Leek Town Chairman Jon Eeles has sung the praises of Blues officials following two UEFA Under-17s Elite Championship games staged at Harrison Park last week.
Commenting on the events Eeles said, “The recent UEFA internationals held at Harrison Park, particularly the England versus Finland match, have been an overwhelming success.
“The Club has received many compliments and accolades in terms of our facilities, the pitch and the professionalism of staff which speaks volumes for the Club and the progress made in recent seasons.
“The Board would like to thank all those involved over the two games for their time, patience and professionalism.
“There are too many people to thank individually but it would be remiss not to give special acknowledgement to Andy Wain, Andy Reeves and Chris Hermiston, who have worked diligently and tirelessly to deliver these fixtures successfully.
“The UEFA games have raised the profile of the Club and introduced some new football fans to Harrison Park – the Board hope some of these will fans will return to sample a Leek Town fixture in the future.”
“The normal business of fulfilling league fixtures and challenging for a play-off place resumes on Bank Holiday Monday against Newcastle Town at Harrison Park,” he added.
