Leamington Club Profile
One of the most famous non-league sides of the late 1970s and early 1980s, Leamington met us for the first and only time in 1985. That was an FA Cup Preliminary Round clash; a match that we won thanks to two Doug Pirie goals. Part of the reason, however, that more meetings didn’t happen is due to the Brakes disappearing in 1988. It came after they lost their Windmill Ground. Not until 2000 was the club brought back to life.

Leamington Travel Information – Distance: 72 miles
Get yourself onto the M1 and head north. At Junction 17, keep left and continue onto the M45 towards Coventry. At the end of the motorway, continue over the roundabout for the A45. But this is only for a mile. That’s because you need to take the A4071 exit and join the B4453 that goes past the Travelodge.
After 3.3 miles, turn left for the A423, then left again onto the B4455 Fosse Way. Stay on Fosse Way for around 7.5 miles until you come to a junction with Harbury Lane. Go right down here and head on for 0.4 miles.
The ground is quite far out of the town, which puts the nearest station three miles away. And there are no footpaths for two of those miles.
