FOOTBALL - Leamington make double striker signing as top scorer Turner departs

LEAMINGTON have signed strikers Callum Stewart and Henry Landers to offset the departure of last season’s top scorer Dan Turner.

Emerging talent Stewart joins from Coventry Sphinx who he helped win the United Counties League Premier Division South title last season.

The 21-year-old lives just a stone’s throw away from the Your Co-Op Community Stadium and trained with the Brakes during pre-season last term.

Stewart said: “I’m delighted to sign for Leamington, and obviously being from the town I’m really excited to get going.

“I know a couple of the lads from last year, and I’m really looking forward to meeting the rest of them as well.”

And Brakes boss Paul Holleran has also swooped for Banbury United striker Landers who netted 19 goals in 92 appearances during his time with the Puritans.

The 23-year-old helped Banbury win the Southern League Premier Central title in 2021/22.

Landers said: “I am delighted to have signed for Leamington.

“After the first conversation I had with the gaffer I knew it would be the right move for me. It’s a club with a lot of history.

“I hope I can help the team to have a really positive season, and I can’t wait to get started and enjoy my football here.”

However, Leamington have lost the services of talismanic striker Turner who topped the club’s goalscoring charts in each of the last two seasons.

Turner has completed a move to National League North side Brackley Town for an undisclosed fee having scored 33 goals in 86 appearances for the Brakes.

Turner said: “I’d just like to send a massive thank you to the staff, players and fans for the past two years at the club, where I’ve been surrounded by great people and made many great memories.

“I will always be thankful to the club and the gaffer for giving me a platform to play first team football and help me find my love for the game again.

“I’m sure next season will be a positive one and will see the club get back where they belong in the National League North.”

At the other end of the pitch, Leamington have snapped up experienced full-back Josh Quaynor from newly-promoted Halesowen Town.

The 31-year-old primarily operates down the left-hand side of defence or midfield and spent four seasons with Bromsgrove Sporting prior to his move to Halesowen.

Quaynor said: “When I got the phone call from Paul and he said he was interested in signing me it was a no brainer for me.

“He’s always had good sides as a manager, and Leamington are a good established club.

“I’ve played at some big clubs including Bromsgrove and Halesowen, winning promotion with both and league trophies, which will always be some of the best memories of mine.

“But sometimes in non-league football you’ve got to try and better yourself and do what is right for you.”
