Falmouth face fight to land former striker Drummond
There will be extra incentive for Falmouth Town on Saturday when they welcome St Blazey to Bickland Park in the first round of the Throgmorton Cup.
Manager John Dent confirmed to West Briton Sport yesterday that an approach has been made for former striker Matt Drummond from Bodmin Town.
But Dent also revealed the club face competition for the player, ironically from Saturday’s opponents St Blazey.
The Town boss has been keen to strengthen his attacking options and Drummond, who left Falmouth to join Newquay at the start of last season, would fit the bill perfectly.

He finished as the club’s leading scorer in the 2011/12 season, before making the move to the Peppermints.
However, Drummond spent much of last season building up his fitness after suffering a broken ankle playing for Falmouth against Bodmin in the Charity Bowl in August 2012.
He moved to Bodmin at the start of the season, but has slipped down the pecking order at Priory Park following the signings of Chris Wright, and more recently Seb Broomfield and ex Falmouth striker Danny O’Hagan.
And now Drummond must decide on whether to re-join Falmouth or sign for their premier division rivals St Blazey.
Dent said: “We have made an approach for Matt and he will be making a decision before the weekend.
“It certainly makes things interesting ahead of Saturday’s game but as far as I understand he would be cup-tied anyway.”
The signing of Drummond would be a massive boost for Falmouth, who have struggled for goals this season, scoring just 16 so far in the premier division.
Dent has been working hard to strengthen his squad since taking over from Robbie Stephens last month.
And he also confirmed yesterday that the club have received an approach from Mousehole for defender Calron Hall.
However, the former Truro City defender has committed his future to the club.
Dent said: “I’ve spoken to Calron and he has told me has no intention at all of joining Mousehole. He is very happy here.”
