FELIXSTOWE & Walton United are poised to complete the signing of midfielder Blake Saker from fellow Ridgeons League Premier Division side Leiston.

Saker, who was linked with a move to the Seasiders in the summer, is expected to tie up the formalities tomorrow after agreeing to join Glen Driver's side.

The former Tottenham Hotspur trainee, who played a prominent role in Leiston's FA Cup run earlier this season, was at Notcutts Park on Saturday to watch Felixstowe & Walton defeat Woodbridge Town 3-2 to guarantee their top-flight status for next season as they reached the 40-point mark.
