St Neots Town interim boss Andy Davies has set his sights on landing a second twin.
Hot on the heels of his capture of left-back Jonny Hall last week, Saints are now in hot pursuit of his goalscoring sibling, James.
Davies is a long-time admirer of the striker, who scored a combined total of 41 goals for Godmanchester Rovers and Cambridge City last season. He failed in a bid to sign him back in March, but has stepped up his interest again
Davies said: “I have spoken to James and made him an offer to become a St Neots Town player.
“I’m awaiting a decision from him, but I’m well aware we face plenty of competition.
You may also want to watch:
“A centre forward who can score goals is a must for any team, and I feel James can do that job for us.
“That position is a high priority, but James is not the only striker I’m talking to at the moment.”

Davies is also keen to retain the services of Drew Roberts and will offer him a new deal when he returns from holiday later this week.
Roberts was the top-scorer at Southern League Premier Division level for four successive seasons until missing much of last term following a knee operation.
Before then, Davies hopes to make Needham Market right-back Ollie Brown his third summer capture.
He was due to hold talks last night (Tuesday) with a player who has also represented other Suffolk sides Whitton and Hadleigh after being on the books of Ipswich Town as a youngster.
Another Needham Market man, winger Jordan Patrick, has been invited to pre-season training by Davies. Patrick started his career at Cambridge United but has since dropped down the non-league ladder.
Fellow wideman Matt Sparrow has also been offered a chance to impress the Saints management. He was joint top-scorer for United Counties League club Wisbech Town last season and is known to Davies from his days working in the Posh youth set-up.
Saints are still to appoint a permanent manager, but that could change in the coming days.
