Rawle keen to stay on with Fleet

Thursday 02nd March 2006
Gravesend and Northfleet's on-loan striker Mark Rawle wants to earn a permanent contract at the Stonebridge Road club.


The 26-year-old signed joined Fleet from Woking in January for the rest of the season on loan.


Rawle told BBC Radio Kent: "I'm trying to do the best I can. If I don't do well I might not be wanted here.


"I'm trying to put myself in the good books of the manager and if he wants to offer me something at the end of the season that's good for me."


Meanwhile, Crawley Town’s Neil Jenkins grabbed a late goal to deny Gravesend & Northfleet and rescue a point for John Hollins' strugglers on Tuesday night.


Fleet dominated from the start and went close early on through a Paul McCarthy header and Andy Drury's 20-yard shot.


Lee Blackburn's ambitious 25-yard was the visitors' only notable chance and it was no surprise when Rawle fired Fleet ahead from close range.


But Crawley made the Kent side pay for missing a host of chances when Jenkins slid home the leveller in injury-time.
