Shaymen will be big test for Brakes

Fellow BGB Midlands side Chasetown may have grabbed the headlines by getting into the 3rd round of the FA Cup, but Leamington face one of their biggest tests since the club was re-formed when they go to Conference side Halifax Town on the FA Trophy in Saturday. It is only the second time the 'new' Leamington has faced a team played by Charlton (I believe that the lowest ever attendance at The Valley was against Halifax). When they went to Colchester in the first round of the FA Cup, Brakes lost 9-1.

Although they are still top of the BGB Midlands, Brakes have decelerated a little recently. They drew 0-0 at home to in form Evesham United and then went down 2-0 away to arch rivals Romulus.

Halifax at home .
I was there , 3,001 was the crowd I think.
Not as good as the 900 who turned up to watch the full members cup match with Bradford at Selhurst . I was there too , but turned up late and they let me walk around the pitch behind the goals while the game was going on !!!
Those were the days , thank god for Murray & Curbs
