Taken from the Leamington Courier online

ANOTHER spectacular free kick from Harj Dhesi gave Brakes victory in the new Leamington Invitational Cup at Manor Park on Wednesday night.
The Nationwide Conference club, old rivals of Leamington, fielded a strong side including six first-team regulars. Boro took the lead on 15 minutes when the Leamington defence failed to clear its lines. Darren Timms hit a spectacular equaliser on the half-volley after good approach work from Nick Mort, Ian Billington and Paul Eden.
Dhesi fired in his 20-yard free kick before the break when Eden was pulled down outside the box by the stranded keeper. Nuneaton fielded a couple of trial players after the break, when Benson Miyoba missed a golden chance to put Brakes further ahead.
Co-manager Jason Cadden said: "It was an excellent workout and we did very well and played some cracking football. Nuneaton put out a strong side and everyone really enjoyed it."
Ex-Racing Club Warwick defender Tom Sidwell made his debut for Brakes in the match.
The two-legged cup contest will be settled in the new year, when Boro will help celebrate the switch on of the New Windmill Ground floodlights.
