McGuire says Thackley were bit ‘lucky’ in derby day Albion win

Yesterday saw Thackley joint managers Patrick McGuire and Mick Garrod celebrate their first win since taking charge of the NCEL Premier Division side.

A narrow 1-0 derby day win over neighbours Albion Sports – with Luke Robinson’s winning coming twelve minutes before the end- saw their first win in their fourth outing as a management duo.

“We’re delighted with the win today, and also relieved to get that first win on the board as managers! Albion are a good side and are always tough opponents.

“1-0 probably doesn’t reflect the game as there were chances for both teams but fortunately for us we got the bit of luck we’ve needed today.

“It was always going to be tough in a local derby, played out in difficult conditions but once again the lads stuck to their tasks and have earned their rewards.”
