Leek Town boss Neil Baker has brought in two new signings.

6ft 5 inch central defender Mat Bailey has joined the club from Premier Division Stafford Rangers, where he had been captain. The experienced player, 32, started his career at Nantwich Town and was initially a striker, but was soon picked up by Stockport County.

After various loan spells he moved to Crewe Alexandra where he was converted to a central defender. Again he was sent out on loan to a number of clubs, before ending his three-year spell at Gresty Road by joining Northwich Victoria.

Further spells with Nantwich Town and AFC Telford United followed before he joined Stafford Rangers. Bailey made his debut against Stamford and immediately impressed as Blues kept a clean sheet for only a second time in 2018.

Also arriving at Harrison Park is 19-year-old defender Caleb Richards, who has joined on loan from League One Blackpool.
