Regan knows Eccleshill had a tough test in narrow win over EYC

Sean Regan Eccleshill United

On paper, at least, it looked like a probable three points for Eccleshill United, second in Toolstation NCEL Division One, when East Yorkshire Carnegie (17th) visited the Mitton Group Stadium yesterday-and although the Eagles took the win, Carnegie made them fight until the very end –and Eccleshill Manager Sean Regan acknowledged that it had been a gruelling encounter, writes Colin Muncie.

It was the 88th minutes when Aran Basi popped up with the winner for the home side, to the relief of most of the 43-strong Kingsway crowd.

Sean told the Bootiful game “I’m delighted at the outcome of the result after what was a frustrating game. We tried to break Carnegie down but it just didn’t seem to go for us in the attacking third. However -the team that we are- we just wouldn’t give up and we deserved it in the end against a very hard working team”.

“Finally the day rounded off with the rewards for us and debutant Aran Basi who came on to score a last minute winner. Good for him-and good for Eccleshill!”

From the opposing dugout EYC assistant manager Lewis Sarel said, “We are disappointed not to get anything from the game. We performed very well as a team against an in form team. We probably had the better of the clear cut chances but we didn’t take them and that cost us , credit to there keeper he made a couple of good saves.

“We had a poor penalty decision go against us but our keeper Lewis Hill saved it and had a very good game. It’s a shame for him we didn’t keep a clean sheet because he deserved one and is getting better every week which is a positive for us.

“We will take our performance into the next few games and if we keep playing like that we will pick up points over our next few games.”
