Impressive Brakes Are Pulling No Punches This Time

A year is a long time in football. Just ask Leamington manager Paul Holleran.

Last September the Brakes were wondering just how long they would be a part of the National League North having just earned promotion.

Languishing near the bottom of the table, Holleran feared the worst.

Some 12 months on, they are wondering if they have a chance to escape the division via a more dignified route.

Leamington’s great start to the new season has surprised many. On Saturday they won 2-0 at Blyth Spartans, a result which took them level on points with the play-off places. Watch highlights here.

“Ten games in we have competed in each of them so far, which again is pleasing because at times in the first ten games last season we looked out of our depth,” Holleran told the club’s website.

“The squad was a little stretched but it was an excellent performance against Blyth, I’m delighted.

“There were some massive individual performances but more importantly a massive collective team performance.

“It was pleasing for us as a group that things we’ve worked on this week and spoken about, it’s great when it comes to a Saturday afternoon and it all goes your way.”

Leamington next face Stourbridge in the FA Cup.
