Whilst our hopes of winning the league have disappeared it is important that we do our very best to achieve the highest league position as possible as this will have a bearing on whether we play at home or away in the play-off semi-final.  I look forward to another large attendance in what has been an amazing show of support for Marine this season by football fans from all over Merseyside.”

Paul Leary added:   

“I look forward to welcoming the players, staff, officials and supporters of Leek Town to the Marine Travel Arena for this crucial last league game of the season, and to possibly another meet up with them in the play-offs for promotion at the end of April.”
