BASHLEY 1 BISHOPS CLEEVE 1 (MANAGER'S VIEW)
By Graham Speechley-Price | Saturday 6th September 2014
We approached this game with a far more offensive team and feel we had a very
positive response. Nuno Pereria added some excellent movement up front and
worked well with Richard Dugdale. We felt we controlled the first half and deserved
more than a single goal advantage.
The second half we paid for allowing a couple of long balls to bounce one resulting in
the sending off the other leading to the goal. It was a shame our other new signing
Dammy Bada was unavailable as I’m sure he’s a player that will excite the fans. We
have two more additions we are hoping to add by the weekend and our squad has a
far more competitive look now than it did at the beginning of the season.
Our reserves produced another strong performance despite the club having fourteen
players unavailable beating Bemerton of the premier division 4-3. What was really
pleasing was the three supporters who took the time out to compliment us on the
progress the team is making and one who commented on the club as a whole. We
regularly have thirty players at training and their of a good quality and hopefully the
progress were making will continue.
I’d like to thank Tony Martin again for the excellent job he does in setting our kit out on
match days. We are exploring other options which will further enhance the squad and
hopefully our hard work will begin to reap some dividends.
Onwards and upwards.
