Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League

....centre half has attracted two bids from clubs at a higher level.
Robins` manager Alan Alsop is resigned to losing the defender, but Murray is expected to play for Ely when they travel to Stanway Rovers today.
"When he plays well, there isn’t a better centre half in the Thurlow Nunn League," said Alsop. "He needs to play at a higher level. I’d be sorry to lose him but I don’t want to stand in his way."
Alsop has close to a full-strength side to choose from for today’s match, but Dave Wilson and Kenny Smith are unavailable and Lee Pacey serves the final match of his three-game ban, meaning Jamie Greygoose will again take his place in goal.
Andrew Claydon is a doubt with an ankle injury, but Sam Parkinson should be fit and brother Luke returns from suspension.
"We need to start putting some good performances together now," added Alsop.
"We’ve had quite a tough start to the season, playing a lot of the teams I expect to be in the top six."
