The Staffordshire club who produced England rugby star Dan Robson have finally got their season up and running, after Longton Rugby Club hammered Moseley Oak 39-14 last Saturday. It has not been the greatest of starts for George Glenn’s men following relegation to the Midlands One West Division, with his side enduring a poor run of ten consecutive defeats in the buildup to the clash with the Oak.
Leek Town are ninth in the Evo-Stik West Division and are sat on 20 points after 12 games, but The Blues are currently experiencing a damaging run of four defeats in five games.
Town started the season well and went 12 games unbeaten but since then, manager Neil Baker has seen his side fall to defeat against teams in the top half of the table but that does not stop the boss from setting his sights on promotion, despite saying his team are underachieving.
