Leamington supremo Jason Cadden is not letting the grass grow under his feet as he prepares for the team's Southern Premiership campaign. His latest move is an auadcious transatlantic swoop to sign highly rated striker Nicky Gordon. The one downside is that the player will not be able to join the Brakes until October because of his playing and coaching commitments in the States.
Leamington's defence probably needs more strengthening than other parts of the side and Cadzy has signed former Villa academy full back Chris Tuohy. After leaving Villa, he played for Tamworth and Solihull Moors.
There is less action at The Valley, as the future ownership of the team remains to be decided and along with it the fate of manager Phil Parkinson. However, he has expressed an interest in retaining the services of Darren Ward who he thinks is a good influence on younger players.
