Tom Berwick has admitted he would be open to a possible move to AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

Rumours surfaced over the weekend that the former Corby Town striker, who has most recently been at Daventry Town, could be a potential target for the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League leaders.

Diamonds added three new signings to their ranks last week with Huntingdon Town captain Declan Rogers, Neil King and Luke Fairlamb all joining the club.

Berwick confirmed he did speak to Diamonds recently about a possible move and while that wasn’t possible at the time, he insists he would still be willing to talk to them.

“There have been several comments made in the past few weeks that aren’t true,” Berwick said.

“I had spoken to Diamonds a month or so ago about a possible move but they weren’t in a position to make me an offer.

“It might sound strange but it would be a good move for me at the moment. I feel like I could offer them something different than what they already have.”

Diamonds’ title hopes suffered a wobble at the weekend as they suffered a shock 2-0 defeat at Oadby Town.

Their lead at the top was cut to just two points as Holbeach United, who also have two games in hand, beat AFC Kempston 3-0.

Peaks’ men will be highly-fancied to open up a five-point lead tonight (Tuesday) when they take on struggling Harborough Town at the Dog & Duck.

Desborough Town will be keen to pick up from where they left off on Saturday as they prepare to face rock-bottom Long Buckby at the Waterworks Field this evening.

Ian Walker’s side claimed an impressive 5-2 success over Eynesbury Rovers at the weekend.

Wellingborough Town are also back in action this evening as they look to bounce back from their 3-2 loss to Wisbech Town at Cogenhoe United.

Division One side Irchester United head to Premier Division outfit Sileby Rangers in the UCL Knockout Cup tonight.

The Romams picked up their best result of the league season so far on Saturday when they beat high-flying Peterborough Sports 1-0 at Alfred Street.

It has been a season of struggle for Division One clubs Stewarts & Lloyds and Burton Park Wanderers but both will be hoping for some relief when they meet at Occupation Road this evening.

The Foundrymen suffered a 24th defeat in 24 matches when they lost 4-0 at Olney Town on Saturday while Wanderers have claimed just 10 points from 23 games so far.
