Leighton Town FC manager Craig Bicknell has been cleared of a Class A drugs charge and is waiting to hear if another charge will be dropped, the LBO can reveal.

Mr Bicknell, along with his brother Paul, had been charged with two counts of conspiracy to possess Class A drugs (cocaine) with intent to supply.

Following a trial at Aylesbury Crown Court the Leighton manager was cleared of one count on Wednesday, while the jury were unable to come to a verdict on the second.

Craig Bicknell is due back in court on November 5, when it will be decided whether there will be a retrial for the second count.

His brother Paul was found not guilty on both counts and has been discharged.
