TRANSFER target Chris Moore has told Wealdstone it will take something special to tempt him from Uxbridge.
Stones boss Gordon Bartlett put in a seven-day approach for the former Brentford striker last Wednesday.
Reds boss Tony Choules has spoken to the striker and told him he will leave Honeycroft with his blessing if he decides to move to the Ryman Premier.
Moore has been in superb form this terms and has raced to the top of Uxbridge’s scoring charts after two previous campaigns disrupted by off-the-field issues.
Having found his shooting boots this season, Moore is happy with life under Choules and has warned Bartlett he will need to put together an attractive package to snare him.
He said: “I played in the Football League and won the Conference so it is not about the step up for me, it has to be the right club and the plans. It would take something special for me to leave Uxbridge. I know Wealdstone are a league above and flying so it’s going to be attractive but it’ll take something to get me to leave.
“I stopped playing halfway through last season for personal reasons and I did the same thing the season before for the same reason. That has all been sorted now and I’m just concentrating on my football. I am 100 per cent focused on football now and I think that has shown in my performances.”
Moore was included in Uxbridge’s squad to face Daventry on Tuesday night but welcomed interest from the Stones and was planning talks this week.
He added: “It’s nice to have interest because you know you’re doing your job properly. I am a big believer that you’ve got to speak to everyone and see what they’ve got to say so I will definitely be sitting down and having a chat with Wealdstone. Until I have done that I don’t know.
“Everyone knows I love playing at Uxbridge and I was here before I went pro. I know all the board and staff well here so we’ll have to see what happens. Gordon Bartlett was Wealdstone’s manager when I was playing at Uxbridge before so I’ve met him a few times and I know one of their coaching team.
“Wealdstone have always been a good side and they now seem to look like they’ve got the infrastructure in place and look like they want to go places. I need to speak to Gordon and see what his plans are.”
Meanwhile, Wealdstone will have to do without skipper Wes Parker for this weekend’s visit of Hendon as the defender serves a one-match ban. Striker Richard Jolly could also miss out with a hamstring injury.
