WILL Spetch is set to follow boss Tom Killick’s advice and focus on his football at Poole Town after being snubbed by Port Vale.

The League One outfit told Dolphins’ 22-year-old defender they would not be following up their interest after he featured in a development squad friendly against Wolves on Monday.

And with no offers forthcoming after trials with Cherries, Portsmouth, Huddersfield Town, AFC Wimbledon and the Valiants, Swanage-based Spetch is keen to keep his eyes on Poole’s promotion prize until the end of the campaign.

The Tatnam prospect told the Daily Echo: “I could not have done a lot more. The problem going to these places at my age is that you have to be quite a bit better than what they have.

“I have been on quite a few trials now and Poole have been great about it but that will probably be it now until the end of the season.

“There comes a point where you have to draw a line under it and concentrate on playing.

"It’s not dead and buried for me and I will still work towards getting my move but we have a lot of games left at Poole and I have to think about what I am doing here.

“As a non-league player, the trials have been a really good experience from me and the training has really helped my fitness.”
