FOOTBALL - Holleran signs on for 15th season as Leamington boss

PAUL Holleran has extended his tenure as Leamington boss into a 15th season after he signed a new deal for the 2023/24 campaign.

The Brakes suffered relegation from the National League North last term and will play in the Southern League Premier Central this coming season.

Holleran was appointed Brakes boss in 2009 and has twice guided the club to the Southern League title during his 661-game stint in charge of Leamington.

Chairman Jim Scott said: “It was an easy discussion to be had in the boardroom with unanimous support for Paul continuing in his role.

“With his vast experience and knowledge we fully believe he is the best person for the job. His loyalty to the club has been exemplary throughout his time with us.

“It will be a tough task for the season ahead as he looks to build a competitive squad aimed at giving us an opportunity to gain promotion.

“With so many local midlands clubs it means that we are all fishing in the same pool for players.  Let’s enjoy the challenge.  One plus for the season ahead is that with so many local games we should have good support on the road.

“Everybody was invigorated by the noise and atmosphere created by the young group of supporters of ‘Baby Brakes’ who joined us and continued to grow in size during last season.”

The new Southern League Premier Central season will begin on August 5 with Leamington set to play the likes of Stratford Town, Nuneaton Borough, Alvechurch, Bromsgrove Sporting and Redditch United.
