Keep away from Moore, Oldham tells managers
GERRY Oldham's phone has been red-hot with managers enquiring about Cheltenham Saracens hot-shot striker Ethan Moore.
But the message is clear: leave him alone until Christmas.
The former Cheltenham Town professional has netted six goals in three appearances for Saracens, including four on his debut against Highmoor Ibis.
But Oldham believes he needs time to regain full match sharpness after missing the whole of last season following his departure from the Robins.

"I've had every manager and his dog ringing me and asking about Ethan, but I have told them to leave him alone until he's back to full fitness," Oldham said.
"He needs to play games and if he goes higher, he's likely to be on the bench because he's not fit enough at the moment.
"He's done well, he is keen to play and he has got his hunger back."
Oldham wants Saracens to make it third time lucky in their quest to reach the second round of the FA Vase as they take on Abingdon United tomorrow.
They have been ousted at the first hurdle in both previous attempts and as well as a chance to progress in a prestigious competition, a win tomorrow would be worth £500 to the Petersfield Park club.
Saracens have made a strong start to the new Hellenic League Premier Division season, sitting fifth after six matches.
They defeated Thame United 4-2 at home on Monday and Oldham has been pleased to see his side show some consistency as key players return to fitness.
"If we'd cut out the silly mistakes we could be even higher in the table, but we've done well in the last two games and not panicked when we've gone behind," Oldham said.
"We have a few things to work on in training, but going forward we've been fantastic."
Lorcan Sheehan is unavailable tomorrow, while Jack Oldham (Achilles) and Pay Sayce (groin) are both struggling.
