‘No intention’ of leaving March Town United: Injured Thompson snubs PNS approach

INJURED Lewis Thompson has insisted he has no intention of leaving March Town United after Peterborough Northern Star launched a bid to sign the midfielder.

Former March boss Jamie Weston has put in a seven-day approach for the Hares star, who looks likely to be out of action until Christmas with a knee injury.

But Thompson says he will snub the offer of United Counties League football in favour of staying at the GER.

“I’m staying with March,” he said. “I’m enjoying it and I’ve got no intention of leaving.

“I need to find some consistency to continue going forward.”

Hares boss Paul Crosbie said: “Lewis has told me he’s got no intention of leaving us in the foreseeable future. It’s nice that he wants to stay on because we’ve got a decent bunch of lads.”

Thompson is set to have an operation on his injured knee and, with Scott Welcher and Aaron Bailey also carrying knocks, Crosbie’s midfield options have been depleted.

“We’ve got a bit of a central midfield crisis at the minute,” he said.

“We’ve got lads who will be able to step in and we will have to adapt the way we play to accommodate them.”

March’s miserable October continued on Saturday as they crashed to a 2-1 defeat at Team Bury - their third consecutive Thurlow Nunn First Division loss.

Robbie Masters’ 70th minute header was not enough to inspire the Hares, who shipped two sloppy goals in the first half.

Crosbie said: “It was deeply disappointing. We threw away the points.

“We’ve got an abundance of talented footballers but at the moment we don’t have that mental strength.

“It’s been a difficult month for the first team but things have been positive for the reserves and with matters off the pitch.”
