* BLUES moved up into third place in the Fair Play table after picking up the award in the First Division South for October.

Blues had just two cautions over the course of the month ¨C edging out Newcastle Town and Goole AFC, who had three and four players booked respectively.

Leek were presented with their award by league representative John Beaumont prior to the home game against Rainworth on Saturday.

Mr Beaumont is pictured above, second from left, with (from left) Saturday¡¯s man-of-the-match Sam Hall, Blues management team member Peter Ward and club chairman Andy Wain.

* THE PRIZE for Leek Town winning their much-delayed FA Trophy second round tie at Witton Albion last night (Tuesday) is a trip to Brackley Town this Saturday.

However, this will depend on the outcome of Brackley¡¯s FA Cup first round reply with Gillingham last night. The non-league side were denied a giant-killing act by a lastminute equaliser on Saturday.

* LEADING scorer Jordan Johnson was looking to score at least one goal in the game against Rainworth on Saturday to extend his record of scoring in the previous nine games.

However, it wasn¡¯t to be, as his side failed to score for only the second time in league action this season.

However, Johnson remains joint top of the league¡¯s goalscoring charts ¨C level with Halesowen¡¯s Ben Haseley on 13 strikes. Johnson has now netted 18 goals in all competitions this season.

* SKIPPER Sam Hall picked up his fifth caution of the season against Rainworth and will miss the home game against Eastwood Town on Saturday, November 23 because of a one-match ban.

* Blues manager Lee Casswell is looking to strengthen his squad even further after signing former Leek defender Ryan Brown from Stafford Rangers.

Casswell has now set his sights on a midfielder from the Evo-Stik Premier Division in time for this weekend.

Midfielder Anthony Danylyk looks to have overcome ankle damage and will be added to the squad this week, while defender Joe Evans has been forced to miss the last two games suffering from an eye infection that resulted in a brief hospital stay.

* LEEK Town are looking for someone to take over as secretary of their reserve team that operates in the Staffordshire County Senior League this season.

Some experience would be an advantage but is not essential.

Anyone interested should contact chairman Andy Wain on 07974 710 181 or e-mail andywain2@ sky.com.
