Leiston snare Jemel Fox

AFC Sudbury discard Jemel Fox is included in the Leiston squad for today’s game against Romford.

Fox signed for the Ryman League Division One North leaders yesterday, after his contracted was terminated by their Suffolk rivals.

Leiston manager Mark Morsley said of the 20-year-old left-sided player: “He is a player I have admired for some time after I first came across him at Needham Market.

“He ticks all the boxes for the type of player I am after, with his hunger, fitness and physique.”

Fox had his contract terminated by AFC Sudbury manager Chris Tracey for an alleged continued breach of terms and conditions. Fox did not appeal during the written notice period.

Earlier this season Fox vowed to learn from his mistakes after being handed a 56-day ban following his sending off in a six-a-side league game after disputing the dismissal of another player.

He was suspended for 35 days for being sent off and received an additional 21-day ban for refusing to give his name to the match official and only returned to competitive action towards the end of October.
