Non-league: Striker search for Christchurch chief Cuffie
MICHAEL Cuffie claimed Christchurch had “absolutely battered” Lymington without scoring last night – prompting the manager to step up his search for a striker.
The Priory chief bemoaned a lack of cutting edge after witnessing his side slip out of the Hampshire Senior Cup thanks to a solitary strike at Hurn Bridge.
And after being forced to admit defeat in his pursuit of Poole Borough prospect Conor Jevon, who got snapped up on dual registration by Conference South outfit Dorchester Town, Cuffie vowed to leave no stone unturned in his pursuit of a goalscorer.
He told the Daily Echo: “The Lymington match wasn’t close at all. We absolutely battered them and I was really frustrated by the result.
“They had three shots. One went in, another hit the bar and the last one was at the end while we were pushing forward.
“We could have been there all night and not scored so my search for a goalscorer has become desperate because we have played some fantastic football with getting our rewards.”
Meanwhile, despite losing out on Jevon, Cuffie said the door would always be open for the hotshot at Christchurch.
Winger Dan Hiscock comes back in for Priory’s home match with Alresford on Saturday (3pm) after being ineligible for the Lymington match.
Priory: (from) Frampton, Doe, Cole, Walker, Baker, Blackburn, Purdy, Hiscock, Smith, Fairbrother, Saul, Foster, Cullen, Burden, Homan, Proudley, Steer.
