Chelmsford City manager, Rod Stringer, confessed he would like to bolster his ranks, with a striker towards the top of his wish list.

Nevertheless, Stringer explained that he wants to be sure that any potential addition to the team must be the right fit: “We are still being busy in the market, he said. Obviously, it is the time of year that people become available. I don’t just want to jump at the first opportunity, I think the player has got to suit us for more reasons than one.

“I’m busy, but like everything, It’s not that easy because these players are sort after and everybody is looking for a good centre forward. We will keep working at it. I’m nearly there on one or two, we just need to monitor that over the next week or so.

Stringer spoke about the Clarets being linked with Aldershot Town frontman, Charlie Walker, adding: “I don’t know where all this information comes from sometimes. But yes, it’s someone that we are interested in. Charlie has now come away from Aldershot so he is looking to go again. Obviously, I think the lad would like to stay in the National League if I’m being honest, but we have done as much as we can to speak to him. If he decides that Chelmsford is the place to be, then great.

“There are also two or three others we are talking to. I’m sure something will happen. I just don’t want to be too rational and jump in taking the first opportunity. It is a bit like anything really. If you take a little bit of time you sometimes get the better results.”
