Before yesterday’s Toolstation NCEL Division One clash with thirteenth-placed Armthorpe Welfare at the Southerns Stadium, Yorkshire Amateur’s Joint Manager Neil Sibson had demanded a reaction from his squad after last Saturday’s defeat at Nostell Miners Welfare-so he must have been pretty satisfied after third-placed Ammer’s 5-1 win, writes Colin Muncie.
A crowd of 63 looked on as a brace from Adam Shaw (10 and 12 minutes) put the home side in control. T’nique Fishley made it three on the half-hour, and Shaw completed his hat-trick bang on half time. Ash Flynn’s 70-th minute penalty put Amateur five up before Alan Jackson pulled one back for Wellie in added time.
Neil told the Bootiful Game “We had a good chat with the boys before the game to emphasise what we expected from them today following on from last week’s performance. All the boys tuned in and produced the goods on the pitch today, so we must give them credit for a great display; not only football, the whole package was evident today .If we’d scored the chances we missed, today could have been double figures, if I’m completely honest”.
Neil was particularly impressed by some of his youngsters.” Another pleasing aspect from today was that we had quite a few missing, which gave us the chance to play a couple of lads from the Development team -who stepped up to the mark” he told us “.
“We conceded on 94 minutes, but overall we are happy with the points and the performance from everyone -and we will move on to next week”.
