John Chand has urged two members of his squad to commit their futures to Holbeach after receiving seven-day approaches from a pair of UCL Premier Division title rivals.

League leaders St Ives Town have made a move for striker Robbie Harris, while South Holland rivals Spalding United are keen on versatile left sider Craig Parker.

Tigers chief Chand has always maintained that he’ll not keep players at Carter’s Park against their will, but hopes both opt to stay with his high-flying side.

Neither will be considered for Saturday’s UCL Cup clash at Division One side Eynesbury Rovers (3pm) or Wednesday’s Lincs FA Senior Trophy clash at home To Bourne Town (7.45pm) if they haven’t indicated a desire to stay.

“I’d be flabbergasted if Parks went to Spalding,” said Chand. “I’d hope Robbie would stay too – but I’m not interested in playing any games with either of them. I want a commitment from both before I pick them again.

“The league is our priority, but we’ve got two cup games now and I intend to give all of the lads a game. Saturday will be a tough test.”
