Martin Ling gives striker Wayne Gray trial at Cambridge

Cambridge United boss Martin Ling is considering signing former Leyton Orient striker Wayne Gray.

The 29-year-old, who played at Orient under the U's boss, is currently without a club.

Ling told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "He's got pace and power and did a job for me for two years at Orient.

"He had a season hindered by injury last year. He's looking for a second chance and Wayne's prepared to show me what he's about."

The forward was released by Grays Athletic in May, where he scored once in eight appearances after signing in January.

The former Southend man joined AFC Hornchurch after leaving Brisbane Road 12 months ago, but has struggled with injuries ever since.

"I want to know that he's still the same player before we start," added Ling.

"We've got a board meeting on Thursday to see what's left in the pot and to see what calibre of player we can afford."

Gray's most fruitful spell came during his two years at the Shrimpers between 2004 and 2006, where he scored 20 goals in 87 games.

Meanwhile Ling says he is still making up his mind about whether former Lincoln City boss John Schofield will be joining his coaching staff.

Schofield has been helping with the U's training sessions and the club hope to make a decision within seven days.
