LEISTON chairman Andy Crisp believes the club has become the victim of their own early season cup success and has taken a pop at former midfielder Blake Saker.

In an impressive first half of the campaign, the Blues made the first round of the FA Cup, the fourth round of the FA Vase and looked to be serious title contenders come Christmas.

However, a host of injuries has followed in the New Year and a slump in form now sees them 25 points behind leaders Lowestoft with just five games in hand.

Crisp said: “The games have caught up on us. We've had some unfortunate long-term injuries and with our squad being as small as it is it has effected us over the past few weeks.”
