Oakham striker Lewis Leckie has declined a move to UCL, Premier Division PNS, saying that he is happy to stay at Sterling Meadow where he is back to his best and enjoying his football.
"I'm absolutely delighted that he's made this decision," said Tractor Boys boss Wayne Oldaker. "I am also grateful to Seb Hayes at PNS who conducted everything through the right channels.
"They put in a seven day approach but, as I have known Seb for so long, I allowed them to speak with him immediately. I am just so pleased he is staying. Lewis is loyal to the club. I know a lot of people there will appreciate that."
Wayne, however, was not so happy with a second Prem approach which, it must be said, took short cuts. "No official approach there," frowned Oldaker. Official or not, that enquiry has also been rejected.
Leckie will head up the Oakham attack tomorrow when they travel to Olney Town who have already beaten them twice this season."Thorney were our bogey team last season and I think Olney have taken on that mantle this year. We'll be looking to put a stop to that," continued Wayne.
Of team news, Andy Sayers is not yet ready to return but there is good news regarding Robbie Pearce who will get game time with the reserves. They have a massive game at home to Thorney Reserves.
