Brakes supremo appeals to fans
Brakes boss David Hucker has issued an appeal to fans to turn out and support Leamington when they face the Royals at the New Windmill Ground this afternoon. Brakes went down 1-0 away at Rushall Olympic on Saturday, leading to an outbreak of whingeing on the club's message boards.
Hucker said: 'I know that some people were unhappy at Saturday's showing and can understand their frustration. However, everyone connected with the team realises that it was a poor performance and I am sure that we will see a big improvement on Monday. This season will see some low points as well as high ones and we all need to get behind the team to get back on the winning track.'
Brakes have lost two of their best players, Jon Adams and Jamie Towers, to a higher level and there must always be concerns about how long they can hang on to former Coventry City striker Ben Mackey. They are competing at a higher level and can no longer expect every game to be a win.
