Elsewhere, Paul Holleran has confirmed that Connor Taylor has left the club in search of regular first team football.

He will link up with neighbours Racing Club Warwick ahead of their first season back at step 4 following on from promotion via the play-offs last season.

Paul Holleran said: "Connor has been nothing but a pleasure to work with in his time at the club, with him being one of our longest serving players when last season ended. We wish him nothing but the best!"

All at Leamington FC extend the manager's wellwishes to Connor. He and his family are always welcome back at Leamington, and we look forward to seeing him at games when he can attend. We wish him and Racing Club Warwick all the best next season at Step 4, as both the Brakes and the Racers look to build on a fantastic season for Warwick District's two major clubs.
