Sun Postal boss Paul Hobbs has looked to strengthen his side's Spartan South Midlands League Division One title bid by making a seven-day approach for one of the league's top marksman.

Hobbs has moved to provide himself with another attacking weapon by making an approach for Harpenden Town's Harry Hunt.

Sun have watched Hunt, who has scored 23 times for his mid-table club, several times, most recently in their 1-1 draw with Baldock Town in midweek.

Hobbs formally lodged an approach last week and hopes to get the chance to speak to Hunt, a fellow builder, this week and convince him to join Sun's title push.

On Saturday, Sun made hard work of their 3-1 win over struggling Arlesey Town Reserves, who arrived with only ten players and were forced to field their 37-year-old manager, Keith Coughlin, at the heart of the defence.

Two goals from James Armstrong, taking his tally to 20 in an injury hit season, and the opener from Steve Noonan clinched a laboured win over Arlesey, who had levelled the match with a freak goal.

Any disappointment Hobbs felt at the sloppy manner of the win, which was their ninth in ten league games, quickly evaporated when news filtered through that Welwyn Garden City had beaten Kings Langley.

Sun are now one point clear of Bedford, who have played a game more, and eight clear of Langley who have two matches in hand.

Sun have to play their next four matches, including the Herts Centenary Cup final against Belstone, without influential midfielder Ashley Lewis who will serve a five-game ban.
