Lambe is a wanted man

Offers on the table: Lambe has several options this summer

Reggie Lambe has several clubs competing for his signature including an offer from Mansfield Town who are hoping he will remain at the club.

Lambe, who made 73 appearances and scored ten goals for Mansfield during the past two seasons, did not have an extension clause in his contract and is free to talk to other clubs.

Adam Murray, the Mansfield manager, praised the forward’s “superb” contribution but said he had other targets in mind should Lambe be tempted in a move away from Mill Field.

“Reggie’s got offers elsewhere,” said Murray, whose team finished twelfth in the table this season. “We’re still speaking to Reg.

“Reggie’s been super for us in the time he’s been here so we’ve put something on the table for him and we’ll see if he accepts it, but we’ve got targets.

“We had options on everyone apart from Ryan [Tafazolli] and Reggie, they were the only two who we didn’t have options on.”

Lambe, 25, will captain Bermuda in Wednesday’s Caribbean Cup second-round match against French Guiana in Cayenne, with Nahki Wells ruled out because of a knee injury and Keishen Bean unavailable.

“It’s always an honour to play for your national team, but it’s an even bigger honour to lead your side out,” said Lambe, a former Toronto FC and Ipswich Town player.

“Hopefully they see me as a captain for the future and maybe retain it even when the other players come back.

“I had a little think about it to see if it was something I wanted to do because of my role already in the team. But, I think I can handle what comes with being the captain, the pressure and having to be a role model for the other players.”

Bermuda take on Dominican Republic at the National Stadium in their second and final group match on Saturday.

The second round of the competition features five groups, with the winners and four best runners-up advancing to the third round to be held from October 3 to 9. Jamaica, Haiti and Trinidad and Tobago have received a bye to the third round.
