Leek held on for a nervous few minutes before earning their first win of the season.
Well played to all the squad whose names don’t grab the headlines but with continued work we can only improve under the guidance of the management team of Alan Bailey and Mark Pauley.
It will be a long hard season and good experience for the younger players within the squad
The team are now looking for their first away win of the season at cheadle SMU next Saturday the 22nd September
