Clean bill of health for Leiston

LEISTON manager Mark Morsley has reported a clean bill of health ahead of tomorrow’s FA Vase quarter-final tie against Coalville Town.

Leiston’s players came through Tuesday’s Ridgeons League Premier Division match at home to FC Clacton – when they were watched by representatives from Coalville – without any fresh injuries, meaning only long-term injury victim Shane Wardley is unavailable.

Morsley said: “We played as well as we have done all season. Anyone who saw us play on Tuesday will be wary of us.”

Coalville vice-captain Cameron Stuart is back in the squad after serving a two-match suspension but fellow defenders Leigh Everitt (suspended) and Liam Kay (cup-tied) are unavailable.

Other than that manager Adam Stevens has a full squad to select from and will again be looking towards Matt Moore to lead his team – the forward has found the net in every round so far to take his tally to seven goals in five games.
