Levi Reid is not expected to be among the faces when Stafford Rangers return to pre-season training tonight as the winger chases a move to a full-time club.

The 26-year-old is desperate to make football his first profession again after tasting the big time with Port Vale, Macclesfield and Oxford, along with two spells in the semi-professional game with Rangers.

Reid finished last season at Marston Road on non-contract forms after returning to the club last August and remains highly-rated by manager Chris Brindley, but will not commit to coming back for next season until it's clear his dreams of returning to the professional game are over.

In the early stages of pre-season training it may not present too much of a problem, as the squad will mainly be concentrating on fitness work, with Reid continuing to work on his own as he has done all over the summer at Cannock Chase.

But the Stafford-born wide man has not closed the door on Rangers, although his future remains uncertain.

He said: "I am not sure what I am doing yet, to be honest, as I am waiting to hear from other clubs. It's been the same since the end of last season really, I am just trying to get back into full-time football.

"But it doesn't get going yet, a lot of teams start back in the next week and then look at who they are going to bring in, trialists or whatever. I am just waiting, I am not going to say I will be signing for Rangers when I could get a trial somewhere.

"I spoke to the gaffer a few weeks ago and I am sure I will be speaking to him again shortly, he's knows my aim and it hasn't changed. I am looking at my options."
