Date set for Chris McMullen Memorial Trophy clash

LEEK CSOB and Leek Town will contest the Chris McMullen Memorial Trophy at Pointon Park, Cheddleton, on Sunday, July 23.

Local football legend Chris, who played for both clubs, died in 2012, aged 52, following a short battle with cancer.

The tough tackling defender captained Leek Town in the FA Trophy Final against Barrow at Wembley in 1990.

Chris, pictured left, made over 400 appearances for the Blues before joining the Old Boys as manager and later became club chairman.
