Brakes sign Sky Blues striker

While Charlton fans have been waiting for confirmation of the appointment of Iain Dowie, Leamington manager Jason Cadden has not been letting the grass grow under his feet at Harbury Lane. The former hairdresser turned sport scientist has more than one of the best barnets in Midlands non-league football, he also has a good footballing brain.

Now he has swooped for 19-year old former Coventry City striker Ben Mackey. Mackey was the youngest-ever player to turn out for the Sky Blues first team against Ipswich in April 2003 aged 16 years and 167 days (shades of Paul Konchesky). But he failed to secure a regular place in the first team and went on to Walsall and then to Linfield in Ireland. He commented, 'Everything about this club is professional ... I'm excited about coming here.'
