LEAMINGTON have confirmed the signing of midfielder Caine Elliott from Halesowen Town.

The 22-year-old central midfielder scored two goals in 34 appearances for newly-promoted Halesowen in the Southern League Premier Central last season.

A product of Rugby Town’s academy, Elliott is good friends with Brakes forward Cally Stewart and will take another step up the non-league ladder next season.

Elliott said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be here. Leamington is a fantastic club with a great manager. Obviously the club had a great season getting promotion last time out but the season coming up is going to be very tough in a good league. I’m excited and looking forward to the challenge.

“Cally and I are very good mates and he did have an impact on me deciding to come here. Not too long ago we were talking about playing in the same team as for the last couple of years we have always played against each other, so it is another thing to look forward to.”

Brakes boss, Paul Holleran, added: “There were three local youngsters everyone wanted last summer – Cally Stewart, Ewan Williams and Caine Elliott, now we’ve completed the trio.

“I’m delighted to get another local talent through the door, Caine had a superb time at Rugby where he started out and followed that up last season at Step Three when he moved to Halesowen.

“I’m looking forward to working with Caine and seeing him make the step up to Step Two football and further develop at the club.”

Elliott broke into Rugby’s team as a teenager and scored 26 goals in 112 appearances during his near four-year spell with the club.

After helping Valley win promotion back to Step Four, he made the move to Halesowen where he enjoyed another impressive campaign.
