Leamington have signed Eight more players. Scott Stamps and Jared Wilson are the pick of them from Tividale and Evesham United respectively. Stamps who has had a wonderful career beings a lot of experiance to the squad. The left back has played at Torquay, Colchester and Kidderminster said on his arrival from Tividale, 'I am amazed by Jason Lippitt's ambitions so could not turn down a chance of playing for Leamington, this club is going places.

Wilson, 23 has played in League 2 with Chesterfield and is a product of the Birmingham City youth system. It is thought that manager Jason Lippitt had to PROMISE him first team football to convince Jared that Leamington was the right club for him.

The last signing that is worth mentioning is Barry Quinn, now for Coventry City fans they may know of him because he had proper Premier League experiance, notching up 45 game game in a Sky Blue shirt and 4 Republic of Ireland Caps.

The Season Beginning

Saturday 18th August

Hutchinson (42)

Saturday 25th August

Adeyinka (89)

It has been a awesome start. Adeyinka looks to be very, very able at this level and I think this season I will be relying on his goals. Hutchinson has been good at the back too can't complain at a unbeaten start.
You have a long, long way to go in this story, but you've made a good start. Look-wise, your story looks appealing, and the results are promising.
Just remember, one bad game, one bad transfer or one bad season shouldn't disappoint you. Slowly but surely, the Brakes will rise.

Leamington signed Stuart Giddings and and Phil Ifill this month, Giddings has played for Coventry City in the Championship and brings a wealth of experiance. Ifil has had a handful of Premier League appearances for Spurs but also played in the Championship for Milwall, Southampton, Colchester United and Dagenham & Redbridge. Ifil joins for £12,000. James Armson also joins for £14,000 from Nuneaten Boro, he has been at Nuneaten Boro since he started his career and is looking forward to helping Leamington onto bigger things.

Unbeaten October for The Brakes

Lippitt's job was perilous at the start of the month now the club, board and fans are really happy with Lippitt as match by match he keeps getting the results resulting in 2nd place in the league. Ifil and Giddings are shrewd signings, with Lippitt also trying still to lure Stefan Moore to the club he will keep trying ofcourse. Leamington Brakes climb all the way up to 2nd in the table. They are now regarded as one of the favourites for the Southern League Cup and with a couple of signings that Lippitt has made they are in with a shout of promotion.

Brakes play live on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Radio

Hello and welcome to this game between AFC Totten and Leamington Brakes. AFC Totton are based in Hampshire but have been performing very poorly this season, lying in 21st place and inside the relegation zone. Brakes however are flying again after a 5-1 win against Banbury United and led up front by Spencer and Adeyinka, Lippitt has this team performing amazingly well. Brakes are 8 points off the leaders but will give them enough pressure to atleast close in a little bit. Brakes name the same team that beat Banbury United that means that it is Spencer and Adeyinka up from and Philip Ifil players right of midfield with Stuart Giddings at left back. Striker Lee Moore isn't even on the bench for Lippitt's side as he went public to the Observer newspaper who ran a vote on whether he should or shouldn;t be in the first team 12% said yes he should and 88% said no he shouldn't and to be honest Adeyinka, Spencer, Lyons and hpkinson are a formidable four pronged rotational attack. Jamie Butler is settling in very well and looks a real find for the Midlands club. The game is just about to kick off.

AFC Totton 2-1 Brakes
Spencer (14)

Half Time Report

Brakes go in all square. Leamington finish the half 1-1 as Totton have a man sent on the 12th minute after taking the leadon the 8th minute. Spencer then scored a tap in in the 14th minute after wonderful play from McBride, who crossed again for Adeyinka to head in but only for it to be given offside. Brakes have changed things at half time, Jackson and former coventry player Barry Quinn on for Mcbride and Hotchkiss.

Brakes slip to surprise loss

Brakes have lost after have FOUR disallowed goals Spencer should have had a hattrik but a couple of decisions went against the Warwickshire team. Lippitt was understandably furious at the interview and stormed out of the press conference when asked if he thought he was being a little over the top! Brakes stay firmly in the playoff places but they are looking to catch the leaders thanks to the ref that is not looking lightly but there is still ages in this season to go.

Kettering Town are flying in the Southern Premier League, Leamington hold 3rd at the moment and at about the half way point its close.
You are doing well with Leamington. I hope you can get promoted :)
OUCH, FOUR disallowed goals? That's unlucky :(
The story is brilliant, great job staying high in the table. Hope you can achieve promotion soon. Keep up the good work! :D
2013-03-06 02:45#83542 neal09 : OUCH, FOUR disallowed goals? That's unlucky :(

Yeah I know but nevermind i will make promotion
2013-03-06 02:45#83542 neal09 : OUCH, FOUR disallowed goals? That's unlucky :(

It is but Spencer's downfall is he is caught offside a lot

Brakes Boss in Radio Interview

Rugby Town Fans Suck But Lippitt Praises Hutchinson

Brakes boss Jason Lippitt had a interview on BBC WM radio today.
Red is BBC WM
Green is Lippitt

Welcome the the Friday Night Football Phone in with Paul Franks, after a lot of requests we have got in the Manager of Leamington Brakes, Jason Lippitt. Brakes are lying in third place after 26 matches in the Southern Premier League, the got to the 4th Qualifying Round in the F.A Cup and are still in the Southern League Cup and we also have questions from the listeners coming in too. Welcome to Sport Zone on BBC WM Jason. So lets go to the lines and to Trisha in Warwick. Hello Jason I have been a season ticket holder this season. How do you assess your team so far?
Well Trisha thanks for coming to support us first and foremost. I think we are in very good shape. The team is playing well and me and the team promised the fans we would challenge for automatic promotion, we might be 11 points behind Hitchen, who by the way are a fantastic football team, but we have the quality and we will give it our all until the end of the season and atleast be in the playoff spots.

Thanks for your question Trisha, next up is Michael from Kenilworth. Thanks Paul my question is why did you get rid of Phil Stamps? He might have got sent off twice but he added a bit of steal to the team?
Hello Michael, well the answer to your question is because he had bad discipline and I new we was going to be getting Stuart Giddings and Marlon Patterson who are a better quality of player dont you think. With them two at the club it shores the defence up.

Thanks Michael for the question. Next up is Josh from Leamington Spa you a season ticket holder Josh? Josh you there? Yes I am actually a Rugby Town fan and I wanna just say that Jason Lippitt is a wanker. (Josh hangs up) Wow I would like to apoligise to the listeners and Jason for that. Do you want to respond to that Jason?
Yes that was absolutely disgusting language to use but just shows we are going the right direction because fans of Rugby Town would not have bothered about that a couple of season's ago.

Ok lets try Keith who is also in Leamington Spa. Yes hi I am a season ticket holder, Who in your eyes Jason has been the stand out player so far this season?
That for me is a difficult on. The Strikers Danny Spencer, Tashan Adeyinka and Tim Hopkinson and Jack Lyons have been awesome for me in-front of goal, but I think Tom Hutchinson has been IMMENSE at the back. He has the ability to rise up the leagues and I just hop its with Leamington.

Unfortunatly Jason has time for one more question and that is going to be Lydia from Leek Wooten. Thanks for making me the last caller. Where do you see yourself realistically finishing this season and if you get promoted will you strengthen?
I think we have an amazing chance at promotion and yes there will be funds available for me to strengthen, Leamington are in amazing shape financially. I think we will need a few players but I have faith in this group of players and I see us going all the way.

I would like Say sorry for the Rude Rugby Town Fan and also to thank you for your time Jason and everyone at BBC WM are rooting for Leamington to be in the Conference South next season
