and he’s carried on playing well for us and scoring goals. Doing what he does.

“I’m waiting to hear if he’ll be available for us next Tuesday but I know Gillingham are interested in getting him back in for another look in a game situation this time and Stevenage are waiting to see what develops.”

May played 90 minutes as Town stunned Ryman League Premier Division Merstham 3-0 on the road in the FA Trophy second qualifying round on Tuesday night.

The original tie was postponed on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch and Cook said: “We knew in the morning so we had a team meeting and then gave them the rest of the day off. It was good to have a pretty chilled Saturday after all the games we have had recently.”

The rest clearly did the Cannons good as three second-half goals ensured they will host Bishop’s Stortford, of National League South, in the third qualifying round on November 26.

Town visit Sittingbourne on Saturday and Herne Bay on Tuesday.

Cook warned: “It won’t be easy. No games are in this league.

“There are no shocking results anymore. They are Kent derbies where everyone knows each other but we have got to go about our own business.

“We’re still in the play-off places, it’s nice to be here early this season and we’d like to stay there.”

Hythe’s rearranged home league game against Hastings will now be played on January 24.
