Ollie Palmer’s dream to play in the Football League has been put on ice.
The Hawks have turned down a bid – understood to be a sum in four figures – from League One outfit Colchester United for the striker.
Westleigh Park boss Lee Bradbury insists the club’s leading scorer is happy with the decision.
However, Palmer himself is unavailable for comment.
‘Colchester offered a fee which was small in our eyes,’ said Bradbury.
‘We sat down and discussed it with the player and he is happy to stay here.
‘The fee offered was much lower than what the club and I value Ollie.
‘Ollie has ambitions to move into professional football and I would be disappointed if he didn’t want to do that.
‘I’ve had a chat with him, his head is in the right place and he is committed to this club.’
