FC United manager Neil Reynolds has said he is hopeful of keeping top scorer Tunde Owolabi next season.

As part of a Twitter Q&A with supporters, the former Bamber Bridge boss was asked about Owolabi, who is the BetVictor Northern Premier Division’s top scorer so far this season with 28. To the question of ‘is there any chance whatsoever that Tunde will be with us next season?’, Reynolds responed: “Don’t see why not. Tunde loves the way I manage him and (I) love the way he plays.

“We are a perfect match. Obviously I want him to play as high as he can, but would he get the (same) reception at other clubs as he gets at FC?

“I know what that means to Tunde. The stumbling block may be the finances.

“Tunde will be a wanted man, but if we could rival other clubs then I doubt he would go anywhere. In saying this, he isn’t money-motivated one bit, but strikers in our league are paid much more, and he is by far the best, in my opinion.”

Reynolds featured in depth on Non-League Daily earlier this season for The Bosses’ Lounge, which you can read here.
