LEEK hosted a triangular tournament against Midlands Premier sides North Staffs and Harbourne on Sunday.

Jim Williamson played his first game in goal for the first team and Tobias Miller made his much-anticipated appearance in a Leek shirt.

The relaxed style of play suited the visitors more than the home side and this allowed them to get a speculative shot into the goal past Williamson.

Leek responded and tried to lift their game but at half time the score remained the same.

The second half was a different story with the hosts focused on the task and there began a flow of typical Leek moves.

This led to a series of goals being scored. Paul Dawson scored with a rasping drag flick, and Dan O’Neil then added a well taken goal, before a crowd-pleasing debut goal from Tobias Miller extended the lead further.

North Staffs got another goal back but Leek were not to be denied, and went on to score another three goals.

With skipper Mark Brazier back in goal, Leek remained focused and in charge.

Leek scored a total of nine goals and looked more of the side they can be.

Notable performances came from Bobby Dawson, who worked hard all day, and James Gough, who showed his versatility by playing in several positions.

Ben Smith continues to show promise and the exciting Tobias Miller made an impressive debut.
