“I am delighted to welcome the new players to Leatherhead” said the new boss. “Last week we added Reise, Trey, Rob and Ajuub to compensate for the players who moved on. In adding to the squad further, we now have the strength in depth to be competitive.”

Everyone knows I have enormous respect for everyone at Merstham Football Club and although they have not started well, I have no doubt Peter will guide the team to a very good season. The League Table will mean little on Saturday. I have absolutely no doubt it will be a tough game.”
