Magpies boss Steve Cuss is hopeful star striker Mark Gamble will remain at Cuthbury next season.

The Ulsterman has netted 28 times in the Southern League Division One South and West this season, but it yet to extend his stay with the Magpies.

“We hope to have him here” said Cuss. “Obviously we have to look at the squad and see what we can do in terms of players for next season.

“I want to keep the squad we’ve got here and hopefully make a few additions over the summer.

“Mark’s a fantastic talent and hopefully we can keep hold of him,”

Gamble signed from Southern Premier League side Bashley last summer, and previously played for Skrill Conference South side Farnborough.

The striker returned from a groin injury two weeks ago, and continued his prolific goal-scoring in the Magpies’ 2-0 win over Tiverton Town on Saturday.

Gamble scored from the spot five minutes after his first penalty attempt was easily saved by Tivvy goalkeeper Michael Searle.

“That’s Mark all over” explained Cuss. “He loves scoring goals and he’ll be disappointed to have missed the first penalty.

“There was no doubt that he wanted to take the second one. He’s a confident goal-scorer and we’re happy he the second penalty to put things right straight away.”
