Printed copies of the Town Crier will still be available on match days, priced at £1.50.

SUPPORTERS are being advised about new ground regulations which apply at Harrison Park.

In line with the Football Association's regulations, the club is not legally allowed to permit alcohol on the terracing during any football game during the coming league and cup campaigns.

To comply with this ruling, the club will be containing alcohol inside the bar.

The club introduced a 'no re-entry' rule and other security measures following incidents in recent seasons.

All gate stewards have been instructed to enforce this ruling and supporters are requested not to ask to leave.

Due to a number of complaints and comments, it has been decided to make the main grandstand a 'no smoking' area.

Smoking will still be allowed on the Macclesfield Road, Grace Street and Kiln Lane terracing as well as outside the Blues Bar and in the lower paddock standing below the main stand.

Finally, following complaints from referees, children will not now be permitted to play ball inside the stadium. Supporters with children are asked not to bring a ball into the ground.

DUE to the success of the launch night last month, an open evening has now been set up for anyone who is interested in joining Leek Town's new Academy programme for 16 to 18-year-olds.

Starting in September, the club is setting up a new venture with the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League, looking to give aspiring footballers the chance to take the first step on the ladder in the world of football.

The aim is to give the academy team a robust educational package comprising a Level 3 BTEC in sport, which ultimately could give them a gateway into university or other further education.

Players will experience the day-to-day reality of football at the club while competing in prestigious competitions like the FA Youth Cup and the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Academy League.

An open evening has been arranged for Wednesday, September 3, 7pm at Harrison Park, where players, parents, guardians, family members, teachers, managers and coaches are invited to come along. For details, call Steve Kell on 07826 206199.
