Competition for No.1 spot
The West Stand at Banbury Road
While there may be competition at Charlton between Nicky Weaver and Darren Randolph for the role of goalkeeper, it is nothing compared with the competition at Harbury Lane after Leamington signed Chris Gibson. He will compete with established keeper Richard Morris, an ex Sky Blues trainee, for the No.1 shirt.
Gibson is the son of Colin Gibson who played for Villa and Manchester United. He started his career at the Baggies and Mansfield Town and later played for Tamworth in the Conference.
Brakes are hoping to win the Friendship Cup for the third time in a row at Banbury Road, but Southam United are well up for this needle fixture. If Richard Morris does play in goal, he is unlikely to get the chance of scoring from the penalty spot as he did in a 6-1 defeat of the Saints a few years back.
