DAVE Reynolds plans to keep his suitors waiting for at least a week before considering his next move.

The prolific striker rounded off the campaign with two goals to help Malvern Town to a 3-2 victory over Lye Town in the Smedley Crooke Memorial Cup on Saturday.

The Hillsiders trailed by two at the interval but Reynolds, who remained registered with and eligible for Redditch United and Worcester City, once again had the last laugh.

He started the campaign strongly for City before stepping up two levels with Redditch while still recovering from ankle ligament damage.

Having found starts hard to come by, the Malvern-based hotshot returned to his hometown club while weaving in a couple of cameos for City, which included the brace that helped lift the Worcestershire Senior Urn. 

And having rounded off with a second piece of silverware with Town, Reynolds plans to kick back before getting embroiled in the annual free-for-all associated with the closed season.

“I couldn't wait to play in the final for Malvern all week, now I am just looking forward to having a rest,” said Reynolds.

“The plan is to do nothing for a week, just enjoy a bit of time with the family and then see what happens, what opportunities arise and what takes my fancy.

“I will see what works for me family wise, where the best fit is and an important part of that will be where I enjoy my football.

“I would like to win things. If it is Malvern I want to win the league and wherever I am, I just want to win.

“At the moment I don’t know where it will be. I have ambition and want to play at the highest level I can, I had an opportunity at Redditch this season which didn’t quite work out but I don’t think I was fully fit at the time.

“That hasn’t stopped me wanting to have another go and prove I am good enough to play at that level.

“Everything has to be taken into account, especially my family. At the same time I am getting to the end of my career and want to be lifting trophies, involved in league titles, play-off matches and cup finals.”

Things might not have gone to plan for Reynolds at the Valley Stadium but Reynolds has no regrets.

“I got injured before I went to Redditch and never quite got my rhythm back. The best thing was for me to go home to Malvern, start enjoying football again and get myself properly fit,” he added.

“In the past six to eight weeks I really felt like I had got my sharpness back.

“To finish with a cup for Worcester was fantastic, especially for Snapper (manager John Snape), and then it was nice to end with another trophy with Malvern too.

“It turned out to be a fairly successful season.”
