LEEK Town boss Neil Baker is hopeful of retaining the majority of his playing staff that took his side to the top of the BetVictor NPL South East Division. "I am in touch with all the players. I have spoken to them two or three times during lockdown, and staff. I don't think there wll be a big turnaround, or certainly not as big as there was last year," he said. The club's leading goalscorer Tim Grice won't be going anywhere, having already committed himself to wearing a Blues shirt again, which is great news for Baker and fans alike. Despite the FA and NPL expunging playing records for the 2019-20 season, Grice's goals, which took him onto the 199 mark, won't be written off by the club. Baker said: "Those games were played, those goals were scored and those points were won and lost. "So, as far as the club's history goes they have to stand, whether that is Tim Grice, or the fact we only conceded 19 goals in 28 games "That is a remarkable statistic at any level of football and all members of the team, not just goalscorers, take pride in that and should be remembered."
