Brussels: Leamington have demonstrated their ambition by swooping for forward/attacking midfielder Reis Ashraf. Like many Leamington players, he is a Sky Blues youth academy product, but played for MK Dons last season. This year he has been working for the Glenn Hoddle soccer academy in Spain. It is a sign that Leamington are now preparing for Southern Premiership football as they continue their rise up the non-league pyramid.
The Brakes have quietly dropped the Charlton shield from their programme which celebrated the clubs' kit sponsorship by Joma. As my driver said when he dropped me at St.Pancras yesterday and saw my Charlton Athletic bag, 'Oh dear, oh dear.' Fed up as I am with the performances on the pitch, I will continue to display my loyalty to the club.
That is why I will renew my season ticket at the earliest opportunity. Failing to renew won't change the board's mind about the manager, it will deprive the club of much needed money.
