Shots No Nearer Signing A Striker

Last updated : 17 January 2006 By Stray Shots Team
Speaking to official club website,, about the clubs striker crisis Terry Brown has said there has been no change since last week.

Brown has made offers, however in true house selling style, there are chains with other clubs refusing to release players until they manage to bring in replacements and with the window closing at the end of the month, things aren't looking very hopeful.

Brown told the website, "It has been well documented about the situation regarding the importance of signing a striker and I had the opportunity to look at a player on Saturday and will be continuing that policy during this week too looking at other matches".

He also went on to say that there has been interest in Shots striker Tim Sills and that the two have sat down together to talk about the situation.

Sills is out of contract at the end of the season and is keen to play at as high a level as possible, having already turned down Bristol Rovers and Grimsby in the past, may well feel it is time to move on at the end of this season - especially with the Shots not having the best of seasons.

One mistake Brown does not look like making again is releasing Sills mid-season without first bringing in a replacement as has been the case with Roscoe D'Sane.
