Are AFC Wimbledon a big enough move for Maidstone United striker Joe Pigott after this interview?

By Craig Tucker

Joe Pigott is by no means certain to leave Maidstone United for AFC Wimbledon.

The League 1 strugglers have been given permission to speak to United’s 12-goal leading scorer after triggering a buy-out clause, said to be £25,000.

But Pigott, speaking in a programme interview for the Stones’ FA Trophy tie against Heybridge tomorrow, reveals he’s in no rush to move on.

He rules out a League 2 move and says it would take a “fairly special” League 1 offer to be “even half-interested” in leaving his hometown club this month.

Whether a relegation battle at Kingsmeadow is enough to tempt Pigott away from the Gallagher Stadium, only time will tell.

Pigott said: “It would take a fairly special offer at the moment to be honest.

“If it was the league above I don’t think I’d be interested at all.

“It would have to be League 1 to be even half-interested.

“I’m really happy here. I just hope we start picking up better results.

“I’m more interested in how we’re doing as a team.

“There’s still a lot of games to play and we’re still in the FA Trophy and looking to progress in that as well.

“The hometown factor comes into it as well, especially for my family.

“My old man has always supported me as a player but he’s a massive supporter of the club now.

“I’ve still got a lot to improve but I’m happy to go and express myself, which Jay’s let me do, and hopefully I can go and win as many games as I can for the boys.”
