Leek Town thank good neighbours after reaching cup final

Leek Town chairman Andy Wain has thanked Hanley Town for helping his Evo-Stik Northern Premier League club reach the Staffordshire Senior Cup final.

The Blues beat Port Vale 1-0 in the competition's semi-final last Thursday night at Hanley's Abbey Lane after the North West Counties League club twice stepped in to help following a request from the Blues whose Harrison Park was waterlogged.

After originally agreeing at short notice to host the fixture on Wednesday, Hanley's ground also fell foul of the weather and the tie was finally settled 24 hours later, Tim Grice scoring earlier in the second half to knock out the League One outfit and book a meeting with league rivals Stafford Rangers in the final on Monday 20 April.

Wain, whose manager Lee Casswell is coping with an already congested fixture list in the chase for promotion from First Division South, said: “The people at Hanley Town pulled out all the stops to ensure our game went ahead and I’m grateful for their co-operation which got us out of a rather tricky situation in terms of fixture congestion.

“The hospitality was first class and I’d like to thank the club as well as Paul Legg, Ian Evans and Ian Cooper, the bar staff and catering staff for looking after us so well."
